January 3rd Newsletter

Message from your Executive

Welcome to 2017, and farewell to 2016 from your FMCT team. The word often used to describe 2016 is « tumultuous » and for FMCT that was also the case. However, despite all the changes we gained new members, added to the executive and saw many member’s memorable firsts: From 100 metres on an Open Water Swim all the way through to Full Ironman races in Kona and Mt Tremblant.

Let’s keep in mind that in much the same way we train for our Triathlons, what we put in is what we can expect to get out.

With this in mind, we would encourage you to fully participate in our club activities. Whether it’s a Saturday ride, a Tuesday swim, or even just providing feedback, a race report or volunteering, these all help to make for a better experience overall. Again Happy New Year, hoping we all have a great 2017 season and beyond!

Please let us know if you would like to join this training opportunity this coming spring. We will be making reservations soon and need to pick a weekend that works for most. Right now we are thinking the long weekend of May (20/21/22) or the following one (27/28). The Muskoka Half Ironman race has a new host site for 2017. So this will be a great opportunity to train on the new course. See the details here: Muskoka Half

Treats at Spirit TreeAnother Adopt a Road Event is in the books

Despite the rain and cold temperatures, a few of our members joined us last Sunday for our bi-annual Adopt a Road event where we made our favorite Mississauga Rd. stretch sparkly clean! We then retreated indoors at Spirit Tree Cidery for a few treats and a well deserved cup of warm coffee. No exciting finds this time, but we think it’s better to have nothing to report than show how disgraceful some people can be with their outrageous ways of messing up with Mother Nature. Many thanks to all who braved the elements to keep our adopted road clean!
