Twinnines Tri Report 25 February 2012
With torrential rain overnight abating about 5am, today’s conditions were anything but perfect with 40 hardly souls turning up and went through their paces; fortunately the moisture content was limited to perspiration with very little precipitation and a little breeze encountered along Darlington Drive.
Congratulations to Guy Davoren on completing 300 club races- well done
Thanks to Julie Bloor for putting together today’s breakfast, with the numbers down, she decided to scale it back, another breakfast- the last for the season will be held in 2 weeks- so if you’re not there you’ll miss out.
Random Draw Winners:
Scott Styman, Joe Mollica, Con Vayanos, George Saunders
Following next week’s race (3rd March) at 08:15am the Tri Club will be holding the AGM. Nominations have been received for all positions
A big congratulation goes out to all the Twinnnes members that competed in the Kingscliff Tri, and particularly for those that made it to the podium. Also it was great to see so many club members helping out on the marshalling, one Twinnies competitor said it was great to see and hear the support of Twinnies people out on the course.

With Club Champs looming, Doug as usual has stopped placing the weekly point score list up, so if you think you’re in the ‘running’ go your hardest, you’ll never know, how close you were to winning if you don’t have a go- all will be revealed at the Presentation.
A list has been placed at the sign on table for those of you interested in competing in the club champs. For those new members, there are three races on 17th March. 1st One for those that just want to have a normal hit out, 2nd For competitive females, 3rd for competitive males. Same cost applies. For the competitive races, everyone in your rac starts at the same time. Police (the good guys) will be on duty at the traffic lights to ensure no red lights to hinder possibly your best bike splits.
Our Presentation will be at Twin Towns Services Club on 17th March. Tickets are on sale and available from Julie Bloor, if you intend going please let her know so that catering can be arranged. No tickets sales at the door.
And next Saturday when your racing, spare a thought for Joe Kelly, competing in the New Zealand Iron Man. Good Luck
