Top honours in this weeks News go to Juhana Kirk for his brilliant 09:47:14 at Ironman Barcelona. Tough competition as that time earnt him 4th place amongst the flying Finns in his age group! Congratulations Juhana – well deserved rest ahead I should think?

Maybe a gentle stroll around the local countryside would be a good warm down? This weeks Oktoberfest features a 14km walk around Weir Wood starting and finishing at Java & Jazz in Forest Row. We will be meeting for coffee and cake from 9.00am before we set off at 9.30am. Top club swimmer John Gallagher who owns Java & Jazz has offered a 20% discount to those walking – so please come along and any well behaved dogs and children on leads will be welcomed! I'd suggest boots or off-road shoes as some parts will be muddy! Should take 3-3.5 hours so back in time to sample lunch as well! (Maybe bring some plastic bags to go over your boots or leave a spare pair at the start?)

Saturday 21st will be our Bike Maintenance & Kit Swap morning – learn or practice some simple repairs plus swop those unwanted items for someone else's! 9.00am in the Pavilion.

Club AGM is on Saturday 11th November with a free Breakfast Bap and tea/coffee for all who attend!

Finally, remember our brand new Awards Evening & Party Celebration takes place on Saturday 25th November and tickets can be purchased via the club website. Please support this new initiative for what promises to be a fun-filled evening - more details to follow from Partymeisters Tim and Cathy!
