Weekly Update 10 September 2021

Hi Everyone,

Lot’s to cover this week!

Firstly it’s another busy weekend of racing coming up with lots of Club members racing at Blenheim, Outlaw Bowood and Reading Triathlon. Very best of luck to everyone whether you are Weekend Warrior-ing at Blenheim, doing your first sprint race, or like me just dragging your sorry *rse around a half distance at Bowood and hoping nobody catches you on camera!

Katie is still looking for aid station volunteers for Bowood on Sunday and so if you’re free and fancy seeing racing up close and hanging out with other Club members then get in touch with her asap or pm/ email me.

Secondly, in terms of the administration and running of YOUR Club advance notice that the Annual General Meeting will be held on Monday 25 October 7pm at Oxsrad. It will be in person but with virtual attendance possible (pizza and beer for in person attendees!). Sign up here for pizza and here for remote (no pizza!). Many thanks for those who have already shown interest in standing for the committee for the next year – plenty of time and opportunities for anyone else, just pm me for more info.

Thirdly at this week’s committee meeting we settled on Saturday 2 October for our first social event in far too long. We took account of the informal member poll on FB and decided that sooner was better in terms of the difficulty and uncertainty of planning more than a few weeks into the future, and that something flexible and relatively informal with outdoor space was the way to go. Hence the format of an afternoon/ early evening family friendly BBQ party from 3pm for people to drop in for as little/ long as they fancy. Ideal carb loading for any London marathon entrants … dust off your diaries and put the date in!!

Finally well done David LP and Fran for their age group wins at the ETU qualifiers at Boxend last weekend, and welcome to our new members this week!

Any questions, as ever just ping me.
