Masters Swimming
We have come up with a six practices per week schedule that will run  10 week sessions at a cost of $125 for member of DSFC and $175 for non-members. Registration information is attached with details. The Masters program is open to people of all abilities.

DSFC Resolution Classic 5K
The Tri-Dawgs will be hosting the 4th annual race January 1, 2013 at 1:00 PM.  Please encourage your family and friends to join us for a great time with loads of amenities. You can get race details and sign up here on Piranha's website. The race will benefit the Tri-Dawgs and the Mike Clark Legacy Foundation which is affiliated with the Boys and Girls Club. A flyer with details is attached. Please share with any other running clubs or groups you are affiliated with. Thanks

Silent Auction
In conjunction with the 5K we will be having a silent auction. We are approaching our sponsors for donations but I would also like to reach out to the Tri-Dawgs as well. If anyone works at or has an affiliation with someone that would be willing to donate something for the auction, please contact me. Our goal is to have 10-12 items. Don't forget this benefits the Tri-Dawgs and the Mike Clark Legacy Foundation. A flyer is attached is you need that.

The deadline for ordering a team uniform for the 2013 season is December 20th.
Email Diane with your order today!  After the deadline, you will receive a confirmation message with your total and Carrie's address for mailing the check.
Trisuits are $100, shorts are $50, women's tops are $40 and men's tops are $50. Besides the fact that our uniforms look and feel awesome and identify you as a Tri-Dawg, they are less expensive than buying off the rack! Being a Tri-Dawg requires no annual membership dues; all we ask is that you purchase a uniform & race as a Tri-Dawg. And this is your only opportunity to order for the 2013 season!  Here is the sizing chart. The sizing on these uniforms runs true, so if you already know what size you generally wear in triathlon gear, stick with that! For trisuits, it is suggested that you order based on your shirt size, if shirt & shorts are different sizes.

Pocono 70.3

Flip Turns
Periodically someone will ask me about flip turns. We don't spend what little pool time we have on this but this doesn't mean you can't work on this yourself. First search YouTube for video or watch this video then get in the pool have some fun with it. It's not a skill you need for open water swimming but it's one that can make you look good in the pool.

Weight Gain

Here is a good website for triathletes. Our club has been added to their database.

Have a great week.
