Summer Training – Week 9

Weekly Update

The final week of the current training season is here and will be topped off by a few events at the weekend. Try a tri 2 took place over the weekend down at the leisure centre was very well received. We hope that a number of ye will be able to attend the final events this weekend before we take an official break in preparation for next years season!!!!

 

Saturday 9th September: Tri Leader Course

Tri Leader Course: starts at 9am in Nenagh Abbey Court hotel

To date we have 1 confirmed club member who is willing to attend this one day session for the club that was specifically organised in town so that no travelling time was needed. As a club with both Senior and Junior elements and a small membership pool it is important that we have a number of members who have this qualification to cover the club for Indemnity and insurance purposes.

If there is anyone else who is available to take part on this could you let a member of the committee know as soon as possible so that this course will be able to go ahead.

Saturday 2nd September: Try a tri 2

 

Around 40 people were up bright and early on Saturday morning for the second Try a tri offering. Weather conditions were almost ideal, apart from a bit of a headwind on the way out on the bike but no complaints were made on that one! Well done to all who took part and overall the event was very well received. As ever this event could not have taken place without the help of the few club members who were available on the day to marshal and help with the smooth running of the event. The “try a tri” format is an essential element for development of both the junior and senior clubs and is a starting point for many potential members so we thank all who were able to make this event possible and will again be looking to arrange similar events in the future.

 

Saturday 9th September: End of Year Swim

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

We are expecting around 10-15 swimmers at this +/- IronMan Barcelona candidates?? 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 back .

If anyone is not intending taking part in the swim but is willing to help out we have a spare kayak that requires a Kayak Captain to provide cover for the swimmers…..let a committee member know and come down and join in with us.

Saturday 9th September: Triathlon Club AGM

End of Year AGM: starts at 8pm: venue Una Powells

Following the swim we will be having our annual AGM. This year we will be having the AGM back in town in Una Powells in order to make it easier for members not taking part in the swim to attend.

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 2018 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!!!!!

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.
