That's right, it's that time of year again where we must organize and
meet for our annual club meeting and elections.
Our meeting will be held on Thursday February 9 at 6:00 pm at the
Budweiser Plant located on Rt.31. Host Steve McCormick was gracious
enough to offer his meeting room for yet another club function.
Thanks, Steve! One of the evening's events will be a conference call
from USAT to announce a really cool new program. My lips are sealed on
that one right now!
I need to thank ALL of the club officers and board members for helping
to make my term(s) as president some of the most rewarding and
fulfilling experiences of my life. I know, you're all thinking if that
was rewarding, I must have a crummy life. Honestly, I met, literally,
many tons of new people! I enjoyed the growth of the club, the sport,
and the BEGINNING of the transformation of our Central New York
community. Let's keep that momentum (that's a physics word) rolling
The growth of our club has been amazing. Starting at about 250 members
when I assumed the office, we grew to 1,100 + members last season. We
expanded our venues to not only Jamesville Beach, but Oneida Shores,
and this season (thanks to Eric Prager), to Gillie Lake out in
Camillus. The WTF began as a pipe dream. Anne Austin laid the ground
work on that one. Now, the WTF is enjoyed by 100+ members/week. Yes,
it's under utilized! Get your butts out there! We are offering
seminars, workshops, enjoy a lively e-mail listserv, a gorgeous and
ever evolving website,... Wow... That's a lot! I still think Destiny
should offer us a space (free of charge, of course) to expand on our
WTF! Think about it, we could build a 50 m lap pool, 200 m running
track, cycling, strength training and yoga, locker rooms... A year
round, complete triathlon training facility. CNY would become the
triathlon capital of the world. All the top pros would come HERE to
train! Heck we already have one here. Right, Kristin? There's my
dream. I know, dream on!
As I step down from my position, I've ensured that the role will be
filled by someone even more passionate about this club than I. Current
WTF yoga guru, Ms. Bridget Lichtinger, graciously accepted the
nomination for president. Please give her all the support (and grief
:) ) that you've given me!
Stay tuned for details regarding the dinner and complete election
ballot. In the meantime, thanks for everything you've done for me!
President and Soon to be Past President
