Dec Club Tri Gear Order

Hi All,

In response to a number of requests our latest Club Design Tri Gear Order is now open online HERE
We have maintained our fantastic colours for this order and are offering:

|Men’s & Women’s Tri Suits | Men’s & Women’s Tri Top & Tri Pants | Men’s & Women’s T shirts (NEW) | Caps | Women’s Keyhole back Tri Suits (NEW)

We hope this covers most of your training and racing needs. 

This order of club design gear is timed for delivery end of January so we encourage you to think ahead regarding your training & racing needs.


1.  Size Chart:  It is very important to measure yourself and check sizes against this chart.  Fit is snug so recommend you order up if you are on cusp.

Club Gear Q&A:

Q:  What does the club design items look like?
A:  Most of you have seen members in club gear.  Images of the items can also be viewed as you place your online order.

Q:  Who is our supplier?
A:  Our suppliers are Cannibal - long time Oz triathlon suppliers.

Q:   Can I try items on to see what size I am?
A:   Sorry no. 

Q:   Is there more info on items?
A:   Yes.  Refer Cannibal website for more detailed description of their custom range.

Q:   How do I know what size to order?
A:   We recommend you measure yourself, check the size chart and then order relevant sizing.  Don't guess

Q:   What if I order and it doesn't fit?
A:   Happy to advertise the item for re sale in the E News on your behalf.

Q:  If I don't order now can I get what I want later?
A:  No guarantee.  

Q:  Why doesn't the club hold uniform stocks?
A:  A number of reasons including deterioration in our climate, storage, administration, cost to the club and the volunteer time involved.  

Q:  Why do I have to pay up front?
A:  The club has to pay up front before delivery. Club gear order is a voluntary service to members & experience tells us this is the easiest way to manage. 

Q:  If I don't order now, when will the next order be done?
A:  Not known. 

Q:  How much profit does the club make on this?
A:  Zero.  The club also subsidizes the freight & design costs to ensure members get quality club gear at the lowest possible cost. The cost listed includes online service fee.

Q:  Closing date is next Sunday 4 Jan 2015, why are you asking people to order now?
A:  Some people are using the opportunity to place orders as Xmas gifts for others (making up their own voucher to present on Christmas Day) and we thought this a fantastic idea.  Also if enough orders are received, we can get the manufacture underway early which will facilitate early delivery.

Q:  How do I order?
A:  Order online here. 

Q:  What if minimum order numbers are not reached?
A:   If order numbers are not at or close to minimum, your payment will be refunded less online fee.

Q:  What is the expected time for delivery?
A:  If enough early orders are received we are hopeful of delivery by Aquathlon #2 otherwise end of January.   You will receive an email when orders are ready including delivery options.

Take advantage of this opportunity to order our quality club design gear.

E News 11 December 2014

Hi All,

Lots of tri happening over the past couple of weeks with members competing around the country and overseas as well as taking part in our Christmas Splash n Dash on Saturday evening. 

I’m hearing the numbers were on the small side but that enthusiastic fun was had by all.  Once again the combined relay appears to have left the adults gasping at the intensity! It was a shame Nightcliff Pool wasn’t available for use this year but I’m sure we will be back to our traditional location next Christmas!

A big thank you to Rob Weatherald for organising this session (again) and our thanks also to all those who chipped in to help on the day.  Blue Cycles NT were also present supporting our event – Thank you!
