Guest speakers are also being lined up, there might even be a trip to the pub! An entry form, final prices and more details will appear on the website in the coming days. Membership Belpark membership has gone live on the Triathlon Ireland website. At €20 we have the lowest membership costs in the country and all the money collected goes back to supporting club activities. As well as being members of the club, all members must take out some form of TI membership this year to be insured for training sessions. It’s vital that everyone gets on board with this one as without it we won’t be able to allow people come on training sessions. Associate membership of TI starts at €18 and If you plan to race more than three times in 2012 go for an Annual Race Licence (€53) – this will cover you for all Belpark training sessions and for all TI-sanctioned races. A full list of membership options and the benefits of membership can he found here. New Members A series of bike rides for new members and beginners will start next Saturday February 4th. Meet-up at the Clubhouse in Rathfarnham village at 9:30am. Brian Crinion will take the first spin, which should proceed at a reasonable pace. The next beginners spin will be lead by Stephen Early on February 18th. Meet and Greet
A ‘meet and greet’ evening for all members will be held on the evening of February 18th in the clubhouse. This is a chance to catch up with people you haven’t met in a while and for new-comers to get some advice on triathlon from seasoned vets. Everyone is encouraged to come along for a while and have a cup of tea (and cake!).
