E News 10 September 2014

Hi All,

E News is back!  Thanks for your kind words, appears you all enjoy your weekly dose of eclectic tri news to your Inbox.  It’s that time of year again and we will shortly be culling the distribution lists.  If you drop off for some reason, do let us know.

Our AGM took place prior to the duathlon on Sunday.  Although we still have a vacancy for President, the committee is nonetheless looking very healthy and will have its first meeting next week.

President:  Vacant
Treasurer: Lisa Payne
Secretary:  Robyn Stanley
Permits:  Tony Cox
Equipment Manager: Alex Murdock
Junior Coordinator: Steve Goat
General Committee: Graeme Parsons; David Hancock; Belinda Townend; Gary Wall; Justin Tranter
Public Officer: Brett Verity
Member Protection Officer: Tony Cox

We take this opportunity to thank retiring committee members:  Karen Lewis who stood down after three years as treasurer; Simon Wiese who has been our Public Officer and has recently reviewed our Constitution; John Arrigo who had a season in the Vice President’s chair, was our delegate at Triathlon NT meetings and also undertook the roll of Equipment Officer and Luke Hansen who spent the year as junior co-ordinator.  As well, Steve Goat stepped down as President and will now undertake overseeing our junior events.  

Following the AGM the first of our 2014 | 2015 Duathlon Series events took place.  A huge thank you to John Thyne for volunteering for the Race Director role so this could go ahead.  And a big thank you to all those who assisted John.  The runs may well have been a little longer than advertised but everyone was up for the challenge!

The Blue Cycles NT team was also on hand to assist at the duathlon and we thank them for continuing to support our events.

1.  Interested in how you would have gone in your age category at the ITU Worlds in Edmonton?  The results for Sprint & Standard distances are available here.

2.  A number of farewells happening lately including:  Katie Kelly who has taken up a new position in Newcastle; Marcus Lisle heads off shortly for Adelaide and Jemima Findley is also leaving us.

3.  Marcus Lisle has bookended his time with the club with pair of duathlons.  His first club event was at Hidden Valley (2008) and his last, the duathlon at Casuarina Beach on Sunday.  Marcus has been our fastest Ironman through recent years, consistently going under 10 hrs and his quiet dedication will be missed. 

4.  Spare a thought for Shaye Hatty whose Saturday was spent conquering the Spartan Beast – a pretty gruelling 42km run with about 70 obstacles thrown!.  Shaye knocked it over in 9:11:55 for 10th in the Elite female category.

5.  Also at the weekend, Belinda Townend teamed up for the 64km Kuranda to Port Douglas Ultra race.  Her team included former member Kathy McKay and the girls made podium in their category in 3rd.

6.  A number of those heading for Ironman Malaysia in a couple weeks have succumbed to flu.  We wish them a speedy recovery and a swift return to training.

7.  We were saddened to learn of the recent passing of Janet Lewins.  Our sympathy to Brian Lewins , family and the many friends of Janet.

8.  Blue Cycles NT have announced a new store will be opening in Palmerston shortly.

9.  NT Government Sports vouchers can be used for junior club memberships. For more information, email Triathlon NT or call 0406 609 463.

10.  Thanks to those members who recently counted cyclists in the Super Tuesday Bike Count and nominated Darwin Triathlon Club to benefit.
