  • Team Uniforms
    The racing season has started in earnest and all members should be wearing BTT logo gear.  If you haven't done so already, please pick up you uniform at Janice's house (85 Farnham Street, Belmont).  Come by any weekday evening between 7:30 and 9:30 - no need to call in advance.  If a weekend pick-up works better for you, please contact Janice Biederman at 617-484-7895 to make sure someone will be home.  

    Team ID Cards
    We mailed out the 2004 Team ID Cards in May for use when visiting sponsor and supporter locations.  If you did not receive your card, please contact Pete Cadwell.  

    Open Water Swim Clinic
    This year's open water swim clinic is scheduled for Saturday, June 19th at 9:00am sharp (time was originally 8:00am).  This clinic will familiarize swimmers with open water mass starts, sighting, heads up swimming and managing crowds in races. We will also briefly discuss equipment, training techniques and why and how swimming in open water is different than in a pool.  Please contact Jen Scalise for more information or to RSVP for this event.
    more info at "Team Clinics" on the team website

    Volunteers Needed
    Over the years, many BTT'ers have participated in the Swim Across America.  This year, Matt Bergin is organizing the volunteers to aid in the indoor swim at MIT on Thursday, July 15.  Please contact Matt Bergin for more information or if you are available to help out.  

    June Team Race at Ashland Triathlon
    This year we are focusing on a race each month as a social experience in addition to racing.  This great race on 6/13/04 is in our own backyard so sign up as an individual or team and plan on coming out to support and cheer!  If you are looking for BTT'ers to form a relay or are looking for carpools, etc., please contact Jen Scalise for more information.

    July Team Race at Fairlee
    For July, we have chosen Fairlee as our BTT race of the month.  Why are we mentioning it again in June?  Because we want people to sign up before its full!  For those people who do sign up, we will be coordinating lodging as well.  Please contact Jen Scalise ASAP if you are interested in this or if you are looking for relay members.
    more info at "Events Calendar" on the team website

    August Team Race at Timberman
    BTT already has more than 25 members signed up to do the Timberman Triathlons.  There's still some time to get your entry in if you are interested in racing the half ironman or the sprint distance triathlon on the weekend of August 21 - 22.  Please contact Jen Scalise if you are interested in trying to coordinate lodging or if you want to let us know that you will be at the races.  We are trying to get plans together for a team dinner or BBQ, more details to come later on.
