Summer News

Hi RCTC! So much is going on…

In early May, Micah Elkins landed on the podium with a 3rd place (Sprint) AG finish at the Lake Guntersville Triathlon Festival in Guntersville, Alabama!
Also in early May, we welcomed our newest member, Brad Hinson.

Next up, the Conklin boys completed a TYT triathlon in Tally…. so that means veteran Blease and rooky Callaway were on the course representing RCTC. Congrats to both, and to Callaway for officially becoming a triathlete!

In mid-May, Michael Strickland snagged some hardware at the BFAS Sprint Triathlon in Jax while representing RCTC… Master’s Champion and 5th overall!

A handful of Winged Warriors headed down to Crystal River on Memorial Day weekend for DRCSports Crystal River Sprint #1, where Jeff Drawdy raced for FREE (thanks to our friends at DRCSports!) and brought home 1st place Cydesdale hardware! Clayton brought home a 2nd place AG award, and Taylor Shiver and Lance Parker also put terrific races in the books with full cheering sections in tow. Lacey Harrison was there with her clan and suffered an unfortunate flat during the bike. She’s looking forward to her next opportunity to compete!

Tony Sheffield and Lance Parker both posted PR’s and brought home hardware at Loop the Lake 5K at Lake Blackshear last weekend.

Bowersville’s Billy Webb brought home a much-deserved 3rd place AG award at the Caine Halter YMCA Sprint last weekend. Woot! Woot!

I still have 1 unclaimed BRAND NEW, unworn piece of custom 2XU RCTC 2014 race gear: A SMALL Women’s Bike Jersey / $75. Message Renee if interested.

I also still have an armload of unclaimed tech tees which were FREE to members… But you gotta swing by and pick yours up. Pretty please. We’re having a baby in 8 weeks, if not sooner. Please get your tee before then!

We’ll be doing another RAFFLE this month for a FREE entry to:

Jax Tri Series Olympic & Sprint #2
Saturday, July 19 | Fernandina Beach, FL
(Thanks to DRC Sports!)

To get in on that drawing, please message Renee ASAP! As always, the rules are simple: 1. If you win it, you must race it, and 2. If you’ve already won a 2014 free race entry, you cannot be included in the drawing. My list of contenders includes:

Mike Rome
Wilhelms X 3
Angie Bruhl
Thompsons X 3
Taylor Shiver

UPDATE: Micah Elkins won the FREE entry to Jax #1, and Bill Wilhelm won (but had to decline) the FREE entry to Crystal River #2, so Lance (first alternate) is taking his slot.

Please let us know when you’re racing and share your results and photos, so we can cheer you on. Thanks, all!
