1. The Park normally opens at 7:30am but the Ranger has indicated
that he will have the gate open early.
1. Good news: Our new equipment trailer is getting close to
2. Not so good news: We have been surprised by the lack of
response to our call out for volunteers to fill our roster positions.
This is most unusual so we are putting it down to dry season
3. We do need to fill those critical positions of Race Director, 2 x
Registration volunteers and 1 x Fruit | Ice volunteer for each event. For
now, as a priority, we need to fill positions for events up to and
including our Christmas Splash N Dash.
4. The Race Director position has become super easy in comparison to
a couple of years ago. We provide a lot of help, and can even get
someone to do the race brief if talking to a crowd isn't your thing! It's
basically setting up the course and being on hand during the event to
ensure things are going smoothly.
6. Should this call out fail to fill those positions, we may have to
look at doing a draw and allocating a date & position for each member
(this won't need to happen if members volunteer at least once in a season
& you may as well choose a date that suits).
7. Our other alternative is to perhaps cancel those events that
aren't filled and we definitely don't want to do that!
8. Our club has always had a fantastic volunteer culture, so we
anticipate hearing from each of you and filling that calendar with names
9. More good news: We welcomed Tatiane Kelly to the committee in
the position of Secretary.
Seeking Secretary – Hi all. The Triathlon Northern
Territory (TNT) AGM will be held in the next couple of months and I need
someone to nominate for the secretary position. Basically the role requires
that you take and prepare the meeting minutes, and collect and record the
mail. TNT meets roughly every two months – i.e. only six times a year. You
will need to be a member.
This is your opportunity to give something back to the sport in a minimal
but necessary way. Note that you cannot be trapped in the position forever
as the Constitution states that a committee member cannot serve for more
than two years in a row.
If you would like more information on TNT please visit the website www.triathlon.org.au/NT.
If you have a question please ask or email Christine Cakebread at email@example.com. If you are
totally awesome and can nominate please let me or the Executive Officer,
Megan Pickering - firstname.lastname@example.org,
