What’s Happening in Z World, Monday, July 13 – Wednesday, July 15


Important Announcements and Reminders for Monday through Wednesday of this week



  • The “All Hands on” Happy Hour at Cheesecake Factory Tysons is almost here! (AKA “ Watch Coach Alexis inhale an entire cheesecake in one sitting”¦easily” Happy Hour)

This is an “I gotta find a way to attend!!” type of event. We want to welcome all the new Zers to the team, plus we like seeing all the veteran Zers, so we’ve started a new custom of having an “All Hands” Team Z happy hour the first recovery week after a kickoff. The last combined happy hour was a smashing success and so much fun. This one will be even better! The arrangements have already been made so turn in your leave slips and get out of work early.  Take the Silver line, carpool, bike, inline skate, Segway, uber, zip car, Elliptigo your way to Tysons Galleria.  We know that Tysons may not be convenient for you, but please make the effort to attend anyway. I promise you won’t be disappointed!


When: Wednesday July 15 from 5-8:00 PM

Where: The Cheesecake Factory

Address: Tysons Galleria, 1796 International Dr, McLean, VA 22102

Phone: (703) 506-9311

Directions: http://locations.thecheesecakefactory.com/va/McLean-66.html/


  • But wait! There’s more”¦Challenge Roth Raffle tickets  available at the Happy Hour

In order to provide an incentive to attend happy hour (as if you really need one); we will be selling raffle tickets for the free entry to Challenge Roth 2016. Tickets are $5 a piece, but if you attend happy hour, we’ve decided to make it worth your while. This is what we can do for you:

2 tickets $5

5 tickets for $10

12 tickets for $20

You say you don’t know what “Challenge Roth” is all about? Check out this link: http://www.challenge-family.com/challenge-roth/

Also check out the Challenge Roth info noted on the July 15 posting to the Team Z member’s only website: https://members.triteamz.com/

If, for some crazy reason, you can’t make it to happy hour, here’s what you can do:

1) Email RSVP@triteamz.com by noon on Wednesday, July 15 with how many tickets you plan to purchase. No discount if you pay online so it would be $5 per ticket purchased.

2) Go to PayPal and use the email address coached@triteamz.com to pay for your raffle tickets by noon of July 15. We’ll make sure your raffle tickets are included in the raffle.

Boom! You’re done!
