As a follow up to last Saturday nights season wrap up attached are the placegetters in the our Queens Head Hotel tri series and the Tri South club series.
Every Tri South member must now put down their phones stand up from the couch and clap for our age category club champions who have shown consistent performance throughout the season. 👏👏👏
Good to see some new names showing in the results, but we could do with some Junior girls joining us at races as number were light in our club series.🏊‍♀️🚴‍♀️👏🏃‍♀️
Also worthy of a raised glass are our club triathletes of the year Danika Bumford and Stephen Morahan. Enjoy your success; mind you it could be any one of us next season as the count is reset.
Right, to achieve this there is training to be done tomorrow, put the ice cream down and get to bed.😂

Another reason to wear a helmet.
Recently I was walking home from the shops and a pine cone dropped directly in front of me. I was not walking anywhere near a pine tree so I looked up and there was a cockatoo less than two metres above me looking at me with that cheeky grin they have and you can imagine what he might have been thinking. This led me to remember a few weeks ago when I was riding the ‘Commando’ loop following Peter McKenna with the Try A Tri group. I think I was last in the group at the time and a pine cone dropped not far in front of my bike, - from a pine tree this time. Another five seconds or so and I would have been thankful for my helmet.
So that is one more reason to wear a good helmet but now I have two more. I spotted a new helmet in MyRide recently and decided I had to have it because of the inbuilt battery and flashing lights at the rear. Those lights give car drivers yet another opportunity to see me and wake up enough to not run into me. Good value I reckon, but there’s more. I can do a hands-free answer of my phone while I am riding with this helmet and that has been handy several times now. There are a couple of other features on the helmet but I don’t use them so I am not going to tell you anything about them.
Just in case you didn’t read my post several months ago, about trading in my used helmet for a new MIPS technology helmet, you can still do it at MyRide in Sandy Bay. That particular helmet does not have the lights and hands-free phone but it could save your life or at least a nasty bump on the head from a pine cone.

A tremendous turn out for the Tri South season wrap up Queens Head Hotel last night was the cherry on the sponge cake that was the 2018-19 season.
Great to see 65 + members, family and friends enjoy a relaxed meal at the pub and nice to have long term sponsors Wayne from My Ride Hobart with Kim & Jenny from The Running Edge enjoy a plate of scallops and a prami the size of chickenopolous.
Congratulations to our age group winners and place getters in both our Queens Head tri series & our Tri South club series.
All interest was in the draw of the mega cool spot prizes on offer, with the Tacx flux smart trainer going to Ivan Davis, the Orca Sonar wetsuit won by Val Barons, The female tri suit won by Sheila Barrett, the male suit went home with Simon Direen and the Island Block & Paving voucher going to the garden of Jo Edmondson.
The committee also thanked non committee 'helpers', Mike Lavender for race results co-ordination, Jo Cook for Website updating, Andrew 'AZ' Zielinski for race sanctioning and my favourite Karon Aiken for race photos & facebook posting.
Our Triathlete of the year went to...............Female: Danika Bumford and Male: Stephen Morahan (you have a trophy to collect). These results were based on consistent results across the season - congratulations.
That's it for the 18-19 season, thank you for all our sponsors who contributed to the club - Clennett's Mitre 10 for the duathlon series, Tassal Tasmanian Salmon for the Xtri, Greenbanks Industrial for the aquathlon and of course Queens Head Hotel for the triathlon series.
Also Mr Blake from Tassie 4x4, Island Block & Paving, The Running Edge, My Ride Hobart and Lauds - Plant-based foods. Your help is invaluable.
Keep a lookout on this facebook page for news on next seasons race calendar and your TA members renewal goodies bag.👏👏👏

Really tough swim. After the first few athletes came in, the conditions changed and started pulling the athletes out to sea. Matt had the most amazing paddler that helped keep him back on the right path.
