Russ Cager Elected Chairman
20 October 2013
Russ Cager was elected to Chair the Rugby Triathlon Club at its Annual General Meeting on October 15, taking over from outgoing Chairman Ali Postlethwaite.
In her report to club members Ali highlighted the club's success in growing its membership and the numbers participating in races. She particularly focused on the success of the Daventry Sprint Triathlon in terms of entry numbers, organisation and positive feedback from competitors and acknowledged the efforts made by members in supporting that race and her fellow voluntary committee members in ensuring the smooth running of the club.
On becoming Chairman Russ Cager said: "I'm so proud of our club's successes and plan to build on them. My main aim is to develop the number of members racing, supporting both experienced and novice athletes, without losing sight of the spirit of fun and enthusiasm that I've experienced and for which the club is well known."
The Club also agreed to support two charities in 2014 - JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) and the Hoskyns Centre in Rugby.
