SUNDAY RACE REPORT
It was definitely autumn weather for our return to club racing after BCU. A slightly smaller field contested our annual long course event. 57 people completed the event with Travis Shields coming in ahead of Isaiah Koopmans and Paul Herring. Kudos to Mick and Julie Darlow for turning up on their wedding anniversary. There was a little hiccup with loading the race results. There was a link provided for the long course. The link for the short course is being worked on and will be emailed as soon as possible.
All Money for bus and accommodation needs to be paid asap….please remember it is club champs, so wear your CLUB UNIFORM.

As of Sundays race we have 73 names down for the Forster Holiday Village which leaves us with 7 spare beds. Just a reminder the cost is $100 per person, which includes a bed on Friday and Saturday night, plus Pizza, salads, beer, wine soft drink on Saturday evening before we go to the presentation. There is an expectation that if you choose to stay at the Holiday village, you will be either competing or volunteering. If there’s a reason why someone you’re bringing can’t volunteer - please email me email@example.com - Transfer via direct deposit to Coffs Harbour Triathlon Club BSB 704-328 Account 197693 and it needed to be paid by 29/2/16. Leave your name as a reference so we know you have paid.
If anyone has any dietary needs for Saturday night could they please let Nicole know ASAP.
If you’re not staying at the Holiday Village - I suggest you book your accommodation early as there will be over 1000 competitors racing with lots more volunteers and spectators. You’re still welcome to join us for pizza etc before the presentation - but you will need to let Nicole know beforehand for catering purposes with a cost of $25 per head firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
Alternatively if you wish to race but want to come down for just the day and get back for the ocean swim on Sunday there will be a bus going down early Saturday morning. At this stage we have 5 names, so please let Nicole know ASAP so we can organise the bus. Further details in relation to departures and locations will be finalised once we have definite numbers.
THANKS FROM VILLAGE SPORTS
Village Sports would like to extend a huge thank you to all Coffs Harbour Tri Club members for their support of the bcu Coffs Tri. The event went off without a hitch and the feedback we have received from all involved has been extremely positive. An event of this scale would not be possible without the support of our local community, in particular the wonderful members of our club.
Thank you to all members who competed and volunteered over the weekend. Many of you were out in the sun on Saturday and returned to race on Sunday. Whatever your involvement, we are truly thankful.
Thanks to those of you who helped pack up on Sunday afternoon when a shower and sleep were probably all that you really wanted! It certainly made our job much easier having all that extra help.
A special thanks must go to previous club members, Dan Stein and Aimee Sutton who travelled down early from the Gold Coast to volunteer. We are blessed to be part of a club with such amazing members.
The date for the 2017 bcu Coffs Tri has been set for the 4th & 5th March so please lock it in.
And for those of you not going to Club Champs, come and join us at the Ocean Swims on Sunday 3rd April.
Thanks again from the Village Sports Team
Mick, Sinclair, Hadley & Alison
