Triathlon starts with a 6mile swim in the Comal River rolls into Gruene with a bicycle race toward Canyon Dam and returns for a fivemile run along Common St The race begins at 8 Race directors Michael and Carolyn Burrow said the profits from the triathlon will benefit projects of the New Braunfels Evening Rotary the targetyoca Upnat at Braunfels Cahyoh and Smithson Valley high schools and will sup port international student exchange programs The NB Triathlon has grown annually during the past seven years Carolyn Burrow said This race has become popular with triathletes What The seventh Annual New Braunfeis Triathlon Sunday April begins at S am with swim at Corjfial Rtver IWhwes Landa HarK Hinman island from all over the state and beyond for several Burrow said Of course they all like to have a reason to corrie visit New Braunfels butweve always made it a policy of putting ath letes first We not only take every precaution to ensure its a safe race but we try to ensure that all of athletes get recognition for Each person who completes the rigorous course receives a Finisher The overall male and female winners earn awards and the top three in each of the 12 age groups for men and women receive steins Middle of the pack competitors and the last place finisher also are recognized The racers will converge at a central site on Hinman Island after swimming the Comal Riv er New construction by Schlitterbahn dictated the move to this where the racers mount their bicycles for the second phase of the triathlon The course moves along Common St to FM 306 to a 10mile turnaround point and back to the transition area where bikes are racked and running shoes are exchanged foe cycling shoes The run continues along Common St to Peace Avel and Af turnaround at Mather St brings the runners back to the finish line on Hinman Island Drive Burrow described the races transition phas es as a wellchoreographed with each racer knowing his part and all the details coori dinated and falling into place We intentionally moved our race to early Spring to avoid the heavier traffic that conies with tourist season Burrow said With the race starting at 8 on Sunday morning and ending by were trying to be as considerate as possible of our fellow citizens We do want people to be aware that Common Street in particular will be tied up from Liberty Street to FM The street will not be closed to vehicle traffic but we will have police officers posted to stop traffic on the cross streets as necessary to allow the throughithoiintersectionR unobi stationed at Old t FM 306 and Hunter Road and traffic may be stopped at the junction two places on FM 306 near Old 306 and near the Montessori school Local sponsors include Tree Tops Riverside Grill Molly Joes and Duckys ease some old hassles Keith Warren As of this coming Aug there will be no more hunting or fishing licenses issued as we have known in the past Taking their place is a new consumptive outdoor use permit The new permit will look similar to a cash register receipt To purchase the new permit individuals will have to submit proof of residency to ven dors along with their request for specific stamps saltwater freshwater trout These specific items will appear on the new permit similar to merchandise on a cash register receipt The permit will measure 3 inches by eight inches Depending upon the amount of merchandise purchased a second piece of paper may be fssued This new system was developed to make it easier for the Texas Parks Wildlife Department There will be less paper work involved for the seller It will be much faster to issue than the previous license The license holder will no longer be required to sign each of the tags Non residents will be able to purchase their permits at any place that sells resident per mits Plus at any given time it will be possible to get an accurate report on not only the number of permits issued but a better picture of the user such as age gen der and residency There will be drawbacks such as keep ing up with the tags The old license had detachable tags The new system will have tags Howev er removal of certain tags will turn one piece of paper your permit into two pos sibly three or more Keeping up with tags will be a problem Remember to pick up the heavy paper envelope license holder at the vendor issuing the permit In addition the new permit will not be waterproof as the previous licenses have been Another drawback as I see it is that it will be easy to misplace this new permit Remember it will look like a bland piece of paper not an easily recognizable docu ment as in the past Come Sept well all be required to cany this new permit Im sure that there will be some draw backs with the new system but we 11 all have to learn to accept them Boy how things are changing Keith Warren is the host of The Texas Angler television show which broadcasts statewide For information contact The Texas Angler at 210 Brooks swings into Masters AUQUSTA Ga AP r Considering the surroundings Augusta National Golf Club might seem a bizarre backdrop for experi mentation The Masters Tournament after all is an event where nostalgia is celebrated tradition is paramount and change usually is limited to the analysts chair in the CBS television tow er But to Mark Brooks this seems like the ideal spot to roll the dice A look at the Fort Worth residents 1996 season and past track record at Augusta explains why Brooks for the first time in six visits heads into Masters week with a victory under his belt during the same calendar year and a Top 10 spot on the season earnings list His hot start has convinced the Richland High School and University of Texas product that he can adopt the Frank Sinatra method this week around Amen Corner Cue the prelude to My because Brooks for the first time since making his Augusta debut in 1989 is not tweaking his game to fit the sloping contours and light ningquick greens of the par72 layout when his tee time arrives for Thurs days opening round He hopes the expression of independence will help him improve his Masters scoring average of strokes which includes only one subpar round in 12 attempts He has made the cut only once Ive committed to take a little different approach at Augusta Im going to try my best not to make any adjustments in my game for the said Brooks Basketball
