News: 19th April 2015

Hope those who attended the Velodrome session this morning all had fun and learnt lots from the experience.   Thanks Sam for taking the time to organise it all. Great to see so many members out on their bikes yesterday – must be the most yet for this year.  Great news.  Look forward to seeing you all again next Saturday.

EGM

The Committee are calling an EGM for members to attend on Monday, 27th April at 8pm at the swimming pool.  The meeting is being called to agree for a slight change in the Club’s constitution which will be the Committee members will be up for re-election in October of each year rather than May, so that it is at the end of the triathlon season rather than at the beginning.  It is felt by the present Committee that this will make it easier for future in coming Committees.

Please can you make every effort to attend.  It will be no more than 30 minutes.  Information will follow in due course.

Change to Swimming Sessions

You will now be asked to sign in and pay as you go in rather than as you leave.  Please make sure that you do this with the coach.  This will start as from tomorrow.

Tri Farm Open Water swimming

Tri Farm is opening next weekend.  It is £7 per swim, there is no reduction for club members this year however Coach Pete is looking at organising sessions for a minimum of 12 people which will cost £5.  Watch this space for details.

Training

Monday Night Swims

At Braintree Swimming Pool, 9PM on Monday night, please arrive early if you can. For new members, this is a great chance to meet existing members and ask any questions. All abilities welcome. £3 for members, £6 for non-members.

Track sessions – Wednesdays at Tabor School, Panfield Lane, Braintree, CM7 1FF

The track sessions are continuing on Wednesday evenings.  They are on a pay and ‘play’ basis.  Pay at the reception when you arrive. Session starts at 8pm so please meet in the foyer for 7.50pm.  Please keep an eye out on Facebook for any updates.

Friday Night Technical Swim Sessions

There is space available for Fridays in May.   These are really useful sessions for those who want to concentrate on their technique as they are almost 121 and at £3 it’s a bargain!  You can have as many or as few sessions as you would like.  The slots are either 8 – 9pm or 9 – 10pm.

Email Steve Powell if you’re interested in getting some intensive coaching.

Saturday Bike Rides
