Guernsey Triathlon Club AGM & Timing Chip Information

Many thanks to those that were able to join us for our AGM on Friday evening. For those that weren't able to attend, the following gives an overview of the main points. Mark Naftel, the Club President for the last 20 years has decided to stand down and take a back seat, Mark will remain an active member of the club and remains on the board in an advisory capacity. We thank Mark for all his hard work in making the club the inclusive and supportive place that it is today.

Hazel Solway has also decided to stand down from her role as secretary, Hazel has dedicated a huge amount of time to the club over the years, and we will miss her greatly. She has promised to still come along and support us at some of our events. Thanks for everything Hazel.

The club's Vice Presidents, Paul de Garis and Emily Squire will be sharing the club presidency moving forward.

We will be launching the race calendar and membership for the 2022 season shortly. There will again be an early bird membership for members who sign up before the 1st of February 2022. Prices and details to follow.

Due to difficulties with the allocation and return of timings chips, it was decided at the AGM to make some changes in the way these are dealt with in the future. Timing chips will no longer be included in the annual membership fee. Members will instead be invited to purchase a new timing chip. New chips have an expected battery like of five years. Provision will be made for members who cancel their membership before the chip dies.

There will also be an option of hiring a chip for a single season. These chips will be returned at the end of each season. 

Juniors will be allocated chips on a season by season basis. They will not be charged a hire fee.

The full details of the 2022 membership fee and timing chip policy will be published following discussion at the next Committee meeting. As always, if anyone believes that the club's membership fee or charges are an impediment to they participant in the sport they should contact one of the club's directors in confidence.
