E News 26 November 2014

Hi All,

We had a great turnout at Lake Alexander for our final swim, bike, run format event for 2014.  Conditions were hot and steamy and the competition much the same!

Our thanks to RD’s Tony Cox and Julia Logan for taking charge of the running of our event. 

As always their efforts and those of all our volunteers on race day are hugely appreciated by club members as is the support given by Blue Cycles NT.

Do check our updated calendar for details of all our upcoming events for the remainder of season 2014|2015 as there have been extra events included in response to member feedback. 

Some roster spots still need to be filled to ensure these events can go ahead -  email if you can help out.

The final event on the seniors calendar is our traditional Christmas Splash N Dash, with Nightcliff Pool reopening just in time for this!

There will be no E News next week, so please check our website, facebook page or Twitter for updates.
