SD Digest 4/18/12

Space Dragons!
Holy moly, what do you know? BABY LONG BEACH is only 1.5 weeks away.  Informal poll at practice revealed that nearly everyone has not yet paid their tournament fees! So pay up! Because next week, I'm publishing names in the Digest.  This week, I'll play nice and just say... write a check payable to Space Dragons for $25. And don't forget your annual dues ($100) if you haven't already paid.
Word of the Day; PAY UP! (ok, it's words of the day today...)
   Keep the Space Dragons running like the well-oiled machine that it is.
And now onto our regularly scheduled programming:
1.  BABY LONG BEACH - Sun 4/29
  • 1.5 weeks away and 3 boats registered.  Room for more paddlers, so sign up on the Evite!
  • That's only "5" practices (3 for weekend-only paddlers) before the races, so come out to practice!
  • Sign up for the Potluck on the gdocs in your weekly email!
  • Let's show our local sister teams that Tempe was no fluke. Because we are Space Dragons and WE STRIKE FEAR!
 2.  SAFETY TEST - Sat 4/21
  • No surprises here; we do this every year.  All paddlers are required to take this test.  We'll do it before we get on the boats so please be on time this weekend. We will try to get the boats on the water on time.
  • Bring a pen! And be extra nice and print out the test (attached).
3.  YARD SALE Sat 5/5
  • To be held in Torrance.  Your help is needed. Your stuff is needed as well. Pretty simple, right? See you there!
  • Location: In front of James N's place of residence.
  • Practice will be canceled so everyone can come support.  Please wear your jerseys and bring a small yummy snack!
4.  OC-2 TESTING Sun 5/6
