E News 17 Sept 2014

Hi All,

The good news -  following our meeting last evening, we now have a full committee with Tony Cox stepping up to the President’s roll and Alex Murdock (equipment manager) & Justin Tranter’s (general committee) nominations endorsed.

Sub-committees have been formed, one to investigate the feasibility of the appointment of a paid Race Director for our club events and the other to streamline our registration/event check-in process.
The possibility of the future combining of junior and senior events will also be considered.

Look for our junior program details next month and in the meantime Triathlon NT’s junior sessions are available to members.

We welcome member feedback on the above or any other topic.
