Space Dragons,

Congratulations to all Tempe paddlers, great job!  For those who couldn't be there, hope you're well-rested and ready for more serious work!


  • Great job, everyone!  Check out a summary of the results here, stay tuned for results with times from the organizers
  • Check out and purchase pictures from the official Festival photographer here
  • Please help the organizers to improve the festival, take survey here
  • If you did not get your medal(s), Pearl will have them at F&FD this Sunday

  • There is NO practice this Saturday, 4/2
  • Wednesday evening practices will start 4/13, 6 PM

3.  F&FD -- this Sunday, 4/3
  • It is just around the corner, so if you and/or your friends have not RSVP'd, please do so on the Evite
  • Please let Denise know ASAP what you're bringing for the potluck if you have not already
  • Remember to bring enough to cover your guest(s) as well if they're not bringing a dish
  • Please bring your extra equipment (paddles, PFDs) if you have them
    • Lights, camera, action!...
      They'll be plenty of action come F&F day but we'll need your help to make it awesome! So we're calling all Space Dragons with abled buff bods and video cameras. In short, we need 8 camera toting operators to follow each race team and document their progress. Other things we will need as well are volleyballs, frisbees, and a hockey goal net. Please email Devant if you can help out in any of the aforementioned ways or have any of the items listed!

  • To commemorate our 10th year, we've designed a special edition shirt/jersey (see attached picture, remove "ng" from extension)
  • The following are 3 options and their approximate prices
    1. Silkscreen cotton t-shirt: $20
    2. Silkscreen dri-fit jersey: $30
    3. Dye-sublimated dri-fit jersey: $40
  • Note that options 1 and 2 require a minimum combined order of 20 pieces
  • If you would like to order 1 (or more), please email Pearl with: type, size, quantity
  • These may be worn in place of the team jersey on Saturdays (only) for the remaining 2011 tournaments
  • Please let Pearl know by COB this Sunday 4/3.  Sorry for the short notice, we're trying to get these printed by Baby LB

5.  OC-2 TESTING -- Sunday 4/10

  • Testing for Baby LB boat seating
  • OC-2 testing is mandatory to be considered for Red
  • OC-2 testing is also a great way to gauge your progress/improvement
  • Sign up on  here
  • If you absolutely cannot make this date, please email coaches to make arrangements

6.  YARD SALE -- Saturday 4/23
  • Spring yard sale to raise funds -- proceeds WILL help lower tournament fees
