Race 19 of 29

Race Report 17 January 2015

Another fantastic day at Twinnies Tri Club, the pool was a beautiful 28.1 deg courtesy of the run of hot hot weather, no wind on the bike or the run made for potentially great racing conditions, but it was still HOT and I over heard some members achieving PB’s on the Run leg!

Race Report 10 January 2015

With our Twinnies members slowly getting back into a normal routine after the holiday break, Saturday morning presented us with an early morning shower as competitors were setting their bikes up, it then stopped.

Thank you to Coast Cyclery for assisting with the repairs to the kids bikes that the club will donate to Blair Athol House.

Happy birthday to Ian Curnow.

New random draw system.  We will be purchasing one $100 voucher from each of our sponsors on a rotational basis.  One per week.  Next week will be Cannibal Clothing.  This will be the main prize each Saturday morning.  We will also give out the other random draws.

We feel this is a great way to get the members to go into the sponsors shops, if they have $100 to spend they may spend a little more.

Random Draw Winners this week
Travis Coleman, Zoe Taylor-West, Deb Anderson, Kerrie Turney, Scott Styman
