2.  SD Citizens Award Scholarship
As a family, the Space Dragons want to make sure each of us has the opportunity to make it to tournaments. We would hate to see our students miss out on all the fun and work and silliness and racing because they are shy on cash, right? Help out your fellow teammates by just contributing a buck or two [or more!]. Those few dollars can make all the difference for the youngsters on our team. Give your contributions to Gracey or Roger. We accept cash, check, PayPal, and credit card!

 Please be ON TIME, we only have 1hr and need everybody to launch the boat!
