Rotary Club of Carpinteria Mans Water Station for City Triathlon

Volunteers hand off water to the racers during the sprint competition

The City of Carpinteria and the Rotary Club of Carpinteria joined forces at the city’s annual triathlon held Sunday at Carpinteria State Beach.

With several hundred competitors enrolled in various categories, the event was a great success for the city’s Parks & Recreation Department, the recipient of the funds from the registration and sponsorships.

The Rotary Club of Carpinteria volunteered to get water out to the racers during the sprint competition, on an unusually warm day.

Thanks to volunteers Dave Durflinger, Harry Harper, Erin and Megan Durflinger, Michael Ensign and Lin Graf for handing off water to the participants, as they whizzed by their station.

— Pat Kistler is the public relations coordinator for the Rotary Club of Carpinteria.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
