Did you get an email with "The Woodlands Running Club: TWRC 2011-2012 role expired" in the subject line?

Did you get an email with "The Woodlands Running Club: TWRC 2011-2012 role expired" in the subject line?

This is an automated message from the website stating that your membership for last year (e.g. 2011-2012) has expired. If you have renewed in the last three months, you are good for the next year, 2012-2013.

If you have not renewed in the last three months, you TWRC membership has now expired and you will need to renew to be considered a member for 2012-2013.

As of July 1st, over 140 individuals and families have renewed for 2012-2013.

TWRC Membership Drive and Social Luke's Locker on Thursday, June 14 2012 from 6-8 p.m.

It is already June and time for our annual membership renewal. We will be having a general membership meeting/social at Luke's Locker on Thursday, June 14 from 6-8 p.m. You can kick off the night by running in the Thursday Luke's run at 6:15 and then do a little shopping and socializing afterwards. Luke's will provide a 20% discount that night to club members. In addition, Luke's will provide adult beverages and waters and the club will provide sandwiches.

Now is the time to renew! In previous years, the June social was a great opportunity to renew your membership. With the advent of the convenience of online renewal via the TWRC website, we encourage members to renew and update their information online going forward. As an added incentive, we will be holding a drawing for some Luke's gift cards to those who have renewed their membership online PRIOR to the meeting. (You do not need to be present to win.) Just as a reminder, if you have not renewed your membership since April 1, 2012, it will expire at the end of June.

Also, our scholarship recipients are invited to this event and Willie Fowlkes from The Woodlands Marathon will be in attendance. We will be raffling off free entries to the event. See you then!

Did you get an email with the subject line above? These are going out to most club members automatically (you may get a second notice around the 12th of June). The emails are a reminder that your club membership “role” is expiring July 1st 2012. The email states you need to renew the role but in fact once you renew, you will be granted a new role for 2012-2013. This means you will be a member of the club and have rights to access the members only part of the website.

Post-Race notes from Randy

I want to thank all of you again for all the hard work you did under very hot conditions. Perhaps one of the volunteers on the last shift summed it up quite well when they said, "I have not trained hard enough for this volunteer work". We in no way come close to what each of the athletes endured yesterday, but it was still a minimum of four hours in the heat and sun working for each of you. The awards ceremony Sunday was nice having the athletes and the Ironman staff recognize all the hard work that performed by all of the volunteers and the vital role that they play in the success of Ironman Texas.

I was hopeful that I could tell you that our aid station had won an award but unfortunately, we did not. There is always next year and I hope each of you managed to have some fun while volunteering Saturday.

Last but definitely not least, I want to thank my two co-captains, Kristin and Michael Collins. It has been such a relief this year having them to help me from the very beginning. There is a lot of effort that goes into finding and organizing volunteers and to designing and implementing a theme for the aid station. Kristin not only came up with the theme but also made the signs and got the great banners that we put on the truck and the signpost on the north side of the street. Michael helped me keep my sanity in so many ways as we started trying to find volunteers and going to the meeting with me. He also provided the prospective of what we needed to do from the viewpoint of a person who has competed 12 Ironmen events. As if that was not enough they were both there from 6:00 am until we finished the clean up last night filling in working any jobs that needed someone. Thank you both again for your support and hard work.

I will be back in contact with you all once there are any updates from Ironman about sign up for Ironman 2013 and when volunteer registration for 2013 opens up.

-Randy Bradley
