hi everyone,

As previously mentioned, Kevin Cutjar has really helped PTC this year, to increase membership, and adding $1500 to the club.  The exec has agreed to pay for burgers, hot dogs, fruit, propane, buns, etc.  We want to cheer on all athletes at Skaha Park in the morning, during the expected tight pro races for men and women.  If you are not racing, please show up, bring friends, family, and make it a party to cheer the athletes, and let them know that the Penticton Triathlon Club supports Challenge Penticton.  Jen and Jay Annett will lend us their BBQ.  We need some people to cook.  We hope to have a speaker system for an iPod.  So if you have an iPod with great tunes for running, bring it!  If you have cow bells, pom pom, horns, then bring them too!  We want to have a party.  Then at 4pm we can move to Run Stn #8, at the old Petroglyphs.  We need 6 confirmed volunteers, and 2 of us have signed up.  Email This email address is being protected from spambots.
