Leeds Castle Triathlon safety cover and club stand

Thank you to everyone who has offered to help. So far I have:
Saturday: Paul Hignell, Jon Willis, Tim Jones and Seth, Stewart Burt Wheadon, Geoff Licence
Sunday: Richard Caine, Paul Hignell, Jez Massy, William Norman and myself.
Please let me know if you are able to help and I have left you off the list. We desperately need more support! We could do with a few more people for each day. We need to be there for a briefing at 7am both days and I think the race will be over by 10am. You would be free to leave earlier than this as the swim in the moat is the first part of the race (as long as you park in the right place to get out.)
We also need a few people to man a stand for the morning to promote the club. You do not need to be a paddler for this, so if you don't feel up to paddling on the moat, this is a great way to get involved with this inspiring event.
Finally, we also need a few people for a swim recce on the evening of Thursday 22nd June at 7pm. Again, please let me know if you are available to help with this.
On race day there will be a marshal tent with refreshments and snacks which you will be welcome to help yourselves to. This will be the fourth time the club has supported the race and it is an excellent opportunity to show off what the club has to offer.

New Coaches - Wish them Luck

A hearty "good luck" to everyone doing their Level 1 coaching course at the Club this weekend.  Enjoy!

(If you're interested in becoming a coach, then speak to someone on the Committee or the Coaching Development Group.  Funding available).

Wild camp on the estuary

The legendary Estuary Barbecue & Camp is coming up in just a couple of weeks (June 30th)!  Suitable for almost everyone, this involves a paddle over to one of the islands on the estuary, building a driftwood fire and singing(*) the night away!  We need to leave The Strand at 6pm sharp this year to catch the tides.  Speak to Norman for details.

* singing optional.  Earplugs for sale, reasonable prices.
