We have our next monthly meeting scheduled for next week Monday, November 14 at 7:00pm in the Coralville Library Auditorium. We hope to see many of you there, as our guest speaker, Denise Barnhouse from Tri-fit Agape, will be discussing how to plan your 2012 race season.

Additionally, we have compiled a summary of the monthly review from last month. It is a large document so it has been attached to this forum post:

Please review it if you missed the meeting and want to hear about what the team has accomplished in our first year as a club.

As has been mentioned in the last few reminders, we really want to see a good turn out at the upcoming meeting this Monday, Oct 10th at 7:00pm at the Coralville Library. You do not have to be registered with the team to attend, all are welcome! I apologize for sending out so many reminders this month, but your feedback is vitally important to ensure that the team is providing you with useful benefits. Since Board members have a two year term, this meeting will not have a vote for a new board, but we will discuss how the Board has been performing and how we can make improvements if needed.

At the meeting, we will have a paper copy of an end of year survey that we request everyone attending completes. If you are unable to attend, please fill out the survey online here (responses due by midnight on Friday October 14th):

Please try your best to attend the monthly meeting in October. You do not have to be an official team member to attend, in fact we welcome as many people as possible! We are going to do an annual review of the first year of our club and want a lot of feedback from our members and the Iowa City area endurance athletics community in general. The team will provide some light snacks and refreshments and a drawing for some cool prizes to celebrate a successful year, so please make every effort to make it to the meeting and bring friends! Hope to see you there:

There is a scheduled transitions practice (where we just run through T1 / T2) for this Sunday, July 10th, at the Coralville Reservoir. I was going to be in charge of running this event, but I have had something come up and I am no longer free on Sunday. Don't let this stop you though, just don't expect to see me there. Hopefully some of you will still take the opportunity to get together and work on that important "free time" you can gain by improving your transitions.

Also, don't forget the team social at the Country Club Estates, 1339 Lake Shore Drive, on Monday. Hope to see many of you there!

Don't forget our next team get together is Monday July 11th at 7:00 PM. Becky Klutts has reserved the pool and shelter house at the Country Club Estates. Please bring a beverage or food to share, we had a great variety at each event so far. Here are the directions. Take Rohret road west until you reach Phoenix Drive and take a right, continue on Phoenix until you get to Lake Shore. You will see the pool, tennis court and shelter house in front of you. Take a left on Lake Shore and it is about 10 feet and there is a driveway to the right. Here is a map, and the address is 1339 Lake Shore Drive.

If anyone would like to get a workout in before the meeting, post in the forums...
