Last TT of the season on 28th Aug will be a fun fundraising event to recognise two of our club members, Annemarie Power and Sean Finn, on their great achievement of qualifying for Ironman Kona, this is the world championships of our sport!!!

On the night, you will guess your TT time and closest to that time will win a prize! Obviously no watches allowed!

Afterwards we will meet at the Elm tree for tea/coffee and sandwiches.

We will hold a short EGM, to vote in the proposed changes to the constitution, and vote in the position of Data protection officer.

There will also be a raffle for 2 wetsuits kindly sponsored by McCarthy Cycles (one male, one female-winners can call to the shop to pick out sizes)

Prizes for the TT league will also be given out on the night.

Hope to see you all there!

EGM/Club Constitution

The club committee recently decided to apply to the Revenue Commissioners for “tax exempt” status.  This decision was made to allow the club apply for a number of grants available to sports clubs.  In order to grant this “tax exempt” status the Revenue requires that certain clauses be inserted into the club constitution.  These clauses reference how the club conducts its financial affairs.  In order to insert these clauses into the constitution it will be necessary to have them approved by the members at an EGM.  We are proposing to hold this EGM prior to the presentation of prizes at the final TT on Tuesday 28th August at the Elm Tree.  We are also taking the opportunity of this EGM to add the post of Data Controller to the list of club officers as required by the recent GDPR legislation.  The amended constitution can be seen in this document.

Track Session Wednesday 15th August

Keeping the sequence, we are moving on to 800s again this week.  800m repetitions with 400m recovery jog.  Good progression last week on the 400s from earlier in the season and remarkable consistency across the full set, hopefully we can get a repeat for the 8s.  Weather will probably be a bit worse than we have been used to across this summer  but shouldn’t deter the serious athletes!  Meet at the usual time, 7:00pm on the Sonia O’Sullivan track in the UCC Grounds on the Mardyke.
