May News and Notes

Our May meeting was held on Monday, May 5, and featured a transition clinic presented by Donnie Artley.  A transition rack was set up outside the Lake Jackson Intermediate Band Hall, and several members brought bikes and gear to practice and share tips on making transitions faster and smoother. He also provided a helpful handout.  Click here to download.

Following the clinic, we adjourned to the Wursthaus to have some social time and discuss a little club business.

The main focus of the discussion was the upcoming Firecracker 4, sponsored by Dow Chemical and directed by Andy Littleton.

  • Please be sure to sign up either as a participant or volunteer by Sunday, May 18 to guarantee your preferred shirt size!!!

Also discussed was the possibility of LJFAT subsidizing (either in full or part) the fee to swim at Mammoth Lake.  LJFAT would pay an annual or monthly fee to Mammoth Lake so that LJFAT members could swim there free of charge or at a reduced price.  We will keep you posted on this as we gather more information about the feasibility of this idea.
