E News 6 May 2015

Hi All,

With the dry season starting to kick in and another long weekend just past, we have all gone into crazy busy mode, with so much to do and see.  Some of us have even had our first dry season visitors descend! 

In triathlon land it is much the same. Busy, busy!

We have our Kerran Mudgway Memorial Club Championships coming up this weekend (with many of the mums among us getting leave passes to come out and play because it’s Mother’s Day).  With two distances on offer there is something to suit all members.  As always you are very welcome to form a team if you would prefer.

Note: Team entries are completed by the nominated team “captain” so have details of DAR Numbers and which timing chip you will use before you set up your team.

We will again have Blue Cycles NT crew on hand to assist at this event (thank you) but we also encourage you to check your own equipment beforehand and take your bike in before race day should you need repairs.
