Wow, what a year it's been at Brighton Tri Club! At the end of January, Dave, Mal, Graeme and I sat down for the first time and agreed that we wanted to start a new Tri club in Brighton & Hove. We started slowly and informally to test the water. At the end of April we held our 'Official' launch party. We anticipated that we might have 30 people there, we had nearly 80! Very quickly after that things took off and we now have 2 running sessions, 2 swim sessions and various cycling sessions each week, a new committee, club kit, a website, Facebook page, Twitter account, online club shop and club forum, let alone the social events and club awards! As of 1st October, the club year renewed and we opened for a full year of membership. As of today, 31st December 2013, just about 11 months after that initial meeting in the pub, we have 99 members in the club - 3 of whom joined in the last 3 days! So, who will be the 100th member…..
It's been a wild year and a huge amount of work has been put in by all those involved. I'm not going to name names but you, and the club members, will know who you are. I'd just like to say 'thank you' for all the hard work and how very much I'm looking forward to 2014. Somehow we have created a club with a tremendous spirit, a hugely friendly atmosphere, some talented athletes and some fabulous training sessions. Awesome.
Happy New Year one and all
