Space Dragons and the Scissored Wizard

No, its not the name of the latest J.K Rowling book nor is it the name for the next SD mascot (or IS it?)--its the latest volunteer adventure that the mighty Space Dragons took part in post-Christmas morning. In typical Space Dragons style, we mixed our tradition of work and fun while braving the cold morning elements--armed with glue, seeds, coffee, and SD spirit the crazy gang of paddlers flew through piles of foam decorative pieces and helped out as needed to get "The Scissored Wizard" float of La Cañada Flintridge beautified and ready for the 121st annual Pasadena Tournament of Roses parade. A Southern California tradition as typical as Jason wearing excruciatingly short shorts, the Rose Parade once again featured the beautiful pageantry and tradition of magnificent floral floats, high-stepping equestrians and spirited marching bands.

The results you ask? Apparently, the Space Dragons aren't just versed in bringing in "bling-bling" from paddling tournaments but also in Rose Parade tournaments. Our collective efforts in this operation helped the city of La Cañada Flintridge win the Fantasy Trophy for 2010!
