Spring Handicap Series
The Spring Handicap Series is starting on February 4th! It is only $5 for the whole series
but it is also only open to club members. So what better reason to sign up than race in the series
where anyone can win?! Remember, it is $5/$10/$15 for students, individuals, and families, respectively.
All races will start at the NMT pool and some will have brunches afterwards. This week's
race starts at 8AM and ends at Robert's house (just down School of Mines from the pool) for a brunch. Please contact Robert for information on what you can bring to the brunch.

Polar Bear Triathlon
Six souls braved the cold weather and
down to WSMR for the 2006 Polar Bear Triathlon on the 10th of December.
Fortunately, it actually "warmed up" a bit from the frigid temperatures
New Mexico had been experiencing in the days prior. Perhaps that
explained why a few of did so well and why all of us enjoyed our time.
Below are our results but things were a little mixed up that day (200+
racers for too few volunteers) so I reserve right to change placements
later if mistakes continue to come to light. All times are for 5k run *
T1 + 30k Bike * T2 + 400m swim
