Viper X Short Sleeve Swimskins Discount Code
A small shipment of our brand new Viper X Short Sleeve Swimskins just arrived (ahead of schedule and in time for Christmas)! ROKA is excited to let Team Nebraska Triathlon (TNT) athletes know first since this is a built-for-speed suit that's right up your alley.

Your team code "T-TNT-25" will be good for 25% off, and orders will qualify for FREE 2-DAY SHIPPING (US Lower 48 only) so you can get them by Christmas. Can you forward this to the team list so everyone can take advantage?

Here are some features that will be real difference-makers:

Arms-up design for ultimate shoulder flexibility.
Patent-pending IXI core support taping to discourage "snaking" (especially as you fatigue). Never forget: in the water, BODY LINE = SPEED!

Developed specifically to be worn with our Gen II Tri Apparel. Our pros have already started testing kit+swimskin combinations. Hint: the most popular one so far is Viper X Short Sleeve Swimskin + Gen II Elite Aero Short Sleeve Tri Suit (pulled all the way up but unzipped in front) and yes, this is the same tri suit Cameron Wurf wore en route to his record-setting 4:12:54 bike split in Kona.

Happy holidays,

Discussion: Kendra has application for EIN to apply for non- profit status. Historically, the club never got NP status. Our EIN IS inactive and we need to reapply. Benefits of NP Status: 1. No tax on revenue, 2. Can accept donations. 3. Less liability.
Prior to submission we must have our Articles of Incorporation and Club Bylaws completed.
The board agreed to keep the Articles of Incorporation separate from Club Bylaws.
During the meeting we began drafting the Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws. Included was further refinement of the board positions, which were approved unanimously by the board.

Swim training location, swim permits

Group workouts
This agenda item was not discussed and will be deferred to our next meeting.
We did discuss membership meetings twice a year- spring and fall; these can be social events with training or coaching presentations, giveaways etc. Kendra, will coordinate. We agreed to plot out details at our next meeting because we feel this needs to occur pre-season.
Insurance This agenda item was not discussed and will be deferred to our next meeting.
