First Annual Club Party
Our first annual club party will be Saturday November 2 at 6:00 at the DSFC Pike Creek location. The address is 4905 Mermaid Boulevard 19808. Come out and celebrate our club championship! You will also have an opportunity to order uniforms that night. And Lenny Rogers will be putting together one of his renown slide shows of the team throughout the year. Please send him pics to include at
We hope everyone will be able to come out and celebrate a very fun and successful season! We've grown so much this year, and it will be a great chance to meet some of your teammates that you didn't even know you had! The signup page is the same as every tailgate. Pick a food category and pencil in a description of what you'd like to bring. .  BUT this time, you'll see uniform sizes listed, too.  Here's the deal ...  If you have a uniform and you are willing to let others try it on for size, choose the size from the list, and pencil-in a description.  Diane's is there first, so you can see what's happening.  If you don't already have a uniform, this is your chance to come and try one on.  Thinking about getting a tri-suit? Bring your checkbook and we can get the order done that night! It is also BYOB. Click here for the sign-up page.

Duncan Outslay has asked the club to take a survey to help improve the Caesar Rodney Half Marathon. The survey takes less than 5 minutes.

Congratulations to Josh and Jen Loren on their wedding in Maui while Josh was there for the Xterra World Championships!
