Hi All,

We are whipping through our amazing calendar of events.

Please note there won’t be an E News next week so you will find lots of info below.  This includes entry links for our up-coming Sprint Series as well as details of how non-members can sign up for our Come & Tri events. 

See you Sunday!

Event Notes:

1.  Help our already busy volunteers by ensuring you enter using your correct club DAR number and your correct timing chip number.

2.  Our timing system is good but it can’t read minds, so please make sure you go over the mats (those are the blue things on the ground, usually highlighted by orange witches hats J )

3.  Once finished your race do remember to not go over the mats again while still wearing your timing chip.  Thanks for your help here!

4.  Don’t forget your timing chip.

5.  The team from Blue Cycles NT will be present to assist at our event and are more than willing to help members out who find themselves in a last minute mechanical pickle!
