This Sunday : Patanella’s Buckman Sprint Triathlon

Don’t forget this Sunday Sept 16th starting at 8am is Patanella’s Buckman Sprint Triathlon.  We know race director Joe Patanella puts on really fun events and this one should be no different.  Additionally, the forecast for Sunday is looking fantastic.  A nice cool high of 72 °F.

And remember CJTC will have our tent setup with burgers and hotdogs for during and after the race with plenty of cold beverages.  Enjoy a great morning outside with your fellow CJTC members.  We will be setting up the club tent on the southern side of the parking lot (your right side as you face the beach from the parking lot).  See you at the race!
