Letter from the President
Happy Holidays TTT! I'll try and keep this note short and sweet so you can all get on to your busy holiday season.

First up, we've teamed up with Wattie Ink to get some redesigned kits this year! The store will be opening VERY soon, and you'll have two weeks to get your order in. We do have sizing kits available. If you haven't had a chance to size up, let us know and we'll try and work out a time to meet up. This will be the only opportunity during the 2018 season to get a race kit, so be sure to get your order in if you would like one. When the store is officially live, we'll get a post up on Facebook and also send out a separate email to everyone. The kits look great, and we're anxious to see them out at the races next year!

Speaking of races, congrats to all of our 2017 TTT Race Series winners! They were each presented with an embroidered bag as a prize, along with discounted memberships for next year. Great job! We're still waiting on some dates to get posted, but the 2018 TTT Race Series schedule is going to look just like the 2017 series in terms of which races we're doing. We're also going to be looking into adding a volunteer component for those of you who help out our local race organizers on a regular basis. So keep your eyes open for that as you plan your 2018 race schedule!

And when planning your 2018 race schedule, don't forget that being a TTT member gets you access to some great discounts with many of our sponsors and partners. This includes bike gear and maintenance at Recycles, merchandise at Fleet Feet, massage at HHMB, membership with TeamIndure, and discounts with many of our local race providers including Trivium Racing! Check out the TTT website Sponsors/Discounts pages for full details, and use the links provided to request discount codes.

And if you're not a member yet, or haven't renewed for 2018, now is a great time to do it. We've got brand new shirts this year (out with the grey, in with the green!), and new activities and incentives planned for 2018. We would love to have you as a part of the team, and to get you involved with the local multi-sport community!
