TRiKC CHILLIN & GRILLIN SUMMER PICNIC AND BURGER BATTLE

It is picnic time! Join us this Sunday, July 9, 4:30pm, for the Annual TRiKC Picnic and Burger Battle!

We are firing up the grill, so you can show us your best burger.  We are half way through the triathlon season and great burgers are one of the best ways to celebrate summer cuisine. So gather up your ingredients and see if you can win TRiKC's Burger Battle! Otherwise, come taste some of the best burgers in the world and enjoy the picnic.

The Burger Battle rules are simple. You provide everything necessary to make two (2) of your prize winning burgers which must contain at least 51% beef. We provide the grill. You cook your burgers for the judges who will score your burger 1 to 10 for taste and 1 to 5 for presentation. The winner will be the declared the TRiKC Beast in the Kitchen for 2017.

For those who do not want to compete in the Burger Battle, bring whatever you would like to grill for you or our group.

What to bring to the Summer Picnic: (1) a side dish or dessert to share with fellow club members; (2) burgers, brats, hot dogs, vegetables, or whatever you want to grill for the folks in your party; (3) TRiKC will supply beer and water, you supply any other beverage of choice; and (5) your ingredients if you are entering the Burger Battle.

The Herrons are the host of this year's picnic at 11333 W. 121 Terrace, Overland Park, Kansas 66213. Click here to RSVP which is appreciated, but not required.

BRICK SESSIONS

Bike + Run + Eat. Sound like fun? It is! On Tuesdays throughout the summer and fall, TRiKC members meet at various locations in the area for an evening of cycling followed by a run. Brick by Brick we improve our conditioning and build a brick hard foundation. After each session, we gather at a local restaurant to socialize. Multisport athletes of all abilities are welcome to join us. It is a great way to get to know the other members, meet others who are passionate about the sport, and improve your athletic abilities, all while having fun. Check the Coming Attractions page for the time and location of our next Brick. There is no better way to spend a Tuesday evening.
