E News 25 March 2015

Hi All,

All reports have given the weekend’s Sprint #2 & Come & Tri events a huge thumbs up. 

We have RD extraordinaire Phill Hatty to thank.  Phill, along with the merry band of enthusiastic volunteers, sure knows how to get things hopping!

Thanks a bunch!

Also a big thank you to Vision Money for providing the post-race bbq and … drum roll … coffee!  Much appreciated by our participants.

As well we had the Blue Cycles NT team on hand helping out again and we thank them for their continued support.

We are pleased to have given so many non-members the opportunity to Come & Tri over the past couple of events. Hopefully they enjoyed the experience and that we see them on our member list soon.
