Weekly Update 13 August 2021

Hi Everyone,

It’s been a funny old year, a lot of very different experiences for us all, even though the great British summer has reverted back to its usual wet and grey experience.

All the more reason to celebrate Club members who have overcome all of the logistical arrangements and testing protocols to travel and race. Keep them coming please and read all about it here. In time I hope to see other useful and helpful articles such as bike handling and maintenance, route planning and how to organise your own training plans.

Next up, and no doubt related to the bad weather we’ve been having, you may have seen that the pool sessions we organise are now getting back to fully booked very quickly. Please play nicely in terms of sign up and don’t hog a space in all the sessions each week unless everybody who wants to has had the opportunity to have a swim. We are looking at more lane space now that pools and leisure centres are opening up a bit more so bear with us please on that front.

There are still some places for relay on 21 August, with 33 signed up already it’s going to be a great opportunity to see old friends and new. Volunteers and supporters are also very welcome. Sign up closes this weekend.

Outlaw Bowood volunteering September 12: a great opportunity to get up close and personal to the action whilst watching Club members race with the best!

Mike Dunmore’s funeral and wake is being held next Tuesday afternoon – just pm me for more info.

Finally apologies for those who read the newsletter by email and got it a day late last week; the team of imps and minions who keep our lovely website going got infiltrated by temporary gremlin!

Any questions, as ever just ping me.
