Hello Space Dragons, welcome to another installment of the SD Digest. Let's get right to it, shall we?
Holy moly Tempe is just around the corner now!
That's right, kids. March 31/April 1. Do you have your carpool buddies and lodging situations sorted out? If not, email captains and we'll set you up with some bunk mates and/or put you in touch with teammates who live near you for carpool. Rather have your own room? There are still 5 rooms available in the Space Dragons room block at your hotel. Check the Evite for details.
We still have room for more paddlers, so it's not too late to sign up and join in the fun! Tempe is our season-opener and always a guaranteed good time. Sign up on Evite!
Come with us to the land of big fat dragon boats, gravity-defying flag-catching, great coffee, awesome breweries. At least that's what Brianne tells us.
June 9-10, which seems like a long time but believe me, it's gonna creep up with the quickness! Sign up via Evite!
3. 2012 DUES
Ok folks, let me be straight with you guys. I don't like this part of being a captain. I don't like asking people for money. But Space Dragons needs money to keep paying for registration for tournaments and everything else we do. Baby Long Beach seems far away in May, but we are already gearing up to pay and register for it as a team. So do you part and pay your dues!
2012 dues are $100. Please pay your past dues and tournament fees as well. If you are not sure if you owe back-fees, please email Denise. Even if we don't like to nag and ask for money, believe me... we'll hunt you down (this is said with a non-menacing smiley face).
4. WEEKDAY WORKOUTS
FYI! The Space Dragons Weekday Workouts are ON! Email Devant for South Pasadena and Em/Galenfor South Bay. GET YOUR BEAST ON!
5. SD BOARD GAME NIGHT
What: Board Game Night
When: 4:00pm, Sunday February 19, 2012
Where: Zina and Andy's place.
Why: Team bonding time! And do you really need an excuse to come hang out with your lovely teammates?
Parking will be free for Game Night guests. More details to follow on Evite.
What to bring: Potluck-style snacks and drinks. Bring some Scooby snacks for yourself, a little more to share. More details about dinner will be sent through the Evite. Maybe also your favorite board game from home. Perhaps a little cash for a Yogurtland run. Or Little Tokyo bar hopping.
But, you know what you need to do now? Mark it on your calendar and save the date. Then look out for that detailed Evite you are now oh-so excited to be receiving soon.
6. JERSEY ORDER
If your name is Allan, Gerard, Gracey, Henry, James or Jill, check the attached spreadsheet to confirm your order. If it is correct, then no action is necessary. If you order is not correct, I strongly suggest you email Galen to correct your order.
If your name is not listed above and you want to order a jersey, email Galen. Orders will be put in next week, so talk to Galen!
These are the new very slick looking blue jerseys we started wearing at the end of 2011. Want to see a sample? Email Captains, let us know (a) what size, and (b) long sleeve, short sleeve, or no sleeves. We will coordinate with other teammates get someone to bring out the right size for you to try on at practice.
7. LADIES NIGHT
If you are a member of the fairer sex, Marina is setting up the next Ladies' Night for March 10. If you are not sure whether you belong to the fairer sex, believe me when I say that you don't. Save the date!
