Bring on the 2014 Tri season with H-CTC! Chris Crump from Sun & Ski Sports was at the meeting to talk about our 3rd year of sponsorship. Here are some great benefits we get as club members: FREE basic bike maintenance, 15% off full price parts and cycling apparel and35% off bike labor costs, 10% off full-price purchases the rest of the store. Remember to show your H-CTC membership card.
Remember to renew your membership via racereach.com, also family members join for free and get all benefits.
H-CTC will be sponsoring three events this year: Our Boys 5K/10K, Hawthorne’s Kids Tri Series out of HFFA and Tri the Creek Kids Tri.
This year H-CTC would love a high number of volunteers at select races, as well as have a tent at each of these events so that we can promote the club. Keep in mind there are a lot of times to serve (packet pick-up, early morning set up, etc.) Here’s the tentative schedule: Carolina Half & International – May 4, HFFA Kids Tri – June 22, Lake Norman Sprint – August 23 and Tri the Creek Kids Tri – September 14.
JOIN a Huntersville Tri relay TEAM! If you are interested as an individual or have a team put together let us know via website, e-mail or racereach. H-CTC will pay for as many teams as we can put together! You must wear H-CTC uniform or t-shirt.
Team uniforms went into production on February 4th, delivery date is March 7-10th. A second round of ordering will go live soon. With paid membership, you will get a $50 discount off $100, if ordered by March 31st. Team swag should be out around the end of March, too.
H-CTC members love to workout together! Gerry will start a Thursday 6pm ride out of Clarke Creek pool parking lot in Highland Creek. Brick workouts will start soon. Roger will also post some mountain bike/run bricks, if anyone is interested. Remember to post your workouts and your races on racereach.com. For USAT insurance coverage on club workouts, we must have 3 members present, needs to be on club calendar and an officer must sign off on it.
Anyone interested in being the Bike Director? If so, contact Scott Glover. H-CTC is trying to put together A and B rides, too. Bill will send out maps with routes the groups have been riding and post them on the website for everyone.
We are working with Kathy Goody for the youth clinics that are generally before the HFFA Hawthorne Kids Tris. H-CTC will sponsor kids from our group. Perfect for kids wanting to start/try kids triathlons.
Next meeting will be Monday, April 7th.
