The Space Between
Races are an opportunity to showcase your hard work. But once the races are finished and the celebrations are over, we find ourselves in a place where we can reflect and start training for the next one. Welcome to The Space Between.

1.  Baby LB 
-   The 12 college and HS boats, combined with only a single seeding heat, created quite a challenge. And we all stepped up!

3.  PRACTICE - Sat/Sun 9am, Wed 5:30p-Sunset
   - 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 til June 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!
