Open – Nominations for Committee Members and Secretarial Position

Attention All Frogs (incl anyone intending to actively participate in the 2017/18 season, currently registered or not):

Nominations are now open for:

– Positions on the Management Committee.
– Secretary.

I know it seems very formal, but if Fitzroy Frogs is to establish and maintain long-term growth, we need to formalise a steering committee and build a professional approach to triathlon in our region. As such we are putting calling out to those of you that want to take a lead role (see attached document to nominate).

Call for Nominations – Management Committee

I know many of you are willing, but have been on too many committees to do it again. We will be calling on you to help the club eventually, but at this point we are looking for those of you that want to step up and take lead responsibility (you know who you are, you can feel it).

We are also putting out a special call to our younger entrepreneurial members that are enthused by the idea of being on a committee but not sure about your prospects (“I don’t know what to do.“). If this is you, I guarantee you will be given all the support and coaching you need to play an active and rewarding role in this committee. You are the future of our club. Please don’t let fear stand in the way of doing something that intrigues you. We can teach you everything you need to do the role except enthusiasm, you’ll have to bring that with you.

I look forward to hearing from some of you.

And please circulate this to any Frogs you know that haven’t discovered Facebook.

Thanks

Craig

Welcome Fitzroy Frogs Triathlon

Please be advised that following a request by the sub-committee of the Frenchville Frogs Triathlon Club, the Board of the Frenchville Sports Club have agreed to officially end the Frenchville Frogs Triathlon club.
I know some of you will be surprised, disappointed and perhaps confused by this turn of events, but I assure you that this move was not taken lightly.
On behalf of all CQ Triathletes, I wish to express my gratitude to the Frenchville Sports Club for their support over many years.
In the wake of this decision I can also announce that a new breed of frog that is stepping up to fill the void – welcome to the Fitzroy Frogs.
The basis of this new direction is that it is time for our participants to take the reins and become actively involved in the development and growth of triathlon in CQ. We all need to take ownership and renew our excitement for triathlon. With this in mind, the Fitzroy Frogs has affiliated with Triathlon Queensland and is now open for business.
The first objective will be to encourage membership and interest in the Fitzroy Frogs, closely followed with attention to the 2017/18 season agenda.
I trust that you will join with me in supporting the new club, which fully intends to retain the social and friendly aspects encouraged during our time as Frenchville Frogs, whilst also providing new and exciting opportunities for all that want to make a splash in triathlon.
Watch this space – more information will be arriving over the coming days and weeks.
Craig McCormack
