WELCOME TO THE 2014/2015 TRIATHLON SEASON
Welcome everyone to the first newsletter from the new Shepparton Triathlon Club Committee.
I would like to introduce myself. My name is Fiona Ransom and I have had the privilege of being elected as your Club President for the 2014/2015 season.
First and foremost, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the tireless efforts and work put in by the 2013/2014 Committee, of whom many had put in over a decade of their time to see the club prosper and grow where it is today. I would also like to welcome the incoming committee which consists of a mix of old and new faces. Your Committee for 2014/2014 season are:
Fiona Ransom President
Simone Cain Vice President
Paulette Simpson Secretary
Darren Green Treasurer
With the club not having the task of running a big race in 2014/2015 doesn’t mean that STC hasn’t got a big year planned. Stay tuned as we will keep you all up to date on the plans a head and we will be looking to all of you, the members of the club, to help shape a great season where we can focus on the club, our members and the sport we all love.
Your membership is important to us and over the course of the next few weeks, some important decisions, particularly around compulsory affiliation with Triathlon Victoria will have to be made. As a first task for the committee to undertake, we believe it’s vitally important that all current and future members have the opportunity to hear about the benefits and limitations of this potential change and as such, we have organised a bus for all members to hear Triathlon Victoria present their case alongside Echuca Moama Triathlon club on the 9th July (see below details). I hope you can join me.
Just a little about myself. I have been a member with STC since 2011 when I was starting out as a triathlete, joining in many of the local training sessions and was coached by the then club coach. Since then, I have notched up several 70.3 and IM distance races, more than anything though, I love training with people and coaching those who were where I was only a short time ago.
I look forward to taking the journey with you in the coming twelve months, swimming alongside you in the pool, riding and running with you, but most of all having fun along the way.
MEET WITH TRIATHLON VICTORIA
We invite you to meet and listen to Triathlon Victoria as they discuss the benefits to STC Club members around the introduction of compulsory Triathlon Victoria affiliation. This will be a balanced conversation presented by a local club (Echuca Moama) and Triathlon Victoria on the benefits to members and clubs of being affiliated and not being affiliated with Triathlon Victoria. There will be the opportunity to ask questions to ensure you fully understand the impact to yourself and the club in this decision, so don’t be afraid to ask.
A bus has been organised by the club, we hope you can join us. This will also present an opportunity to socialise with fellow member of the club.
When: Wednesday July 9th
Bus Depart Time: 5.15pm for a 5.30pm departure (behind Council offices)
Return: Post meeting (approx. 10pm)
Where: The American Hotel, 249 Hare Street, Echuca
Please confirm your attendance by emailing the club back at: firstname.lastname@example.org

It is vitally important that members feel as though they are involved and have a voice within the club, therefore throughout the season meetings will be opened up to all the membership base where you will be welcomed along to participate in our committee meetings, provide your feedback, socialise and generally see and be involved in what happens behind the scenes of the running of the club. Dates and locations will be posted prior to the members meetings.
PROGRESS OF THE SHED
If you have walked around the lake recently, you may have noticed our shed has been dismantled in preparation for a new shed to be built in the coming month. Shortly electrical work will commence with further works to follow, with our new storage facility being ready to use for the coming 2014/2015 season.
With the colder weather it still feels like Tri Season is so far off, but it’s not really. Details will follow regarding our season launch however; Save the Date of September 21st 2014 .
Don’t forget to keep a close watch out on the club website for regular updates or if you have any queries, hit “reply” to this email and we will endeavor to assist as best we can.
