The second of our
Off Road Triathlons was held at the weekend and we somehow managed perfect
conditions for this one as well. There are some advantages to a dry
A big thank you to our volunteer RD Luke
Fronsko who along with the Cycle Zone Darwin crew set up
another challenging off road course for us all to enjoy.
Thanks also to our many wonderful helpers including the rego team of Kathryn Fuller
& ClareLabowitch; Fran Edis
(Fruit & Ice duty); Tim
who did general duties and also to the people who helped with set up and
those who assisted with pack away.
It is a very busy time behind the scenes right now, particularly for our
Cox who is driving our event preparations, overseeing our
new trailer & rack acquisitions and who also recently went on a clean
up mission in the storage shed. We now have items stored in large
containers, hopefully the wildlife will find these less palatable!

rate until end of March only.
12. Don't forget our competition! You are in the running to win a
club tshirt if you enter Sprint Series #1 early, get on to that now here .
13. There are a number of vacancies on our event
calendar. If you haven't yet put up your
hand we would love to hear from you.
It would be such a shame if the committee have to cancel an event for lack
of a volunteer Race Director when there are so many of our members who
could manage this task easily.
Lots of help is provided. It's not like it was years ago as all the
behind the scenes stuff (sanctioning, permits, water safety, ambulance,
permanent swim buoys etc) is already done for you. You don't even
have to give the race brief if you don't wish to!
Hoping to be inundated with RD & other volunteers today. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org
if you can fill a vacancy.
