Happy Hump Month
Can you believe we are 5 months into our 9 month season?!!!  Celebrate by making it out to a Wed “Hump Day” practice. They offer a different dynamic and the sunsets are amazing. We are filling 1-1.5 boats every Wed so come on out.

1.  Alcan OC-2 Time Trial Makeups – ??? 
-   If you could not make the primary trials, notify coaches if you are interested in a make up and the dates you are available in the next 2 weekends. The tentative make-up date was this Sunday May 26before or after practice, but I am not aware of any hard requests so far other than Joanna and Henry.  Due to Holiday weekend we may have an issue running makeups this weekend, so we need to know how many of you wants makeups.

2.  PRACTICE - Sat/Sun 9am, Wed 5:30p-Sunset
   - 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.
