There will be a joint-class NTP meeting, happy hour, and raffle on Thurs., May 3 at McFadden’s (in the downstairs meeting room). All DC Tri members are invited to attend to meet and welcome the NTP'ers to the club!

Raffle tickets can be purchased ($5 each or 3 for $10) in advance of the event at https://www.highcloudevents.org/HighCloudFundraisingRaffle&Tickets . Tickets may also be purchased at McFadden’s (cash only) on the day of the event until the time of the drawing. Winners need not be present to claim their prizes (but must pick up prizes from a designated High Cloud representative).
This event will be held in conjunction with the High Cloud Foundation, creator of the PeasantMan triathlon (Lake Anna, Sunday, May 5), and there will be a brief pre-race meeting prior to the raffle.

In addition, volunteers are needed for the event if you're able to help: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/RKP6PHW
**update with respect to venue**
We will have the entire downstairs area of McFadden's with the exception of the back room (they double booked that area). Woo hoo... we'll have lots of space, so bring all of your friends!
Becky: That means both NTP classes 1 and 2, correct?
Does this mean McFadden's is shutting down the bar for us and the double booked group? Because the "entire downstairs" is pretty much the entire bar.
And yes, I've invited both NTP classes to the event.
@Ed - yup, there will be a brief meeting for BOTH NTP classes (1 and 2) but all members are invited to meet the NTP'ers and welcome them to the DC Tri Club!
@Bryan - Yes!! Can you believe it? We will have both the front and back bars downstairs for our event. Any regular McFadden's customers will be relegated to the loft bar... pretty amazing!
Do you love your mother? If you do, you should volunteer at PeasantMan. There is $2,000 worth of Gtown Cupcakes waiting for you at the PeasantMan village if you volunteer.
Don't be a mother hater, fill in this volunteer form and help out.
The PeasantMan Athlete's Guide is now available online at
If you want to volunteer to help us set up for this happy hour, please email Becky --> becky at highcloud dot org
We have the entire basement of McFadden's to ourselves this Thursday. This will bigger and better than what the GSA can offer east of Las Vegas.
We are also working on our contacts at the Secret Service to provide extra entertainment. However, we are running into a bit of a roadblock. President Obama has informed us that they are on a strict curfew these days.
Is there a way to print The PeasantMan Athlete's Guide without the background?
drop me an email and I'll send you a copy minus the background
In lieu of George Clooney, there will be a Vietnamese surprise guess there. I know you all can't wait to see who it is.
