Weekly Newsletter 1/3/14

Congratulations to the newly elected GCTri BOD: President – RJ Boergers, Secretary – Mike Satz, CFO- Chuck Dender, Members at large – Nicci Schock & Jen Sheppard.  We also welcome Mark Smith as the weekday ride coordinator (one of our most important committees).  Special thanks to Mike Haskell, Kristine Papamichael and Andre Preotesa for all of their hard work last year.  If you’d like to volunteer for a committee please contact RJ; we can always use more help!

The Hincapie fit kits have arrived!  They will be available for you to try on triathlon & cycling gear at our sponsor – Fleet Feet of Hoboken (604 Washington St.) from Saturday 1/4 to Wednesday 1/15.  Please pay close attention to future ordering instructions from Jen Sheppard.  If we have the orders placed by 1/31 we hope we will have our gear by April.

It is time to pay your 2014 membership dues.  All 2013 memberships are set to expire 1/31/14 – so please re-new before then.  As mentioned previously, you will receive a water bottle with GCTri logo as your membership gift.  Please visit the webpage to renew: http://www.gctri.org/login-2/

The Facebook group will only be available to paying members, our sponsors, and husbands/wives (our support team is critical) as of 1/31/14 – all others will be dropped.  This policy was created when we noticed an imbalance between our RaceReach roster and our Facebook roster.  Why should unpaid members have some of the same benefits as the paying members?

The kickoff club social will be held on Saturday 1/18 at 4PM at Morans Pub (501 Garden St.).  We will have raffle prizes and representatives from local race companies may be joining us to give us information about their races.  Hope you can come and get energized about a great 2014 season!
