February Letter from the Pres

Good morning FAST folks!


I saw bare pavement on my driveway yesterday.  First time in about five weeks.  May actually have to pump up the tires on my cross bike this weekend!

It’s also time to update everyone on what is coming up in the next few weeks.


FAST 30th Anniversary Glasses

For those that attended the FAST awards dinner last month, you know that the glasses that are being given out to all FAST members are defective in that the logo is peeling off.  They are being returned to the manufacturer for replacement.  More news coming as to when/where they will once again be available.


FAST Cycling Clinic &  Bike Rodeo

On Sunday, March 23 FAST is sponsoring a cycling clinic using Triad Health & Fitness new facility with an indoor turf field.  Riding a bike is easy.  Riding a bike on busy streets requires handling skills that always needs practice.  Take some time early in the year before the season gets underway to work on your low speed handling skills and work on what it requires to ride in a peloton or pace line.  Plus we will have a bike rodeo for those that want to see how their bike handling stacks up against everyone else.  A flyer for the event is attached.


FAST / MyTriGuys Swap Meet

Our 1st annual club swap meet.  This is an opportunity to sell that new or used cassette, saddle, set of wheels, or bike that has been sitting in your basement or garage for the past year.  Or… see what bargains may be out there that other triathletes and cyclists are selling.  The swap meet is sponsored by FAST and MyTriGuys at an 8,000 square foot indoor space next to the MyTriGuys shop in Livonia.  We will have a flyer circulating shortly for those of you who wish to purchase space to sell your gear.  The date is Saturday, April 5.  This will be open to all area triathletes, cyclists, and endurance sports addicts no matter what their club affiliation is.  Mark your calendars.


FAST Apparel & Gear

Last year we did not have an apparel order because it looked like it would be difficult to hit some minimums required.  The result is some pent up demand.  However, we need two or three volunteers from the membership almost immediately to coordinate the order.  Please contact any club officer if you can work on putting the gear order together.  Most of the club officers will be at George’s Senate for breakfast tomorrow morning (9:00 AM).


Other Events

There are other events in the planning stages coming up as the season gets underway, including Running Mechanics, Bike Maintenance & Repair Clinic, and a Beginner Triathlon Clinic.  Watch our website and future emails for more information.


Keep the rubber side down,

Seeking Volunteers & Swimmers for FASTs Super Swim Meet
Volunteers and swimmers are needed for our Sunday, February 2, 2014, Super Swim Meet, contested at Brighton High School in short course meters. This is our 27th anniversary hosting the super meet. We'd like to put on another great meet but we need your help. It is possible to be a volunteer and also swim, especially if you can time or count for the 1500m or help set-up. The entry form is on the Michigan Masters Swimming website.We are in need of 30 volunteers, including: timers, meet set-up, runners, hospitality, and clean-up. Deck set-up volunteers need to arrive at 6:00 a.m. We need 2-3 people to work the hospitality food table for swimmers. This job entails restocking the tables with food, and being friendly with the swimmers. Timers are split into two shifts, with the early shift starting at 7 a.m. and the later, at 10am. We also need a volunteer to pick up the volunteer lunch around 11:30 a.m. the day of the meet. If you have any Super Bowl decor, please bring and decorate. We will have coffee and bagels, plus lunch and snacks for the volunteers. Swimmers and volunteers, please wear your FAST gear on the pool deck. I recommend shorts, FAST red t-shirts and shoes that can get wet.
