Who or what does the tandem club represent? *LINK*

I am intrigued to understand the real point of the tandem club. I had assumed it was to promote and encourageall things of interest to tandem owners and to encourage others to get involved.

I am therefore surprised that I find no mention anywhere on this site of this weekend's (July 5) Bishops Castle tandem triathlon (http://www.southshropshire.gov.uk/static/page3873.htm), or the accompanying tandem festival(http://www.tandeming.co.uk/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=73&Itemid=148).

The triathlon is the only event of its type in the UK and is now in its 23rd year. I am sure the two or three annual tandem club national event are pretty popular, but I suspect that the Bishops Castle event is one of very few to attract up to 140 tandems in the same place at the same time. I think teh tandem club even sends a representative.

Surely it only makes sense for the tandem club to support and encourage this event (if only from the point of view of recruiting tandem club members). So why no mention or promotion on this web site?
