E News 26 October 2016


I'm so loving the cooler conditions that the rain brings and hope you are too.  Also liking the change in the look of Darwin, from dry and dusty to clean and green, we are lucky it's happening so early this year.

Our juniors enjoyed the temperature drop for their event on Sunday.  Our thanks to junior co-ordinators Rena & Lyn and to all the adults who assisted with our junior activities on the day.  The kids are keen and there are some great skills developing. Date saver for next junior event:  Saturday 19 Nov 16 7:30am.

This Sunday we are heading off road at the first of our mtb triathlons for 2016 | 2017.  So that means it is time to check out your mountain or hybrid bikes & to wash off the mud or brush off the cobwebs in preparation.

Hint: Don't wear your best tri gear to this one!

We look forward to seeing you bright and early this Sunday at what is a highlight on on event calendar.  See below for info & entry details.
