SD Digest 5/9/12

Space Dragons!

Word of the week: Strength! Because look at those ridiculous OC-2 times! Good job team, our on- and off-water workouts are clearly paying big dividends. Keep it up!


Great Job to ALL involved. Due to strong participation in setup, goodies to sell, sellers and cleanup, we made a healthy $700!  That will certainly help to keep annual dues and tournament fees low.


Great Turnout! We had some great conditions and some really strong personal improvements, KEEP UP THE HARD WORK!

Need to do a make-up? Haven't emailed the coaches yet? Better hurry and email the coaches (and hope there are still open slots for you to test)!

Evite is UP! We are registered so mark your calendars and save some time to paddle HARD and party with Ripple!


The Board is seeking suggestions for locations to hold our annual Year End Party.  Past venues are already booked and other places we are interested are well over-budget.  If you have any good leads or a discount at a venue we may be able to use that supports about 80 people, please email captains before the end of the week.  We would like to stay in a centrally located area, in or near Long Beach.
