End of January

Well that’s the first month of the year gone already!!!! I want to thank everybody for your continued support of the club. Its great to see so many people resubscribing or indeed subscribing for the first time. With so many members it would be great if you could take the time to let everyone know what you have planned this year. Whether you intend to focus on fitness, tackle your first triathlon or go long for the first time please let the club know. Encouragement from like minded people is a great motivator.

Whilst most of us are focusing on events much later in the year when the temperature is up around the double figure mark there is one member of the club who is already heading off on an amazing challenge.

From the Chair – Start of a new season

Hi all, I wanted to take this opportunity to let you all know what has been going on in the background with the club over the Christmas and New Year period. As you all know I have taken on the role as chairman for the club after Dave Neale decided to step down. I’m sure you will all join me in saying a massive thank you for all he did for the club and you can rest assured that he will still be around attending training and offering his knowledge during his legendary hill sessions. The club website is currently in transition and Alistair Doig has been working hard on the new site which we hope to see pushed out in the not too distant future. As this is being developed we have also introduced a new online payment system. If you are ready to join then click on the join now tab and this will redirect you. Please take time to fill in the membership questionnaire as this will aid us when it comes to developing the club training program. I would also like to remind you all that once you are a member of KLTC you are insured when it comes Read the Rest…
