Sprint Tri – Thursday Lake Swims – BARTT #9 – Kit Sales – Annual Awards Dinner – Sunday Rides

Firstly, I just wanted to say a big thank you to Sarah for organising what I am sure everyone involved will agree was a fantastic Club Relay Race last weekend! Thank you also to the marshals and all who took part,for making it such a great morning.

Sprint Tri
With just over a week to go until our own Sprint Tri on Bank Holiday Monday we are doing well with entries but we’d love to sell out again – so please do continue to mention it to anyone that might be interested!

Race entry here: https://oxfordtri.co.uk/oxfordtri-sprint-triathlon.  There are posts to share from our Facebook page, a Facebook Event, and PDF posters available as well.  If you are going, please click going on the Facebook event as that activity really helps boost it up people's newsfeeds.  Thank you :)
 
We could still do with a few more volunteers to help run the event safely so if you’re around and not racing then please try and sign up to volunteer. You’ll get a coffee and cake, a club champs point and I am sure there is an odd beer or two floating around from last weekend! Volunteer sign-up here https://oxfordtri.co.uk/events/oxford-tri-sprint-race-volunteering-4
 
Chris will also be running a cake and coffee stand again this year, so all cake donations greatly appreciated! To avoid a glut of Lemon Drizzle or Chocolate Brownies it would be great if you could liaise with Chris about any cake donations – kit [at] oxfordtri [dot] co [dot] uk" rel="noopener noreferrer" target="_blank" data-auth="NotApplicable">kit [at] oxfordtri [dot] co [dot] uk
 
Thursday Lake Swims
Due to decreasing numbers, last night was the last Thursday open water session of the season.
Saturdays will remain open for now unless numbers decrease, but we do need to have safety in place. 
If you are a regular swimmer and haven’t yet taken a turn on safety please sign up on the calendar.
 
BaRTT # 9
Entry is now open for BARTT #9. This is the final regular BARTT of the season and your last chance to earn points for the championship which is looking close in some of the categories! You can see the current standings here - https://oxfordtri.co.uk/bartt-results-2018. The next BARTT in a fortnight's time will be the handicap final which you need to have taken part in a regular BARTT to qualify for, so this will be your last chance!  Entry here: https://oxfordtri.co.uk/events/bartt-9-bike-and-run-time-trial-3
We also need a couple of timekeepers - https://oxfordtri.co.uk/events/bartt-volunteering-20

Sat 14:00-17:00
Sun 09:00 – 12.00 approx
