2007: A Great Year

In grand Space Dragons fashion, we closed out 2007 with a festive banquet (click here for pics) on 12/8/07 ...(please upload photos to our picasa webalbum so everyone can enjoy them! Contact Janet for login info.)

Since messages are best conveyed with visuals, feast your eyes (and ears) on our year-end video:

As the video describes, 2007 was a great year for the team because of each & every one of our team members (YOU!).

We could have spent time @ the banquet describing every single person's contributions - but just know that everyone contributed to the best year this team has ever had.

Whether it was:
  • a leader coordinating a tournament or event,
  • a coach helping everyone improve & plan strategy,
  • a willing volunteer to help make things happen,
  • a video-taper / photographer,
  • an encourager,
  • a reliable & coachable paddler,
  • a guest paddler or newbie,
  • etc (you get the point!) ...

We did it together and we had a blast doing it ...

As we progress forward, let's continue to put in the work & strive for competitive excellence - but lets always remember that without the special fun & camaraderie ... it just ain't worth it!

With 2008 on the horizon, let's continue to make this team the best it can be.
And to put simply ... let's continue to make it something that just helps all of us be happy & healthy.
