Are You Coming Out To Practice? Remember To Fill Out Our Practice Polls

2018 Pre-Season Practices started Sat November 4th!

Nov 9, 2011

SD Weekly Digest 11/9/11

Space Dragons,

1.  PRE_SEASON PRACTICES!
  • It was a wacky start to the 2012 practice schedule this last weekend, but YES, there was practice in the “rain” on Sunday.
  • Remember, refer to the RAIN protocol if in doubt!  The rain is much cleaner than what you're paddling in :)
  • Just a reminder about practice signup, YOU need to go fill out the poll NOW so we know exactly how many boats and what sizes we need.  We WILL leave you out on the beach if there's no space for you because you didn't sign up!
  • Remember it is IMPERATIVE that we ask for the exact number of boats and sizes we need since TK and Mike are generous enough to lug those steering oars from their house to the beach.
  • SO GO FILL OUT THE POLL NOW!
  • Reminder: If the Boy Scout lots are closed for dock renovation, you may park on the streets.  Let the captains know of any complaints.  Or you could utilize the Mother's Beach metered lot, remember it's free before 10 AM. 
2.  YE DINNER -- Sat 12/3
  • Time to get fabulous!  We have a great venue all to ourselves and a live band!
  • So what are you waiting for?  RSVP on the Evite now
