E News 9 July 2014

Hi All,

On Saturday we were able to reflect on the recently completed 2013/14 year and celebrate our members many achievements during that period. 

Drinks and nibbles enjoyed, our awards were presented (see list below) before we sat back and enjoyed our catered BBQ.  The outdoor casual setting was given the thumbs up by those in attendance.

A big thank you to Blue Cycles NT and AMart Sports for supporting our awards night. 

We encourage our members to sign up to the AMart Community Kickback program that directly benefits our club. We will have some cards at our next event or you can get them in store - ask for your card to be linked to Darwin Triathlon Club.

Our first event for the new season takes place this Sunday.  Good news, RD Barry Sullivan advises that wetsuits are allowed.  Get your 2014/2015 point score off to an early start!!
