SF Paddlers Party


See info below regarding SF Paddler's Party this year! Always a good time, especially to mingle w/ other folks in the DB community - and maybe you can be this year's Ed and bring home a new carbon fiber paddle from the raffle.

Please RSVP via the evite that will be sent out w/ the weekly email digest this week. We need headcount ASAP (before 9/24) . If you can't make it, respond "No" on the evite so I don't have to guess or track you down personally.


Attention Treasure Island Visiting Team Captains:

Have your team experience a San Francisco welcome by joining us on Friday October 3rd from 5-9pm for our Welcome Mixer to kickoff the dragon boat festival. This year the event will be at 111 Minna Gallery at 2nd Street between Howard and Mission (, just a mile from the Hilton Financial District Hotel. For $5 USD, you'll get VIP entry which includes drink specials, appetizers, raffle prizes, and a chance to meet and hang out with other visiting and local teams before the festival. There will be musical entertainment by Look Out Weekend and the live bands of the Women's Audio Mission. Please note that because of the venue all attendees must be 21 and over, and IDs will be checked at the door.

Drink Specials:
Beer: $3
Special Treasure Island drink: $5
Well drinks: $1 off (regularly about $6)
Call drinks: $2 off (regularly about $9)

This year, we'll be providing tickets to teams in advance to help speed up entry into the event. Please notify me at no later than Wednesday, September 24th with the number of tickets for your team. You will need to pre-arrange with me to exchange your payment for the tickets either at your team practice or at the hotel on Thursday or Friday. Each person must have a ticket for entry.

In past years, this event has sold out, so please sign-up early to ensure that you'll be able to join us for this fun event!
