A great mornings entertainment @ Horsted Keynes Tri and special thanks to Paul Hedger and all his team for putting on such a fun event. The cold early morning turned into a glorious early autumn and it was positively warm by the time I finished! Noel missed out on top spot by incurring a 2:00 minute “course infringement” penalty – should have gone to Specsavers! Mark McDonald was 5th overall ahead of Pete Moles who got himself in a chick-sandwich between the first place lady and Emily in 8th. Other Miles’s and various McKechnie offspring followed before yours truly crossed the line – 2nd in my age group (although you don’t need to know the total number!)

More fun to be had this weekend with the Oktoberfest Treasure Run on Saturday and the 2nd Sunday Club Bike Ride the following morning. For the run we’ll have a briefing at 8.45am, start at 9.00 and you should be finished inside an hour – so long as you get the right clues right! Why not share the brainwork and try it as a team? As for the bike ride, 8.15am meet at kings and set off at 8.30 and back around 10.30am.

Saturday swim sessions during October follow a pattern and to get the most out of the coaching please can we ask you to turn up for the correct time slot? The swim types at each session switch each week so you won’t always be getting in early nor having a lie in! So, this week it’s Group A @ 6.30am – that’s Bambinos and Overgliders and then Group B (Arnies, Kicktastics, Swingers and Smoothies) @ 7.25am. It's on the website, for logged in users, under Members Area / General Info / Oktoberfest / Swim Type Guides, or via this link:

If your names not on the list it doesn’t mean you’re not coming in – but more that the coaches haven’t assessed you yet! Get in the water and show them your stuff!

As previously mentioned, those who marshalled at EG 10k have the opportunity to be included in a draw for places at the 30th EG Tri on 10th May 2015 – but please let us know if you actually do want to take place so we don’t put names in the hat that don’t want to be there – we don’t want a Goblet of Fire thing! Please mail me @

Finally, a reminder of the Charity Quiz night on Wed 22nd Oct – confirm attendance to Richard Cooney before the 20th please. Plus, Karen Mycock is wrangling volunteers to assist with the EG Aquathon on Sun 26th Oct – so names in please?

That’s all, train safe
Big Dave
