Yup, you heard it here first, unsurprisingly. TriTalk.co.uk is now a BTA affiliated club for the 2006/2007 season. Megaphone

This means you can list TriTalk.co.uk as your club on the membership form and it'll save you a tenner!

I have a feeling that there will be a few in your situation... nowt I can do about it, sorry. You could always try calling the BTA and explaining the situation to them?

Hanna, darling, you are, as always, a fountain of knowledge both useful and valuable (as well as having the most famous bottom on the website - I must work out how to post those pictures of your front soon )

A very stupid question, I am sure but...

What does this mean for 'us' by which I mean the unaffiliated lot who usually enter ourselves as clubless. Does this mean that we will now come up with a club name agaist out entry, or, based on the last post, does it mean that we have some sort of 'qualifing' membership with the BTA which allows entry on that rate, rather than paying the day rate each time?

I am sure this is not the case, as otherwise there would probably be more than a tenner involved, but prehaps you could expand a little?

For your stats, I am from the seaside town of Seaford, 35 ( well 36 soon ) and known, in the real world, as Ian Woodward.

See you at the Seaford Tri in September, if not before.

Thanks for the update.

Some important points..

You can pretty much use any club name when you register for a race, it pretty meaningless. For example want to be a winner, race for Chelsea FC - of course the trademark holder might object, on the other hand if you want to list your club as Seaford Tri Club....

When you join the BTA, you can list a club. in this case TriTalk.co.uk - in the old days your membership form had to go via the club secretary to sign to verify you were a member, but not anymore. As far as I know(as a former club Chairman) there is no check these days, you just join the BTA.

Now, assuming you actually ARE a club member, then you have to join the club. In this case Tritalk.co.uk doesn't charge.

Of course you can still be a BTA member and not a club member, or vice versa.

The club has a formal recognition in the proposals for a new triathlon england and BTF, but I need to read the latest documents to see what if any impact a large "virtual" club could have. I see the clause about the number of votes per members has been removed. I also can't recall what it said about clubs/regions.

There is a reduced membership charge for joining the BTA if you are a member of a recognised club.

In this case then by being a 'member' of tritalk then it doesn't cost you anything, so you just get the saving. Most other clubs would want some sort of membership fee.

Is there any benefit to being an independent BTA member, such as Duncan is, over being a TT member and a BTA member and getting 10 discount? Because they sent me a new BTA card which lists my old club (despite there being nothing listed on their web site under my profile (I must have ticked the "just take the money on renewal" box as I wasn't going to join for '06/07)). So I'll phone them and get the club changed changed. I was going to pay the other 10 and be an independent member but if there's no benefit in it I'll bung down TT.

I'm a member of Hillingdon Triathletes - it was effectively free - the membership is 10 which is exactly what you save in BTA membership by being a member of an affiliated club.

So by this argument Tritalk is paying you 10 to be a member.

Not that I'm going to join BT, triathlonScotland do a grand job and no interest in age group quals mean I don't need to. (Sense Tritraveller climbing on soapbox as we speak).

I think most of the folks in Scotland are actually attached to a club with a few exceptions (like me whose attached to two), however if you put down tritalk when you join triscotland as your club and then enter it when entering races, tritalk will be eligible to score points in the Scottish club championships. It would be nice to see.

Ray - it costs you nothing to be a member of TriTalk.co.uk

If you choose to affiliate with the BTA then you can do so as a club member and therefore at a reduced rate.
