April Monthly Update

View the full email here.

Don’t miss out on our upcoming club events this month!  And this weekend, come cheer on your favorite pros and fellow TriClubers at Ironman 70.3 Oceanside on Saturday, April 6. We will have a TCSD tent set-up at the TriClub Village located on The Strand this year, just south of Surfrider Way (see map below). Then be sure to stop by our April Club Meetingon Sunday, April 7 to meet one of the best triathletes in the sport, and hopefully Ironman 70.3 Oceanside winner, Daniela Ryf!

Also, don’t forget that Spring Sprint Triathlon is right around the corner and we need volunteers to help staff our expo booth on Saturday, May 4 and volunteer as swim buddies on Sunday, May 5. We are providing swim buddies for both the adult and kids races, so if you’re not racing, please consider giving back to those just starting the wonderful sport of triathlon. Feel free to e-mail Tom Washington, our swim buddy coordinator, at crimelabtom@yahoo.com if you have any questions.

As a Swim Buddy, we are there to provide moral support for nervous swimmers. We are not lifeguards. We swim along side swimmers to let them know someone is watching them. You don’t need to be fast, just confident in the water and encouraging to people who need it. This is a great way to give back to the triathlon community! –Tom Washington
