Social Update

June, July and August. And December.

There seem to be sporting achievements aplenty now the tri season is in full go-faster-stripes mode and what better way to celebrate with fellow “athletes” than with a social every month? (Maybe with a social every fortnight?)

Tomorrow (Tuesday 26th June) sees another Chippy Chuesday. Head to Teignmouth for a 6.30pm sea swim followed by chips afterwards. Or just turn up late (about 7.30pm), miss the swim and just have chips.

Sunday 15th July is Honiton Sprint Triathlon…and this year’s club championship! To celebrate this and the large number of ETC’s participating (there are still spaces available), there will be a barbecue and general high jinks after the race, at the race ground. It promises to be a great day out and everyone (including children) is welcome, whether competing, supporting or just turning up for the food. Further details to follow.

Sunday 5th August (morning) is Becky’s Ride. This annual event is a memorial cycle ride remembering the life of Becky Scott who was an active member of ETC and lost her life in a cycling accident in 2013, aged 24.

There will be two cycle rides of different distances heading out from Exeter Quay. Details to follow closer to the date.

Today marks exactly six months until Christmas Day and therefore the perfect opportunity to explain the ETC Christmas Do will now be held on Friday 7th December 2018, not Friday 15th December as previously advertised. It seems 15th December is the most popular date for works’ Christmas events and being the considerate club it is, ETC has decided to avoid a clash. Do bear in mind though, any Christmas Do’s after 7th December are bound to be a disappointment.

As always all ETC members and their friends, families and local MP’s are welcome at the social events. Any queries please email me at
