Resolution Classic 5K
The race was a huge success and I anticipate us making about $750 for the Tri-Dawgs. I still am waiting on some invoices. Thank you to everyone who raced, volunteered and/or helped get the word out. If you missed out on the race this year, come out and join in the fun next year.

Team Uniforms
Happy New Year,
The deadline is actually Jan 11, which is less than 2 weeks away!  Here is a link to the ordering instructions

Please remember that we are a rare triathlon club that does not require dues, and it's even rarer that a team has the expertise of a swim coach on board, giving us the gift of a weekly team practice, in addition to the other, behind-the-scenes stuff he does for the team.

All that is required is that, as a member of the team, you register for races as a Delaware Swim & Fitness Tri-Dawg.  A team uniform is the only way for the team to recognize you on the course and give you Tri-Dawg strength to power you to the finish.  

The kits are reasonably priced, below off-the-rack pieces in stores that are not customized.  The  reason for that is quantity. We place an order for 15 or more pieces and receive a cool price reduction. 

Please read the sheet with all the info you need to order and be sure to get a check to Diane or Coach on or before Jan 11.  If we don't get 15 orders, we'll have to postpone the order.  So far, I have received one (1) order.

Congratulations to Jocelyn "Wongstar" Wong on her engagement to Kevin Neill.

Congratulations to Dave Drysdale on his engagement to Anne Wood.

Delaware Marathon
So you've decided to do a half or full marathon in 2014. This marathon is a nice one to do and you  don't have the travel expenses to deal with.

USAT Renewal
Hey Glenn, Not sure if you want to pass this along to the team but…I signed up for Princeton 70.3 and at the time I was told I had to renew my USAT license. I completed registration and USAT renewal online via Active and got receipts for both. This past week I got a note from USAT that I still needed to update my membership for 2014. I contacted USAT and they had never received it from Active. So, good safety tip for the team is that if people renewed their USAT via Active and as part of an event registration, they may want to confirm that USAT got it.

Long Sleeve Jacket
For those of you Dawgs that already have the traditional uniform, but are looking for a long-sleeve windblock jacket to add to your wardrobe suitable for cold weather riding, please consider placing an order now.  If we're able to rally 12 people, they will be $125 each.  The deadline is the same -- checks made out to DSF TriDawgs mailed to Diane Arnold at 2209 Anthony Avenue, Broomall PA  19008 with style and size in the memo line by Saturday, January 11th. 

Ladies, note that this is a unisex item, so you'll need to convert your normal size to the men's sizing.  Additional details can be found in the link below.  Thanks for your consideration!
The Windblock Jersey provides sleek, high performance transitional protection from wind and rain with sublimated front, sleeve and back yoke panels plus functional details such as three pockets and gripper elastic.

Have a great week!
