Weekly Update 15 July 2022

Hi Everyone

I hope everyone is responsibly enjoying this lovely weather!

On Monday we had our monthly committee meeting at which we decided to hold an impromptu social asap. The best availability for the lake facilities was 19 July and so we are pleased to announce a post swim BBQ and beers courtesy of Social Secretary Katie and your Club committee. SIGN UP HERE!

Like Tory leadership candidates, you wait and wait for Club member race reports and then all of a sudden there’s an avalanche! No less than six reports this week from George, Kelly, Lucy, Rebecca, Sean and Tim. Many members say to me just how much they enjoy reading these reports, and I thank each and every one of the authors for their time and effort and kindness in sharing their experiences and race day emotions and little life hacks for everyone’s benefit. It’s part of what makes Oxford Tri such an awesome Club and an absolute pleasure to chair.

Thanks for all the feedback and nice comments following my Kit message earlier this week. The committee has decided to buy on spec a handful of trisuits for members to take a proper look and try on. We will set up a session once they’ve arrived in about two months’ time to do that so that members can make some better informed decisions, keep your eyes out for that announcement once it’s been set up.

It’s going to be a hot week coming up: why not come down for a FREE swim (or two) in the lake? Thanks also to the Club members who continue to volunteer for safety duties without me even having to chase and nag – that is very much appreciated!

Have a great week, and WEAR SUNSCREEN everybody!
