What is an Iron Man Contest?
An extreme challenge for the supremely fit, the Ironman Triathlon consists of a 2.4-mile (3.9-kilometer) swim, a 112-mile (180-kilometer) bike ride and a 26.2-mile (42.1-kilometer) run. The idea for the Ironman began as a challenge among a group of Navy SEALs who debated which sport was more physically demanding, running or swimming.
How is the Iron Man Contest related to finishing strong in District One?
District 1 Iron Man Finish Strong Campaign is built on the sport concept. Every club is to be strong in three areas: membership renewals, membership growth, and DCP goals. The goal for the 2013-2014 is for District One to be number one in the world, which will require Iron Man Strength in the three. It is extreme because we are pushing for all clubs to be strong in building membership and club excellence (DCP Program) in three months.
When will the contest start? The week of March 16, 2014.
What are the incentives and gifts? The incentives are pins for the Treasurers, participation in District Video, gift certificates for the clubs, and free admissions to the DCP Mixer, Division Contests, and Spring Conference.
Who can win the gifts and incentives? Club Coaches, Distinguished or Better Clubs that meet the membership requirements, Presidents, Vice Presidents of Education, Vice Presidents of Membership and Treasurers.
What are the qualifications? The qualifications are Distinguished Club status or better, nomination for a monthly award, and membership growth by selected deadlines.
How will the winners be selected?
The names of members who serve as Club Coach, President, Vice President of Education, Vice President of Membership and Treasurer will be placed in a drawing to receive admission to the Division Spring Contests and District 1 Spring Conference.
