E News 11 March 2015

Hi All,

With even the BoM calling our current weather a heatwave, do make extra sure you are staying well hydrated.

While I was away, Race #1 of the Sprint Series got underway and it was good to hear that so many of you were out tri-ing.  A big thank you to volunteer RD Brian Gallagher for his efforts with this event and also to all those who helped out on the day, including Blue Cycles NT.

You may have noticed that some of our upcoming events need roster positions filled. 

To enable those events to go ahead we do need those positions filled so please check the calendar here and if you can assist let us know asap. 

We do ask that all members help out on roster at least once in a season.   Many hands …
