Team Meeting January 10

There will be a team meeting in Holbrook Palmer on Monday, Jan 10th at 6.00pm to roll out the season plan for 2011. So if you have questions or would like to hear about the plans for 2011, please come along. Tim has put a lot of work into planning this upcoming season, and it will present the opportunity to really challenge yourselves.


2011 Survey: Sonoma Wine Country Tour or Santa Barbara Camp?

As Tim and I are putting finishing touches to the calendar for next year, we would like some input on a few items. We are deciding between a swim, bike, run camp in Santa Barbara on April 8 - 10 OR a Wine Country (Sonoma) Bike Tour, with 50 - 100 mile rides each day on May 20 - 22.

If you have a preferred option, please send me (Mike) an email so we can get an idea of numbers.


Survey 2: Hawaii 70.3?

Can you also send me (Mike) an email if you are thinking of going to Hawaii 70.3, so we can get an indication of numbers for this race. This will be a scheduled team race for 2011.


Threshold Race Series

The season will also include the Threshold race series throughout the year (, and they have provided us with a discount code when signing up for races. Code is simple and easy to remember, it is "Sheeper"


PurplePatch Fitness

PurplePatch Fitness will be conducting a series of running clinics with the first being held on the weekend of Jan 22 - 23.


Donut King December 18

This weekend sees the challenge for the Donut King being held. This is the most fun you can ever have on a Sheeper ride. Following that, the Hawaii Ironman race is being broadcast on t.v., and as most of you know it was one of the most exciting mens finishes in years, with Aussies winning both the mens and womens crowns!


TOY Thanks

Finally, congratulation to our Triathletes of the Year, Mirella and Ian, and thanks to all of you for making it such an enjoyable evening. A special thanks must go to Sally and Joel for hosting us in their wonderful house.
