Exceeding Expectations joins the
L.A. Tri Club
at the
USA Triathlon "Pumpkin Man" Club Nationals
October 18, 2008 -- Lake Mead, NV


The good people of the L.A. Tri Club, always great friends of the kids, combined fundraising for their participation in the
club nationals with support of Exceeding Expectations.

In addition to raising money for the program,
they invited Cherie and some EE team members to compete
with them against other tri clubs from around the country.

Great friend of the kids Mike Donia,

...and he gets things off to a huge start.

And then Cherie. She finished the Ironman six days ago but
nobody cut her any slack.

A happy crew


The L.A. Tri Club team which, by the way,
took first place overall in the national club competition!



Things were jumping at the "Pink Taco" nightclub
at the Hard Rock in Las Vegas

A splendid time was had by all!
And, by the way, the L.A. Tri Club raised
Ten Thousand Dollars
