The Committee
Date for the Diary The Club AGM: Tuesday 3rd October - The Crown & Thistle, 18 Bridge St, Abingdon, OX14 3HS Next month is our Annual General Meeting, giving you the chance to have your say on how the club is run; reviewing the last 12 months and allowing you the opportunity to shape how the next 12 months will look. Over the next few weeks there will be a quick overview of the committee and their individual roles within this weekly newsletter. We change the Chair Person every year and will also be looking to see if anyone is keen on taking part on the Committee. So keep an eye on this slot over the coming weeks and you can understand what goes on behind the scenes to ensure our Club remains the friendly and fun place that it is! Bring a friend for free Got a friend who just needs a little nudge to come along to training? Heard someone talking about entering a triathlon but you know they could do with some training buddies? Bring them along to any of our sessions to try. We're more than happy for people to come along and try a couple of sessions before they decide to join, so forward this email onto them and let's encourage more people into the world of triathlon :) Strava Club
Did you know we had a club group on Strava? By joining the group, you enter the leaderboard as to who is completed what hours of training that week - don't worry, your privacy settings will determine what everyone can see, but the Strava group totals are uploaded to our website so people can see how much we are all training. Don't be fooled though, the person with the most training hours doesn't necessarily equate to the person who wins everything! Join the Strava group today.
