We are loving that
so many of you are enjoying our Super Sprint Series of events.
Good to have some "long time no see" faces turn up on Sunday as
well as some "first time ever" starters.
A big thank you to
and Stef Puszka
(our co RDs), Dee
Walsh (who stepped in at last minute to do post race
refreshments), and to all our other volunteers for their efforts on the
day. We sincerely appreciate the contribution of all our volunteers.
afterwards: " Thanks to everyone that helped out with
organising Super Sprint #2! As co-RD with Stef I was able to see
first hand just how generous the members of this club are to volunteer
their time for the benefit of others and for another successful Sunday
morning of triathlon. Keep it up!"
is the norm, so please don't be shy about putting up your hand to volunteer
as RD, and feel free to pair up for the task if you wish.

1. If you
haven't already read the fantastic article from the NT News on our members
competing at Ironman World Championships next month (Jac Crofton, Hannah Johnston,
you can check it out here.
2. Jac is already on her way to Kona & Corinne & Hannah take
off for the Big Island shortly.
3. Our members get up to all sorts of interesting things. As
well as running half marathons in Italy Anthony Beven has completed his
first climbing experience (ropes, boots, helmets & photos from great
heights) there as well. Scariest thing he has ever done so becoming a
professional mountain climber is definitely out for him!
4. Hearing Clare
Labowitch & Paulette
Aislabe did the Yurrebilla Ultra 56km at the weekend
(results not yet available).
5. Chattanooga has been announced as the host city for the 2017
Ironman 70.3 World Championships. Pro & age group women will race

6. Ironman Asia Pacific started some hearts fluttering
when they announced on social media that there would be 75 extra slots
for Ironman Melbourne in 2016. Many (myself included) asked for
clarification which was slow to appear. Finally we got "Apologies folks, it
should say 'exclusive' slots to Kona, not extra. As a Championship event,
more slots are allocated to this event. To clarify, there is a total of 75
slots to Kona for 2016."
7. Hope no one entered IM Melb thinking there would be 150 slots next year.
Moral: If it sounds too good to be true, read the fine
print or at least ask the question!
