E NEWS - 29 APRIL 2016

Yes Friday is an unusual day to be receiving E News I know, but we need to confirm our change of date for the Enduro this weekend.

After requesting feedback from members, the majority (80%) voted to change to this Monday 2 May 2016 and we have now been able to confirm water safety, St John etc etc will be in place.

So ..


Monday 2 May 2016
Lake Alexander
7am (check in closes 6:45am)

200m swim, 5km bike, 2km run x 3

Online entry now open here


Race Director:  Clare McVeity

1.  An email will be sent direct to those who were already registered prior to date change.

2.  We will again have lucky volunteer draw and member draws following the event, so please stay around. You have to be there to win.

3.  Club t shirts prizes to the 15th & 25th members to enter (limited sizes & colours).

1.  Good luck to our junior co-ordinator Mel Lind who is stepping up in distance this weekend at Ironman 70.3 Port Macquarie.

2.  A girl's weekend away coming up for Kylie Scholz & Ali Fitch.  They are both on the start list for Ironman Australia.  See today's NT News.

3.  Heading West this weekend is Dee Walsh who will be tackling Ironman 70.3 Busselton.  Good luck!
4.  Another farewell.  This time it's Jean Serini who is leaving Darwin.  He says,  "It has been an immense pleasure being part of the club in the Top End, even if it was for a little period of time".  All the best Jean - we will always remember your first swim leg!!

5.  Well done to our members who took part in the Anzac Day Swim Challenge including timing guru Gary Wall who got through 5.05km in a wettie and Stu Fitch who is preparing for the 20km Lake Argyle swim & knocked over 8.4km.

6.  Also noticed team Moiron came out of retirement for the swim.  Moria Wigley and Ronnie Griep are past Lake Argyle duo team champions.

7.  Entry is open here for our Kerran Mudgway Memorial Club Championships taking place at Lake Bennett Resort on Saturday 21 May 2016 4:30pm.  This is our highlight club event for the season and if you haven't yet had a crack at the Lake Bennett course, put it on your must do list now.  It's a great afternoon / evening event and satisfaction level at crossing the finish line is second to none.  There are two distances - Championship 1km swim, 30km bike, 8km run or a short option of 500m swim, 15km bike, 4km run.  We highly recommend booking a room or a camping spot at Lake Bennett Resort (mention the club) and making a weekend of it.

8.  We still have a call out for a volunteer Race Director for our Lake Bennett event.  Let us know if you are interested in helping out.

9.  Bumped into Michael Mondy this week.  He is still out of action with injuries from his bike/car bingle which put him out of Busso last year.  Very frustrating for him, he is itching to get back to training and we hope that will be real soon.

10.  Hearing Kathryn Fuller is catching big barra this week.

11.  We still have 1 x Men's club tri suit Medium ($160), 1 x Men's club tri shorts Medium ($77) for sale.  Email if interested in purchasing.
