Emu Park – Event #1 of the 2018/19 Season

 The 2018/19 season has begun

Not the biggest attendance but the smiles of achievement were not diminished. And what a fantastic morning for Tri.

To all, but especially our new starters, I trust you enjoyed your morning and have late September in the back of your mind for a return hit-out (date to be confirmed).

I was glad to hear so many positives from the morning, which reminded me why we do this and has blown out the winter cobwebs for what is going to be an enjoyable season.

The newcomers are a welcome addition to the club, it was great to see familiar faces (many who have lost nothing over the off season) and “What about those kids? One of them floated past me as I was going hammer and tongs in the swim!

The ocean was great, the bike course is a treat and the run enjoyable; but most exceptional of all was the company.

Thank you to our participants, their support crew and our helpers – nice work all round.

See you next month.

Welcome to the 2018/19 Tri Season

Some of the Frogs that Helped out at the U12 Duathlon in Quay St.

Triathlon is back on the calendar and Fitzroy Frogs is keen to keep forging forwards and giving CQ some fun stuff to do.

Local club activities will again centre on Emu Park with a target of 4 events plus the Australia Day swim and Tannum Sands, which we will visit twice – it is always great to catch some time at Tannum.

We have also announced an October event at Great Keppel Island, which is already taking bookings and will be a great weekend. Have a look at the GKI event page, chat to your friends and get to Keppel for some swimming, running and random fun on a tropical island.

We are also investigating a “Dirty-tri” at Mt Morgan dam in April. If you have never visited Dam No7, you are in for a pleasant surprise. What’s a “Dirty-tri”? – dam swim, mountain bikes and trail running. Stay tuned, we’re working on this one but it’s well worth the effort.

Kids, kids, kids – wherever possible we will include something in our event program for the kids. What we do need however is a few mums and dads to drive the cause and tell us what they want. Aquathlons are relatively easy to put together so if there is a demand, lets do it. Junior tri events are a little more difficult to arrange, but the club is keen, so please speak up.

And we have to get one or two under 12 duathlons into our calendar. The smiles on the little faces are priceless.

Finally, we are open to your comments, ideas and support. At the end of the day, this is not about us as individuals, its about creating opportunities within our community where we can all share and enjoy what our sport and beautiful environment have to offer. We all have a part to play.

Here’s to a happy and successful season.
