E News 10 June 2015

E NEWS 10 JUNE 2015

While others were shivering down south we experienced another long weekend in paradise with the dry season weather showing off & reminding us just why we love where we live!

On the tri front, we have a large  group of athletes and supporters heading for Ironman Cairns & Ironman 70.3 Cairns this weekend.

Our open water triathlon (21 June 15) is coming up soon, then we kick on to Triathlon NT's NT Long Course Triathlon on 5 July 15 (this year back to traditional distance and location).

Then it's time to relax at our our Annual Awards function on 11 July 15 - this is subsidized for members and is a laid back casual family affair not to be missed.


We are trialling a different E News format today, your feedback would be appreciated
