Results  – Membership Fees - Pub Run –- Training Over Festive Season– ASA & TSA Licenses


ATC Pub Run
A reminder of our Pub Run, taking place tomorrow (Tuesday) from the Green Point Cricket Club, at 18:00.  Perhaps a warm-up lap around the field followed by a plyometric drink in the GPCC bar.  We will visit a few pubs along the seaboard and in the Waterfront before finishing at Extrablatt on Somerset Road.  Please bring cash for the drinks as we won’t be in one place long enough to run a tab (no pun intended).
Please wear ATC kit for the run! 
Membership Fees & Levies
Our club membership fees will increase on 1 January 2018. The new fees, approved at the ATC AGM, held on 26 July 2017, are shown in the table below, which also includes a history of membership fees since 2014:
Junior / Scholar
Subject to Training and Assistance Levy
ATC has two levies, which have been introduced over time to cover hard costs of our activities:
The Training Levy (R50 per season) was introduced in 2014 for canal swimmers to cover the costs of safety and access control equipment purchased for the canal swim.  When Green Point Athletics Track started charging us for lights in July 2017, the committee decided to impose this levy on Track Runners as well.  Up to now we have been quite lenient in terms of enforcing this levy.  However, to date we have covered less than half of the major expenses incurred for these two training sessions.  We will therefore be stricter with this and will build a check into the sign in system to verify that members have paid the levy.  This levy will increase to R80 from the 1st of January 2018.
The Helpers Levy (ATC Assist, R100 per year), was approved at the 2016 AGM but has not been enforced yet.  This levy has been orderable from our on-line shop since 1 August 2017.  Members have a choice to either volunteer their services on two occasions during the year, or to pay the ATC Assist Levy.  These funds will enable us to hire casuals to assist in place of volunteers.  In January 2018 we will make an on-line booking system available for members to volunteer at our training sessions and / or events.  Members who have not signed up to volunteer by the end of January will be automatically billed for the levy.
These levies will NOT apply to the ATC MS Junior, Student or Country Memberships.  However, Country members, who attend the Canal or Track sessions from time to time, will be requested to pay the Training Levy.  Country members, who live with the Cape Town Unicity District will also be required to aid or pay the ATC Assist Levy.  Pensioners are not required to pay the levies.  Any member with a compelling reason not to pay the levy may apply for exemption from the ATC Committee.
ASA Running Licenses
2018 ASA Licenses are not available yet.  2017 ASA Licenses will be valid till the end of January 2018.  There are still some 2017 licenses available if you would like to purchase one for events up to the end of January 2018.

WC Triathlon League & TSA Licenses
The Western Cape Triathlon Age Grouper’s League point standings will, hopefully, be published this week by CTUTA.  This League is sponsored by ATC and will include all TSA / CTUTA sanctioned events within the Western Cape as well as events further afield, in which a considerable number of WC Triathletes participate.  It has been quite a challenge to determine to best way to calculate point allocation, given the disparate categories at events and varying formats of the results.  Initial point standings will be provisional to give licensed athletes a chance to verify their results.  To give you an indication of the allocation, we have included points for the Slanghoek Triathlons in our Results Blog for this event:  You can view this here:  https://www.atcmultisport.club/about/blog/2017/10/30/22-oct-%E2%80%9817-results-%E2%80%93-slanghoek
Please note that if you do not hold a TSA Recreational or Racing license, your points will not be pulled through to the League results.  All 2017 TSA Licenses have now expired so if your TSA number does not end with a /18, your points will expire at the end of this year.  Due to the TSA Membership System changes this season, all 2017 licenses, which should have expired on 31 August 2017 were extended to 1 December 2017.  These licenses must now be renewed through one of the CTUTA Affiliated Clubs.  ATC members can purchase the license from Tri SPaza.

Coronation Double Century
The Coronation Double Century, which took place on Saturday, 25 November, was a huge success for ATC, with all four our teams finishing with all 12 riders.  Embark also had four teams representing but a crash took out some of the Northern Suburbs’ riders so that team did not finish with all 12 riders.  One of the Embark Southern Suburbs Team members, Amanda Cardenas, was unfortunately hospitalised the week before the event so that team only started with 11 riders.  In true DC spirit, they picked up another rider along the way and helped him to the finish to become the only team to start with 11 riders but finish with 12! 
A special word of thanks goes to our teams’ supporters, who had a long day out there in the sun and traffic:  Amanda Bloch, Hazel McQueen, Jessica Hopley, Leonie Hurter, Lindsay Cilliers, Lisa Lawson and Zameer Osman.
All-in-all, ATC had almost 150 riders at the event.  Further down you will find the results of all the ATC and Embark Teams.  Results of all the ATC’ers who rode for other teams have been posted on our on-line Blog at:
Torpedo SwimRun
The Torpedo SwimRun, held on Sunday 19 November, was, once again, a fantastic event!  The sea was a bit warmer than with the February event, but the high swell brought adventure into the swim legs.  Congratulations to Team We're gonna bee flamous, with Linda Detering and Bianca Tarboton who won the ladies category.  Team Labradors, with Karen Graaff and Jaqueline Vockins was 3rd in this category.  The Rock Lobsters with Nolan Steele and Birgitt Ouweneel was the 3rd Mixed Team.

Race 2 Stanford
The inaugural Race2Stanford (R2S), which took place on Saturday 18 November, turned out to be a tough and challenging Ultra Distance Triathlon through Hermanus, the Hemel & Aarde valley and the Stanford village.  Browsing through the bike splits will reveal how the hills and wind took its toll on the Triathletes.
Congratulations to Anton Du Plessis who won the Masters Category and Martha Thom who won the Female Veteran Category.  Piet Viljoen was the second Master.
