Ankeny
The TRIRacers have rented the new Cascade Falls pool in Ankeny for lap swimming every Wednesday night in June and July. That means next Wednesday, June 1st will be our first session. We have the pool beginning at 8:15pm for one hour. We will have a workout for you to follow if you would like. There will be life guards on duty. There is no cost to current TRI members (bring your membership card), so come on out and enjoy some outdoor swimming. Email djass@hydro-klean.com if you have questions about the Ankeny group swim.

Ames
The Ames 50 meter outdoor pool has lap swim from 7-10am on Saturday mornings.  It is $5 to get in or you can get a 12 visit punch card for a reduced rate.  We are planning on have a group there each week so let me know if you are interested and what time might work best. We can have some workouts available for this time too.  Email sblaesing@gmail.com if you have questions about the Ames group swim.

March Club Meeting – Sponsored by Bike World March 15, 2011

Despite the mass exodus of people due to spring break travels, we did have a few folks show up for the first club meeting of the season.

Bike World Ames graciously opened their doors on a Sunday for our crew.  After a bit of lunch and a brief discussion about club matters, Tom H gave our attendees a lesson on bike maintenance they should be doing at home on their own.

Thanks to those of you that came out, and thanks to Steve, Leanne, and Tom for hosting us!
