Tri Mania!!
POSTED: 3/05/13 9:42 PM

Hi All,

It's that time of year where we kick off the triathlon season with the Tri Mania Summit and Expo (formerly know as Multisport World Conference and Expo) on Sunday, March 24th at Georgetown Prep in North Bethesda.

There are plenty of positions from greeters, to seminar attendants, swag bag distributions, and swim relay coordinators.
Morning person? We have positions starting at 7:30.
Not a morning person, we need people until 4:30.

Oh, and of course volunteers will be thanked by me. :::^D:: And get some swag too.

Want to do MORE??? We need a few AWESOME volunteers to help out the entire day. You will receive some extra special thank you swag.

Keep an eye on this post for more info!

Already interested? Please email me at ac.dctri@gmail.com for your top pick of positions!

Thank you and looking forward to a great event!
Amanda

Okay, starting to panic a bit...

PLEASE help out for any time you can. We really need people, especially for the relay competition and campus dash - but really all day.

Please email me at ac.dctri@gmail.com or I will have to resort to begging...

Thank you!
Amanda

Come on folks! This is a really fun opportunity. Volunteer for a shift and then hit up the seminars and informational clinics when you're not volunteering. Come and cheer on the Snapple/DCTri Elite teams, the club board team, the club member team and the NTP member team competing in the different challenges (5k run, 4x400 swim relay, and 10k CompuTrainer time trial).

Georgetown Prep is very close to the Grosvenor Metro station, so it's very metro accessible. Or join up with NTP at Peirce Mill for a group bike ride out to the event.

There are lots of cool booths and lots of free samples. Bike makers tend to bring out novel concept bikes to the event for everyone to check out (unfortunately, no free samples of bikes).
