End of Season Party & Awards 2019 Results

After a busy and successful year for Pompey Tri,  much fun and frolics were had at the end of season party & awards held on Saturday 30th December!

There was cake, there was dancing and there were lots of Hawaiian Garlands! Must have been something to do with the nautical/Hawaii Kona theme, which proved very popular indeed!

For those that were unable to make it and as a reminder to those who did, here are a few pictures of the night and a list of the official Portsmouth Triathletes Award Winners 2019!

AGM & The Great AGM Bake Off!!

Cake – the fourth discipline of triathlon

The AGM will again this year feature our famous Bake Off! Bring a plate of home-baked goods (labelled with what they are and contain but not who baked them) and we will ask the assembled triathletes to taste and vote for their favourite cake – purely for fun but obviously deadly serious!

Please come and support the event. We need at least 10% of membership present (that’s nearly 60 people!) to be able to hold this meeting which will decide vital next steps for the club and of course who has won the bake off! On that note, bring a plate of caked goods or just come as a ‘judge’ – the choice is yours!

Remember, this is not just an AGM, this is the Pompey Tri Club, superbly smooth, no faffing about AGM running efficiently by our esteemed leader giving us plenty of time to chat, and of course eat cake!

When & Where

Where: Blue Lagoon Club, Hilsea Lido

When: Friday 8th November 2019 @ 7pm
