Teamwork
Whatever we set out to accomplish is easier with teamwork. This has been proven time and time again, whether in a boat, on land, behind a counter … or … hocking wares in a strange yard.

1.  SPACE DRAGONS 2013 YARD SALE –  THIS Sat May 11th!

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.

** Wed/Sat/Sun Practice Poll (fill it out and keep it updated with changes)!

    NO SPECIAL BOATSat 5/11 (Yard Sale)
