Month in Review

April 2014

​We are CTC, Who are You?


It looks like the end of 2014 will be just like the start, cold and snowy.  But we still managed to survive the first big cold snow event for the winter.  How can we stay warm this winter.  Plenty of CTC events below.

CTC Winter Banquet

Come join CTC on December 7, 2014 at the Flat Iron Cafe for our annual Winter Banquet. Celebrate and remember 2014 with all your friends and re-live all the exciting moments that we had as the Cleveland Tri Club. The club will recognize our sponsors, member accomplishments and embarrass each other with the much anticipated Laughing Hyena awards.

Please RSVP to ASAP.

This event will be limited to the first 80 people due to the size of the room at the Flat Iron. Cost will be $25.00 per person(cash only) with a cash bar open into the wee hours of the morning!

Please note: All RSVP's are required at, Facebook is not a place for RSVP's. Due to scheduling conflicts, we do not have enough time to collect money prior to the event. We are relying on all of you that say you're coming to plan the catering. Please make sure you come and bring cash with you.

The Flat Iron Cafe is located at 1114 Center Street Cleveland, OH  44113

The following announcements were also made.  Keep an eye out for additional information to show up soon. 

Tri bug NewsLetter

The newest edition of the TriBug Newsletter is  available for your reading pleasure.  This quarter we hear from Mark Durno, Marie Rote and Eric Gibb.  We also get to know Tiffany Duecker a little bit better.  A link to her profile is in the column to the right.

USAT  National Challenge Competition

December starts the USAT National Challenge Competition.  The NCC is designed to get triathletes excited about off-season training at the club level. Tri Clubs across the country go head-to-head to see who can log the most training miles during the competition.   Swimming is the focus for December - though all disciplines are logged and we want to win in overall, too!  Remember that Liquid Lifestyles has an unlimited pass to Masters classes, which can be used at all LND locations! This is a perfect way to kick off December and get back into training.    

Let's do this!!!
