Tempe Hell Week …
Don’t worry about hanging with the BEASTS. Every push-up, every jump-squat, every star-jump has one goal and one goal only: Improving your individual health and fitness.  Completing 5 sets IS a tough goal, shoot for it, you will only get stronger, and in doing so the team gets stronger.  Win-Win!

1.  PRACTICE - Sat/Sun 9am
   - Tempeeee – only 2 practices left! (1 mixed, 1 gender) Please do your best to make both practices… Race Sets this weekend!!!
   - Practice Poll Reminder: Be mindful of the practice poll. We need your poll responses by Wed 7p to properly notify SCDBC, later responses, while helpful to coaches and captains, do not help us satisfy our obligations to the association, beach monitors and the greater DB community.

** Practice Poll (fill it out and keep it updated with changes)!

   -  Fill out the Poll.
   -  Sat only 7:45a before normal practice (8a ON THE WATER)
   -  Usually a smaller group, so an accurate practice poll is extremely important.  Please keep this poll updated! Don't be "that guy" who signs up and then doesn't show up!

-   REMINDER: NO parking on ANY streets near Mother’s Beach
-   Park in the adjacent metered lot or in the Boy Scout lot, PERIOD
