Buxton Aquathlon Report — 9 May 2016

Paul Rushworthy, our Publicity Office has kindly provided me with a report from the Aquathlon.

Paul writes:
“On Saturday 30/04/2016 Krissie Ivings of Buxton Tri Club organised an Aquathlon held in the Buxton Swimming Pool and Park. 41 local children aged 6 to 12 years took part in swimming in the pool, with a run around the park. One of the competitors Anya Dunne of Marple Swimming Club raised over £350 for Alzheimers Research. After collecting her medal Anya said 'It was really good fun, and great to be able to raise money for Alzheimers Research too' ”

Chip Buttie Social—9 February 2016

Following on from the success of the after swim Christmas "Chip Buttie" evening another chance for a social get together has been arranged for Wednesday 17th February from 10.00 pm onwards. This is a great opportunity to meet with other Club members or Wednesday evening swimmers to enjoy a drink, chip buttie and chat. Same arrangements as last time ie butties available on arrival at Old Hall Hotel (token cost of £1 payable on the night to help defray costs.)

Remember you do not have to be a member of HPTC - Wednesday swimmers, guests and partners always welcome. We look forward to seeing as many of you as can make it.

Also note that the Club Achievement award will be presented this Wednesday (10th February) just before swimming so your support and attendance would be appreciated.

Weekly Turbo Sessions—5 January 2016

The weekly coached turbo sessions start again this Thursday at the new venue: Buxton Rugby club (between Harpur Hill and Brierlow Bar). It's got space for more people, showers and a bar upstairs - what more could you ask for!? To help cover the cost of the room hire we are now going to charge just £2 per session. I'm sure you'll agree that this is very reasonable. So that we can get an idea of numbers, please can you let me (Mat) or Henry know if you are planning to come along, either by email or through Facebook.

Resumption of Swimming Sessions—5 January 2016

David writes: “Hi Guys perhaps by now you will be bursting to get back to swim training after the recent festivities - well your wait is nearly over! The early Tuesday morning swim (6-8 am) starts again on Tuesday (5th January) and the Wednesday Club night (9-10 pm) the following evening. Please note that access to the Tuesday session, which is currently provided free of charge, is restricted to paid up members of HPTC only. The Wednesday evening sessions will continue to be accessible to all whether Club members or not. However it was decided at our recent AGM to introduce a two tier charge for this specially coached session. For all HPTC members the sessional rate will stay at £5 with non members paying £6. These new charges will take effect as of the end of January which gives everyone chance to consider the advantages of Club membership (£20). A separate subscriptions reminder e-mail will also be circulated shortly outlining some of the additional benefits of membership of HPTC. Wishing you all a happy and healthy New Year.”

Club Subscriptions—14 December 2015

The club subscription for 2016 is due on 1st January 2016. The subscription is held a very reasonable £ 20. You get a free Tuesday morning swim and 10 % off the Wednesday session if you buy 10 sessions up front. Then add to that the camaraderie and companionship of fellow triathletes and the choice is clear - become a member - you won't regret it.
