This past week a group of the UBCTC and I went to the Annual Tri BC Fundraising Gala at the Stanley Park Rowing Club.
I wasn't too sure what to expect, but it was a lot of fun. All together we had 10 of us from the club, who get along really well and had a good time.
The atmosphere of the Gala wasn't as much "Party" as it was "Socialize and Mingle", nevertheless it was a good time and it was nice seeing some people I raced against in the summer and haven't seen since.
Paul Regensburg and Meyrick Jones
Meyrick encouraged us to come out and I'm glad he did. There was a great talk by Triathlon Coach and Commentator Paul Regensburg. He told a great story about the 2000 olympics and how he announced for CBC Simon Whitfields win.
Winston and I dressed somewhat similarly
Following the Gala, the group of us went over to Matt's place for a few more drinks and games.
All round it was a pretty fantastic Thursday night if I may say so myself and hopefully we can have a lot more team outings like this in the future.
All in all, I would say it was good for the club to have such a big showing. We were by far the largest and ONLY club represented there. Considering the growth we hope to make over the next few years, I think its exposure like this that could really help.
