GTC competition and raffle winners

Enthusiastic club members enjoyed two recent contests, the GTC Big Bobble Hat Selfie Competition and the GTC Flapjack Competition. There was also a raffle as part of the AGM.

GTC Big Bobble Hat Selfie competition

There were three winners in the GTC Big Bobble Hat Selfie competition. They all win… another Big Bobble Hat!

Mark Cohen: Cold water swimmer extraordinaire.
New baby Rowan. (Hat to be collected by mum Jo Gemmell).
Margaret MacIntosh, who posed for her selfie with sister Anne O’Hagan.

A winner was chosen each by Sarah and Jenifer, who look after the club’s kit, and Beatrice, who came up with the idea for the selfie competition.

Did you know that to date almost 200 GTC Big Bobble Hats have been bought? The company’s owner, Ian Hockey, has also joined our club in preparation for Ironman Wales

GTC Flapjack Competition

At the AGM, Caroline Lund won the GTC Flapjack Competition and took home a bottle of prosecco for her triumph.

The contest was judged by James Streetley, a GTC member and Triathlon Scotland technical official of the year.

Unfortunately, president Sean has wiped photos of the winning flapjack from his phone… Caroline, you will need to make another batch so we can see how delicious it looks.

AGM raffle winner

The AGM raffle saw Catherine Macneil win a month of free training. She has been busy attending as many sessions as possible in February.
