Tri Gear Order ... finally!
Apologies for the delay in getting our latest tri gear order out to you but
we have updated designs and drum roll .... the committee has voted to allow
for this order only.
For this order we are offering Men's & Ladies Tri Suits, Sleeved Tri Suits,
Tri Tops, Tri Shorts and Running Tees.
We encourage members to take advantage of this opportunity to get
training and racing wear at below cost. The prices shown are the reduced
price. Eg tri suit shown below should be $160, with the club
subsidy you will only pay $145.
for further info, size chart links, and to place your order. Be quick,
there is a short turnaround on this.
We will order a small supply tri tops and tri shorts in junior sizes.

if you wish to reserve a particular size other wise it will be on a first
in basis. Junior prices are less a further $10 for kids sizes.

Thanks to those who answered our call and have already volunteered for a
roster position at one of our events (at this stage we need to fill all
positions up to our Christmas Splash N Dash).
We do still have some vacancies and want to get them filled
asap. There is an expectation that all members will volunteer for a
key position at least once a season so please check the Events
Calendar and let us know your preferred option
if you haven't already done so.
Now that the Tour de France and Rio Olympics are behind us, time to get off
the couch and get active. Our duathlon on Sunday is perfectly timed!
