SD Digest 4/24/13

Are you tapering? Moderate workouts, eat well, sleep well!  There is no stumbling into being a champion.  It does not happen overnight.  It is a result of consistent hard work.  Practice and execution.   
 Remember, there are NO small races, only opportunities to grow. =)

1.  PRACTICE - Sat/Sun 9am
   - Only 2 practices left before Sunday races. Try to make it out for final tuning!
   - NO practice on Sunday
   - Wed night practice (5:30p-sundown) has started!  The Sunset paddling has been beautiful!
    - Practice Poll Reminder: Be mindful of the practice poll. We need your poll responses for Sat/Sun practice 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.
 ** Wed/Sat/Sun 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) Please be on time, we only have 1hr!
   -  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!
