Greetings from the Sux Tri Club Board of Directors!!! I hope you are staying active, staying healthy and most importantly staying injury free during these fine winter months…. The month of April really kicks off the outdoor triathlon season with Brookings, then in May many of us will be in Sioux Center at the Siouxperman Triathlon! Our destination race for the 2015 season will be the Legend Triathlon in Lawrence, Kansas on 6/7/15 where you can pick your distance from the Sprint to the 100 mile distance. Guidelines for our 2015 races series will be updated soon. This is a fun way to compete against other members throughout the race season. Competing in local triathlons will earn you bonus points.
The 2015 annual membership fee will be of $25 will be due in March. This membership fee is designed to pay for the expected operating expenses of the club including insurance, legal/accounting services, memberships, and to start building a fund to help with future expenses. You also receive discounts from local / national businesses such as Peak Performance, Albrecht Cycle and Xterra. Included with your annual membership will be the weekly (sometimes more often) email blasts from our club. Hopefully over the last several months you have received these emails and find value in the information contained. We are focused on offering an increase in resources, training tips, clinics, and group workouts with our members. Some of you have been able to participate in the swim clinics offered at the YMCA this winter and others really enjoy the Saturday Brick workouts too! In the summer months we will continue to offer our open water swims at McCook Lake along with Sunday morning workouts. We are committed to offering more options for group activities as Mother Nature blesses us with some warmer weather soon.
We are working on sweatshirts for the 2015 season. We do have limited inventory of red and green dry-fit t-shirts. If you are interested in ordering a club t-shirt, please contact Joel Greve at email@example.com.
