We are more like a big group of friends than we are a club. Nothing is official. We do weekly group open water swims and bike rides, but they are a, "Hey, who wants to go biking Saturday?" kind of thing. We have bar-b-ques in someone's backyard or reserve a room at a local restaurant a few times a year to talk about the upcoming season or the season that has passed.
Our members consist of several Ironmen, several beginners, some totally unexperienced folks, and a bunch more regular age-groupers. We range in age from 17 to 65. Some of us are pretty good, some aren't. We welcome anyone with an interest in the sport.
