Provincial head coach RossAnn Edwards, provincial coach Brendan McKenzie and Joel Howlett former STC Junior Elite Athlete and STC committee member will be on hand to conduct a provincial triathlon clinic in Regina this weekend.
The weekend will include a variety of training as well as information sessions and team building.
Congratulations to Don on this very deserving honour. It is safe to say that nobody has done more for the sport of Triathlon in the province than Don.
Donald Gallo first encountered the triathlon while watching “The Wide World of Sports” on TV in the early 1980’s. Having recently moved to Saskatoon, he began to seek out and compete in triathlon events around Saskatchewan. He soon realized there was a need for leadership and organization for the sport within the province, and quickly moved to fill that void.
Using the entry lists of provincial races as reference, Gallo contacted other Saskatoon triathletes to come to an informal meeting at his home. By 1985, those informal meetings had become the first triathlon club in Saskatchewan, the Saskatoon Triathlon Club Incorporated (STCI).
It's AGM time!
The RMC will hold its AGM at the Italian Club on Thursday November 5, 2015. Cocktail hour
from 5pm to 6pm,
dinner, meeting and board elections from 6pm to 7pm. Dinner and drinks are free for RMC
Following the meeting Terry Hooper will address new rule changes in triathlon
so that you can avoid equipment that causes race-day stress because certain
equipment is not allowed. Also how to avoid being penalized for doing
things you shouldn't because they don't pass triathlon event rules.
Terry will also speak about the RMC Youth team - why they do it, who is
involved, when do they do their thing, how to join, and what is that thing
they're doing?. The RMC Youth Team has been rolling for over three years
now for ages 7 to 19, and has had over 120 RMC Youth members pass through the
We sure hope our members come out and see the direction our club is heading and
that your interests are understood.
See you there.
