Events

With only 28 days to go, we're excited as ever for our first triathlon event for this year, Blue Lagoon, will we be seeing you there?

Another big event coming up, is the Isuzu Ironman African Championships, in just 51 days. Are you taking part? And which distance will you cover?

We would love to know what events you are doing, so join our Social WhatsApp group and share with us. We would also love to see the photos from your events.

Yolandi will be doing her first Full Ironman and she's raising funds for the Wilderness Foundation Africa, if you are able to donate, please click here.

If you are raising funds for any event you are taking part in, please let us know.

General

Club MSM Go Global Campaign

Going forward, Club MSM would like to contribute to our members. Pretty soon, we will have a whole page dedicated to this on our website too! This page will have more information as well as photos of our athletes taking part in international races.

There will be two categories:
- Financial contribution when a member reaches podium in club kit at any event

- Financial contribution when a member enters an international race

Send us an email with all of the details of your race, let Club MSM support you to make your dreams come true!

Club MSM Social

Save the date, we will have our "Christmas in July" social on 30 June 2023.

For now, make sure to add the date to your calendar and keep the Friday open so that we can celebrate and socialize together.

More details to follow soon.

Charity Events

This week we asked our members to react to a Poll on our social and training WhatsApp groups. Together with DragonFly Tri we will be arranging a charity ride to Darling.

The entry fee will be R100 and this will include a drink.

The option will be to cycle there (75 km) and to cycle back (55 km) as well. And we needed feedback on interest on the two available dates: 18 Feb or 13 May, if you haven't voted yet, head over to any of the two WhatsApp groups and cast your vote so we can finalize the arrangements. 

Club Kit & Social Wear

In this year, we are planning to make the club kit more accessible to members, we are looking at moving "closer to home" so it's easier to fit and order club kit.

We also have a few great ideas for some casual wear! Keep an eye out for updates!

Club MSM AGM & Awards Ceremony

Save the date, our annual AGM & Awards Ceremony will take place on Friday, 27 October 2023.

Please make sure to add it to your calendar! We would love for the whole club to attend along with friends and family!

Something New

"Dream big dreams; only big dreams have the power to move men's souls."
Marcus Aurelius

So let's dream big and go to Ironman Cozumel as a club in 2024! There is more than enough time to plan and raise enough funds! Let us know if you would like to be a part of something like this?

(In the mean time, add it to your calendar, bucket list and vision board)

Until next time!

Club MSM Committee

P.S. Make sure to use our TimeTree (it's free) to stay up to date with all the events happening.
And, as always, if you don't see your favorite event on the calendar, let us know so we can add it!
