Race and Team Registrations, Wednesday Land Training and Friday Beers
RACE REGISTRATION | TEAM DATABASE REGISTRATION | LAND TRAINING | LAST FRIDAY OF THE MONTH BEERS
Welcome to the 2013 racing season!
To kick off the year we’ve got news of some race registrations and personal details housekeeping which you need to submit right away.
1) RACE REGISTRATION
The Captains have now decided on an exciting and challenging programme of races which we plan to compete in during the first half of 2013. They are:
MR500 – 16th and 17th March
Asia Club Crew in Singapore – 15th and 16th May (Midweek)
DBS Marina Regatta – 18th and 19th May
Taiwan Race – 12th – 16th June*
Please register now if you wish to compete in any – or all – of the above races. Please note that you must register “YES/NO/MAYBE” for each race (so registration is required whatever your intentions in the coming months).
(* In order to take part in the Taiwan race you must have competed in at least one Singapore race beforehand).
2) TEAM DATABASE REGISTRATION
As part of our team “Spring Cleaning” we’re upgrading some of the systems that keep our administration running smoothly. This includes a new and comprehensive record for every team member. Once this is complete it will lessen the information we need to ask from you for each race registration. Whether you are a recent recruit or an old hand please go to the following page and enter the details required. It should take about five minutes.
Remember – EVERY team member needs to complete this form so that we will have your details properly logged and can move across to a more streamlined race registration system in the future. If you have not already done so (i.e.. when prompted at the end of the Race Registration process) please go to the following page and complete the online form:
3) LAND TRAINING
Please note that on Wednesday 23rd January and Wednesday 30th January 2013 we will be doing Land Training outside the Singapore Indoor Stadium (as Farrer Park Pool is currently closed for repairs to the pools).
We will be training at the entrance steps to the Indoor Stadium which are directly over the road from the exit from Stadium MRT (CC6 on the Circle Line). Here is the location: http://g.co/maps/46xc6
Please note that there are no showers at the site but toilets are available for changing.
If you are driving you can use Car Park E. Please wear your team kit and Trainers or Running Shoes for the Land Training.
4) LAST FRIDAY OF THE MONTH BEERS
Join us at 6.30pm onwards on Friday 25th January for our first “Last Friday of the Month” social gathering of 2013.
We have a new venue and everyone is welcome:
Upstairs at London on Boat Quay. London is about half way along the waterfront at Boat Quay just a few doors to the right of Smiths Fish and Chips.
Do bring along your team membership card to enjoy a 5% discount on food and drinks (and to ensure that an additional 7% is rebated back to the team!). Also please wear your team drinking shirt.
See you on the steps of the Indoor Stadium at 7.00pm on Wednesday for Land Training, It will be our stairway to heaven for racing fitness…
All the best,
Philip N. Morgan – Team Secretary
British Dragons – Singapore
