Devilman Challenge
Turks Head tri team has challenged us to a head to head competition using Devilman. TH came in second to us in the Piranha club series and they are anxious to see how they stack up to us one on one.Of course this means we need to get as many signed up for this race as possible. New this year is a sprint and half du which will also count towards the challenge. Click here to sign up for Devilman.

Mike Clark Legacy Foundation
Our Tri Dawg Board of Directors met two weeks ago and we decided to partner with a local charity (Mike Clark Legacy Foundation).  For more information on MCLF and Mike Clark (a Delaware Ironman triathlete who past away in 2008), please see the attached 
The Mike Clarke Legacy Foundation (MCLF) is 100% volunteer-driven and we have two opportunities to help MCLF in 2014.

1) On May 11th, the Tri Dawgs have a opportunity to assist as course marshals during the Delaware Marathon.  We would assist the MCLF team by providing 10 volunteers to help in the Wawaset neighborhood (volunteers would be assigned a shift lasting two hours). 

2) In August, MCLF will host the Mike Clark Memorial Bide Ride. MCLF has two rest stops on the course - Ashland Nature Center and Northbrook Orchard. Both are great locations!  We would provide our Tri Dawg team tent, a table for snacks, and volunteers to take shifts at one (or both) of these rest stops.  We would like to provide 10 volunteers (again, we would have shifts). The bonus, you can ride the course after your before/after your shift. 

Please let me know or contact David Anshen ( directly if you are interested in being a volunteer.  More details will be provided as we get closer to the events.  

Cogratulations to Laura O'Sullivan on her promotion to captain. Laura is a 21 year veteran of the New Castle County police force.

Jennersville Y Group Ride
We will be starting this ride on Tuesdays start April 1. We leave the Y at 6:00 PM sharp for about a 20-22 mile ride. All levels welcome. No one left behind. Lots of rolling hills in beautiful Amish country in southern Chester County with one challenging climb.

Triathlon Transition Clinic
See the attachment regarding information on this clinic April 5th with Duncan Outslay. This should be excellent for both novices and those who need a refresher before the season starts.
