TAZ Update – 9/11/2018

ALOHA!
Here's this week's update. If you have any questions, please see any board member or one of the coaches. 
Board Meeting
  • Our next board meeting is Monday, September 17th @ 6:30pm. We invite anyone that would like to join us and learn more about what it means to be on the board to attend this meeting.  Whether you've just joined TAZ or have been here for years, we always need help running our club in all aspects.  Fresh ideas help us grow and are always welcome! Please contact Diana if you plan on attending as we order dinner to have during the meeting.  Meeting address is 3033 N Central Avenue, Ste 810, Phoenix, 85012.

 Ironman Volunteering

  • We are again volunteering at both the 1/2 and full Ironman races. It is because of this event that we can keep our membership dues low, maintain our canoes and pay for lake fees so we need ALL members to volunteer for each event. 
  • Ilona (Run Station), Amy (Women's change tent), and Stacia (Bike in/out) – each need a co-captain to help manage their sections and learn what it takes to run them. Please either reach out to them directly or any board member for more details. 
  • Ironman 70.3 (1/2) – Sunday, 10/21 – bike course pointers – volunteer sign up
  • Ironman  – Saturday 11/17 & Sunday, 11/18 – we need volunteers for the Women's change tent, Bike in/out and Run station #9. – volunteer sign up
Practice Schedule
  • Tuesday / Thursday – open practice @ 6:00pm
  • Saturday – open practice @ 6:00am
  • Sundays – if you have a 1-man, 2-man or SUP – join us for Small Craft Sunday @ 7:00am
  • Please remember to use the Heja app to let your coaches know if you are making it to practice. We will be using it to  mark your ADR practices (See below)    
  • REMINDER – bring plenty of water to practice. It is hot out there so make sure you hydrate every day – practice or not. 
  • Until October 1st, we ask that Keikis not come to practice because of the heat. Juniors (16+) that raced this year are still allowed to come to practice. 
Another Dam Race – Saturday, November 3rd
  • If you have not yet paid for your race fees but are interested in doing this race, you need to let Kui and/or Amy know ASAP.   Those that are interested in racing ADR need to be at practice this Saturday, September 15, 2018 at 6:00a sharp to discuss training schedule and the standards paddlers will have to meet as we have more people wanting to race than seats available. 
A Hui Hou!!
