RTC club update

Hi all,


It’s just two weeks till the second race of the TQ Club Championships and one of our home races, the Moreton Bay Tri. This is a really good, fast and flat race held at Clontarf on Oct 12 and it would be awesome to see lots of RTC people racing and supporting. TQ are also asking for people to help out on the day and this year all volunteers earn one point towards the TQ Club championships. If you are not racing and wish to help out, please email Tony at TQ. Plus, all the TQ Club Championships races and our own Moreton Bay Grand Prix go towards the RTC Club Championships awards, so go on and enter.


On the same weekend on Saturday morning Oct 11 between 8 and 12 is the North Lakes Aquatic Centre open day and we have been invited to participate. The coaches and committee are still finalising our plans for the morning, we will be running a swim session or two starting at 9.30 am and a run session and Paul is doing a wind trainer session, all as demonstrations to the public. We will also have our tent up with some people there to promote our club. We are looking for some people to participate in the sessions and be present on the day. If you are keen, can you let GB know and please wear your club polo shirt and any other club gear you have during the demo training sessions.


Triathlon Queensland have a couple of courses coming up which may interest you. There is a Technical Official course in Brisbane on Dec 6th and a Triathlon Coaching course on March 21/22 2015. If you think you may want to become a TO or a Triathlon coach, the club will assist you achieving these qualifications. All the info is on the TQ webpage.


A month ago TQ approached me to ask if we would like our club race, the Moreton Bay Grand Prix to one of the founding races in proposed club Duathlon championship series next winter leading into the TQ Duathlon at Springfield on August 9th. Tonight I met with Toowoomba Tri Club, Club Croc Tri Club and Tony and Rachel from TQ and started the planning for this series. I believe this is awesome for our club and our event and being a part of this series will really help us grow the Moreton Bay Grand Prix and our club. Dates are still being finalised for the three races, but it looks like our race will kick the series off on June 20th. The big change for us will be the addition of a third event for 7-11 year olds. The three clubs now have to come up with a name of this new series, please email me with any suggestions. I will keep you all updated with details as they are worked out.


During the last six days I have done three swims, a run and a ride so I’m officially in training for Noosa according to Cheyne’s jokes this morning so I might see you at some sessions and hopefully the weekend after next at the pool open day and the Moreton Bay Tri.
