2011 S.W.A.T. Jeremy Katzenberger Memorial Triathlon

Swimming/Biking/Running Friends-

Many of you have come to look forward to The Weatherby Lake Tri as a fun/casual way to end the season. This year, organizers have decided to partner with an incredible organization at Weatherby Lake (Supporting Weatherby’s Adopted Troops) to help memorialize the tenth anniversary of the September 11th tragedy; as well as honor the recent passing of one of our local heroes, Staff Sgt Jeremy Katzenberger. As part of this partnership, they are formalizing the event (a little), opening registration up beyond Weatherby Lake, and throwing a BBQ competition and picnic after the tri to fill everyone up after a tough race!

There is a short course (only shorter swim), long course, and team event which will compete on the long course. They are looking for over 50 participants, so please pass this info along to your friends that would enjoy, and sign up soon! The registration fee includes entry into the event and the picnic afterwards, and a commemorative t-shirt. This will be a lot of fun for a fantastic cause, and great work-out. Both beginner and experienced triathletes (and BBQ eaters) will enjoy the day!

A couple important details:
1) Registration and body-marking on 9/11 will begin around 8am, and the first wave will go off at 9am.
2) Please make your checks payable to “SWAT” and email/snail-mail your completed form to Sue Genske

Please direct questions to Sue Genske (816-695-2171) and stay tuned for updates and more information about the event on 9/11/11.
