Weekly Update (25 June 2014)


Good Afternoon everyone.
Hope you are having a fantastic week.  If you haven’t been out of bed early, make sure you do that at least once this week as the sunrises have been absolutely spectacular.  Thanks to everyone who have been sharing their photos of them on fb.  Update is relatively short and sweet this week.

Only 3 more sleeps till the annual presentation night.  The presentation committee has been working hard on bringing you all a different night with lots of great ideas.  Make sure you come nice and early, and dressed up, ready to enjoy a great night of laughs and friendship.  If you have any photos you would like to share on the night please email them to Louisa via secretary@redcliffetriclub.com

The evening will kick off at 5pm with welcome drinks and fancy snacks. At 5.45 we will start the awards and then dinner and more awards and then desert and finish off with a DJ and dancing until midnight.

It’s nearly a new financial year and that means lots of memberships are due. When ever you are ready, Triathlon Australia and Redcliffe Tri Club memberships can be renewed at:
TA and RTC membership provides many benefits and it would be great if you could renew as soon as you can.  Just like this current year, mandatory TA membership of Tri club members mean that if you would like to be a member of RTC and participate in any RTC training sessions you need to be a current TA member. All the membership details can be found on our website or the TA website. There has been some changes to TA and Club family memberships which are aimed at getting more families to join TA and clubs by making it more affordable. Coaches will be checking membership status at sessions and you will not be able to participate if you are not a current member.

Some people attempting to do this via their Iphone have been having some difficulty.  The link has been checked and double checked and works.  If you have problems go directly to the TA website and make sure you nominate RTC as your club for your discount.

A huge congratulations to Fiona B who has been called up to the Australian team for the 70.3 world championships.  Fiona is evidence that hard work and consistency pays off and we are very excited to watch her and the rest of the 70.3 team go around at Canada in September.  Go you good thing.

Sunday 20th July is the Redcliffe J2J fun run put on by our sister club Moreton Bay Road Runners.  It is a great morning where many RTC get to test their speed on a great run course.  More RTC members are involved as pacers in the 10km and ½ marathon event.  We also provide 2 water stations (across from each other) where we can support all the runners, cheer them on, make them laugh, throw water at some of the them (the RTC ones), have a good time and raise funds for equipment, presentation night and other RTC events.  We are calling for helpers to help out on the water table.  You can help out before and after your race, or for the whole morning.  All help gratefully accepted.  No skills required and dress ups strongly encouraged.  Costume accessories can be provided. Oh yeah, Family members most welcome to also help.  If you can offer some time please contact Beth at secretary@redcliffetriclub.com or leave a message on our fb page.  From memory you are required from about 6.30am onwards for a few hours.
