Hi everyone! We have lots to tell you about, so please read carefully!
We have a great Cordele BBQ planned for August 10 at member Rick Moss’s lake place. Please THANK Rick+JoAnne for opening their home to us all! If you’re planning to attend, please RSVP to the Facebook event and let us know how many people are in your party. If you’re not on Facebook, an email to Renee is fine. All event details can be seen here. Please click on the “CORDELE BBQ” event on the Calendar, and the info will pop up. This is also on the FB event page. I’ll continue to update the details in both locations, so please check back as it gets closer. YOU MUST RSVP by JULY 31.
Big thanks to our friends at Science of Speed and Sunshine Cycles, and to Jenn Bendewish (Herbalife) for contributing some great giveaways for the KIDS Clinic that took place on Saturday. And THANK YOU to our member-volunteers who came out to help! That’s Melissa T, Taylor, Nancy H, Coach Jill, Jennifer, and Lance. Clayton and I appreciate each of you!
Congrats to the Wilhelm boys for competing in the Tally Youth Tri this morning. I know Conley already clinched a first place AG finish! And thanks to Jenn and Jill for volunteering to help our friends this morning at the Tally Youth Tri Series. You make us proud, too!
Congrats to Chad, Beverly and Lori for competing in the Swamp Forest Trail Run (4.5 Miles) yesterday. Chad was 16th overall! Lori was 4th female and 31st overall! And Beverly was 9th female, 47th overall! We’re proud of you three and all your combined blisters, too. You can snoop at the results here.
Marty’s been training his tail off and logged a 105-mile ride last weekend. You can nose-around in his stats here.
Billy Webb of Bowersville is racing the Mistletoe Tri in Appling on Saturday. GOOD LUCK, BILLY!
If you missed the news, we welcomed a 54th member this week. It’s Daphne Frasch— a competitive swimmer since age 8, she ran cross country and track in high school, and triathlon is on her bucket list. She’s kicking off her multisport adventure as the SWIM LEG in our ladies relay (with Melody Gunter + Susan Bennett) at Georgia Veterans in Cordele. Please welcome Daphne!
Jenn Bendewish (Herbalife) decided to give away a FREE entry to the GA Veteran’s Sprint Tri, and the winner was NANCY HIERS! Congrats, Nancy, and thanks, Jenn!!!
Here’s a race to consider: September 14th at Myrtlewood Plantation. 6K trail run to benefit the McClendon Foundation in honor of Blake McClendon, who was killed in Afghanistan. Deets here!
Totally aside, if an RCTC member ran by Kathy’s downtown and mistakenly picked up a 3T shirt that was supposed to go to Alison Parker, please let us know ASAP.
