Club Update – it’s race week :-)

Hi Members. The STC Committee is wrapped to see the very first Sprint Distance Event for many years being held this weekend at Victoria Park Lake.   The team has worked hard to map a fantastic course which will offer an awesome experience for athletes and spectator alike with the causeway being operated under closed roads conditions, which is also a first for Shepp!!  The committee is working overtime on making this a premier event going forward.  The Telstra Store Shepparton has come on board in a major way and are our major race weekend sponsor.  We thank them for their contributions, they will be a strong presence over the weekend so get around them and make them feel welcome.   Entries are now open on the Shepparton Tri Club web page.  GET AROUND IT PEOPLE.  We encourage all members to participate.  This will be a key race for many clubs, as part of the rural race series.  We have our own club members in the hunt for a podium finish and taking out the rural series events for their age groups, let’s show these other clubs what we are made of a Sheppresent at our best.  Our race is the last race in the series – so the contest will be HOT to grab these points.  The race presentations will follow shortly after the event with the rural series presentations commencing at 1pm at the GV Hotel.  The GV Hotel has also come on board in a big way and are providing valuable sponsorship support for us.  They have put together an awesome $15 meal deal so come along and enjoy a well deserved post race feed, catch up, and drink with the hard working committee and members from the other regional clubs.  Families welcome.   As an unfortunate aside the club needs to advise members of a disappointing turn of events which has recently impacted the club and our coaching partner ETPA.  Both STC and ETPA have recently had to fend off significant backlash which has come from inadvertent claiming athletes through our social media marketing campaigns.  In an attempt to recognize Club Members participating at the recent Challenge Melbourne event we promote all STC members racing regardless of the coaching program they were under.  This was communicate via the ETPA facebook page which created significant angst and potential reputational and brand damage for all parties.  To negate this occurrence again into the future, communications regarding ETPA coached athletes and STC members will be done separately.  We apologies for the need for this to occur.  Our intent has always been to ensure positive reinforcement and recognition for all STC athlete performances.  If you find that your name does not appear on any facebook publications outside of the Shepparton Tri Club facebook page, this is not an error.  We are a professional club and this is an unintended consequence and necessary measure to maintain our reputation and the reputation of our partners which has unfortunately taken a hit through these actions.  We trust you all understand the position the club is now placed.  It is only the minority but it effects us all.   Regards   STC

CLUB UPDATE – FEBRUARY 2014

Welcome to the Shepparton Triathlon Club Update        9 February 2014

This edition includes:

  • From the Committee
  • Races & Events
  • What’s Going On
  • View From Behind
Hello and welcome to the first Club update sent from the new website. It’s taken a bit of getting used to the new way of adding stuff to the website and I apologises for not getting information out to all members on a more regular basis. From now on it is hoped we can provide information on club activities, member’s movements and all things considered triathlon!

From The Committee

  • Club Shed
The new shed at the south end of the lake is waiting final building approval. Before this happens the club is required to provide council with drainage plans showing how we are to discharge the storm water.  The engineer has completed the comps and this week will hopefully see the building approval being granted so we can demolish the existing shed. Currently most of our gear is in self storage which is costly and not very flexible
  • 70.3 Race
During the past week a number of telephone calls, emails and meetings have been had with the various players representing those involved with the new licence to run the race.  An announcement will hopefully be provided early this week on the outcomes of negotiations, once this has been completed the club will send an email to all members providing details on where the club is situated
  • Sunset Series
Unfortunately the 3rd race had to be postponed due to the extreme heat conditions, however Race 4 is on this Tuesday night and will be a great opportunity for those who have been taking it easy to blow some cobwebs out. If you don’t intend to race the club always needs vollies to help with the event so come on down. The committee will make a decision on the postponed 3rd race in the next week.
  • Rural Series – Shepparton Sprint Race
The inaugural Rural Series has started with great success and seeing as its only in its first year all signs are saying it will get bigger and better in future seasons However the big one – OURS – is coming up in a couple of weeks and we encourage all members to get stuck in and have a crack, or, come down and help out :) The race will be held at Vic Park Lake, along closed roads to Mooroopna and then a run around the lake, what a great location for it! Following on from the race will be presentations for our race as well as the series race winners so if you would like to join us for a light lunch let the club know via info@sheppartontriclub.com.au Committee: President     Stacey Cole V President  Jon Griffin Secretary    Hayley Collins Treasurer    Peter Guy Committee   Anthony Coote Darren Green Anthony Edwards Shane Bamford Paulette Simpson Leigh Simpson Megan Treacy That will do for now, read on friends…..

RACES AND EVENTS UPDATE

Due to the time taken to me to get up to speed with the website (computer illiterate), the regular updates have not been happening. This was a big hit last year, getting news from club members on what was happening and then letting all members know. As well as me chasing and harassing the odd member for news on races they were doing. I won’t dwell on the past events but we do know that we have a few members doing Geelong this weekend and there are still events to be had, hopefully I will get news from those events and post them onto the newsletters so we can all get inspired by those getting out there!

WHAT’S GOING ON

Club Training Sessions Members are in training for a number of races and a lot of you have taken advantage of the ETPA relationship to get you to the start line in prime condition (some still getting there!) If you are not on the WhatsApp app then I suggest you contact the club for details as it provides a platform to discuss training with the club’s members, you can always find a friend to train with. note: The training sessions that the club runs are available to all paid up members of the club. So if you want to join in on any of the club sessions, ie Monday am swim, Tuesday pm MT session, Thursday am run session then you are most welcome.  The coaches will be running certain sessions based on members programs for their event so those who are not training for any event as such, or are an a different program to the club ones, you are still welcome but you will need to join in on the session the coaches are running.

VIEW FROM BEHIND

This club is an amazing beast. I don’t know of any other club, and certainly any I have been involved with, that provides the level of support for its members that this one does. Think about it; the club puts on a series of mid week races, a Sunday sprint race as well as a 70.3 race for the benefit of the club. It provides discounts to members for various things, such as clothing, sponsor deals, social events and so on. It provides the opportunity for members to take part in organised training sessions at a heavily subsidised rate with a professional triathlon training partner, ETPA. It is building a new shed for the benefit of members and provides equipment for hire at very cheap rates There is more, but I’m hoping you get the picture.  This stuff doesn’t just happen; it comes about with a lot of hard work. This work is left up to a very few people on a committee which is passionate about the sport and providing the best for its members. While we don’t always get it right we are first and foremost there for you. For those who took up the discounted membership, thank you for volunteering at the events so far, for those who haven’t done so yet we have two or three events to go for you to help THM

Echuca Sprint Race

Don't forget that the second race of the Rural Series will be held this Saturday the 18th January. The Echuca triathlon is a great event and STC are a big supporter of the event. It's always a lot of fun with plenty of Sheppresenting happening and a sledge or two! So hope to see you all on Saturday afternoon in Echuca.
