Autumn Training – Week 9

And so the end is near……..we are down to the final week of the season and with that the end of year activities in our swim and newly introduced run. For some the season continues for another couple of weeks with half and full IronMan events so we wish all doing such events the very best!

This will be the last bulletin for the coming season so from a committee level we would like to thank all members who supported our training sessions, events and kept in touch with our weekly bulletins. We will have some more definite plans for next season after the AGM so keep an eye on this space!!!!

 

 

End of Year Swim: starts at 5:30 in Youghal.

We are expecting around 10-15 swimmers at this. As ever there are 2 swimming options with the overall finish at Garrykennedy. There will be people there in cars to drop your gear over to Garrykennedy. All you have to do is swim over, jump in the shower, get changed and head into the pub for pints.

If someone has a kayak or boat available on the day to provide cover for the swimmers then let a committee member know and come down and join in with us.

End of Year Run: starts at 5:30 in Youghal.

For those who are not swimming this year we are holding an end of year run. Leaving at the same time as the swim from the same location there will be a choice of 5k (direct run from Youghal to Garrykennedy) or 10k (Youghal – Portroe – Garrykennedy).

 

 

End of Year Cycle???: TBC!!

To complete the trio this year a few members have asked about having an end of year cycle that will take place on the Saturday morning prior to the swim / run events. At present we are thinking of cycling around the lake (68miles / 110k) with an early turn off (35miles / 55k) for anyone wanting to do part of the route.

We will put a message up on Viber later in the week to check for level of interest in this cycle and if enough want to do this cycle we will finalise times etc…watch this space!!!!!

 

 

End of Year AGM: starts at 8pm: venue Larkins Garrykennedy

Following the swim we will be having our annual AGM and we would hope that as many members as possible can attend this event as there have been a number of developments within the club over the past year and as ever we would like as many members as possible to come and play a role in the determining the aims and objectives of the club for the upcoming year. This is a pretty informal meeting and will not take too long but it is important that if you are free that you attend.

The club is more than just the committee and at committee level we would like to get the views and opinions of as many members as possible on further club development for the 2019 season.

In Triathlon terms we are a small club and so rely more heavily than other clubs on our members having an active role within the club so leaving the running of the club to the few on the committee is not a long-term viable option for us so we hope that the club will support this meeting! And as ever if you wish to have a more formal role within the club at committee level we are sure we can find something for you!!!!

As with our previous AGMs following the meeting there will be some food and a few drinks on offer for anyone interested…..another good reason to attend!!!!!

This year there will be changes to both the committee and training regimes so if you want to have your say on this for the coming season then please attend the AGM.

Any suggestions or issues that you may want to discuss regarding the club at this meeting then just let a member of the committee know.
