 EGTC Oktoberfest 2017 started last week with an excellent Swim Smooth session led by Tom complete with purple EGTC kit wearing illustrations! One of the ideas that emerged was to start sessions through October with a mobilisation warm up - so be prepared to do this on poolside and maybe bring a pair of shorts to wear over your Speedos to preserve modesty and avoid embarrassment! explaining the what, how and why of this Autumn/Winter’s swim programme. This Saturday, Andy Peel will be in the chair introducing a new way to approach your diet and lay the foundations for a successful season - 9.00am in the Pavilion. The following Saturday will be Tri Hiking with a c.9 mile walk starting and finishing at Java & Jazz in Forest Row - John’s offering 20% discount to all taking part, so cake/coffee and lunch are on my list!

Can I remind you that the Outdoor Pursuits event on Sun 15 Oct will need to be pre-booked so either let myself or Emily Miles know if you wish to attend? The high ropes and archery sessions are looking favourite currently……

The Club AGM is on Sat 11 November and final nominations are required as soon as possible for the main Committee posts - send to

Finally, remember our brand new Awards Evening & Party Celebration takes place on Saturday 25th November and tickets can be purchased via the club website. Please support this new initiative for what promises to be a fun-filled evening - more details to follow from Partymeisters Tim and Cathy!
