Didn’t we have a lovely time the day we went to Southwater?
Great performances from every single person who took part both in the race and as spectators at this year’s Relays. Fastest team on the day was Zippy George and Bungle (aka Chris Welch, Mark McDonald and Noel Miles) although it was 2 men and a Goat (Tim Coogan, Rich Traynor and Kelly Jarvis) who got 2nd place in the Mixed Open just ahead of the EG Rockets (Martin Darlison, Fran Davis and Richard Smith) who took 3rd. Some great battles throughout the day with lots of vocal support provided for all! There were also masses of cakes provided by Sam, Helen and Cathryn – delicious and not nearly as messy as Fran’s porridge!
Loads of photos on Facebook and hopefully someone will transfer them onto the club site as a permanent reminder – I’m sure Sam will want that particular shot saved for posterity? Great to see Mr Chairman there offering encouragement and young Murray Miles getting a first taste of tri action – I’m betting he’ll be racing before Rich ever does again?
Support for the East Grinstead 10k on Sun 21st September is still required - contact Tim Best to volunteer your time – email@example.com and don’t forget that everyone who helps out gets the chance to be in the draw for places at the 30th East Grinstead Triathlon in May 2015!
Val McLaren writes; on Sunday 14th September I will be taking part in the Dart 10K swim, I have trained very hard and put in many miles of open water swimming, preparing for the event, I decided to raise money for Sussex air ambulance, because they survive solely on donations. If anyone would like to donate just go to the link, many thanks - http://www.justgiving.com/Valerie-McLaren.
Finally for this week, I did receive a few ideas and suggestions for Oktoberfest however I perhaps didn’t make it clear that the activities have to be morally acceptable and physically possible – so that’s quite enough from you Mike Sutton!
Train safe (if at all)
