** Volunteers needed for St Mary’s Triathlon
————————————————————
PRTC and Virginia/Maryland Tri Series are encouraging all PRTC members to race in the St Mary’s triathlon on June 16 (Sprint) or 17 (Olympic), 2017. The board also requests that you please ask your spouses, kids, friends, and neighbors to volunteer. For each volunteer that PRTC brings to the race, a portion of the race profits will be donated to the club. Please contact Simon at simon.richardson.ctr@navy.mil for more information.

** Happy Hour Run
————————————————————
In January we will be starting up our monthly Happy Hour Runs. These runs vary in length depending on the desire of the group, and typically begin and end at or near a local watering hole at which members can get to know one another better after the run. We are looking for members to volunteer to host each month. The host will be responsible for picking a location for the run and subsequent happy hour, along with actually leading the run (no experience is required to lead!). Please email us at paxrivertriathlon@gmail.com (mailto:paxrivertriathlon@gmail.com) if you are interested!

** KIDS Triathlon Race Director needed
————————————————————
We are looking for a volunteer Race Director for the 10
^th Annual Pax River Kids Tri. The Kids tri is typically the first Saturday in August, and is held at the Wildewood Helicopter Pool. Last year’s Race Director, Brian Doyle, will be around to help with planning as needed. We are looking to kick off the planning for the triathlon in February.
