SD Digest 3/28/12

Hooray, It’s Digest Day! 
Word of the week: Taper!  ...  (double hooray!)
1.  TemPEEEE – 3/31
  • Did you pay your tournament fees? Of course you did! Right!?!?
  • Watch out for the LOGISTICS email! Many important details in there.
  • TAPER does not mean NAP, here's what it means:
           * Keep up light workouts focus on oxygen/endurance (running, jogging, cycling, swimming, treadmill)
           * Eat well, good nutritive food
           * Rest!
2.  Baby LONG BEACH – Sun 4/29
  • We're registered for 3 boats. That means YOU should sign up on the Evite!
  • It's just around the corner!
3.  PORTLAND - June 9 & 10
  • Guarantee your spot on the boat by letting us know your flight/travel plans on Evite. Just saying "yes" does not guarantee a paddling spot!
  • We have a full boat of participants already, let's make it TWO! Ripple has 2 boats going, so can we!
  • 1st boat Roster will be capped at 22 paddlers. Will register a 2nd boat at 35 confirmed paddlers
  • SO, if you already have your flight, update the Evite, if not, GET A FLIGHT and update Evite to secure your spot, NOW!
 4.  FRIENDS AND FAMILY DAY – April 7, 1pm
  • Great opportunity to introduce your friends and co-workers to what you spend so much time and effort on.
  • Join the FB Event and share it with them.
  • Easy, friendly afternoon time, hooray!
  • Be a peach and email  captains  if you are coming and/or bringing people! Don't worry, we know some people will flake and so the numbers might be a little off - but we still need a plan for the estimated number of people attending.
