E NEWS 31 January 2017

We had an amazing morning of triathlon on Sunday.

Our members and our Come & Tri participants all had a blast.  Congrats to those who completed their first ever triathlon!

Thanks as well to all the Come & Tri-ers who provided feedback.  Appears we are a very friendly, supportive lot and many are looking to join DTC and to participate in more of our events.  You will be very welcome. You can join us online here.

You couldn't miss Sid the Seagull & Jack from Cancer Council NT who were on hand spreading the Sunsmart Awareness message #slip #slop #slap.  Thanks for coming down!

Our event raised $1700+ for Cancer Council NT who will use the funds for the support of cancer patients in the Territory.  Thanks to all for your generous donations.

At last, but certainly not least, a huge thank you to our volunters:  Race Director John Thyne whose race brief, humour and laid back approach quickly put the Come & Tri-ers at ease; rego volunteers Leanne Abel & Noellene Bland who excelled in getting our participants signed in, issued with timing chips etc; on post race refreshments was Richard Bland who also undertook a zillion other tasks; Lisa Payne & Callum; Tony Burns (aka Sid) and all the others who just chipped in and helped with set up and pack away. THANK YOU!
