SD Weekly Digest 7/31/13

Great Job all crews! … Women, Open, Masters, Red, Blue White … Now, time to get back to work.  The competitive season is like a 500m race. So far we’ve had a great start (Tempe), a solid body (BabyLB, Alcan, BigLB) and now it’s time to Finish It!

Oakland crews have just 4 practices until race day and TI just 5 weeks after that! So keep up the intensity (practice, land drills, SDWW, BOOST) and Finish STRONG!      

1.  Big LB Recap
-   One Team - You arrived on-time, helped setup, helped feed our 3 hosted crews, cleaned up after yourselves, volunteered to paddle/call/steer for teams in need and kicked Dragon Boat Booty on the water for two days.
      -   If you left without your medals on Sunday, please let captains know.
      -   If you have pictures and video, please sync up with Jeff so he can collect all the media!

PRACTICE – Normal practice resumes TODAY!
2.  NORMAL 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.

6.  Weekly Boost!
Have you done the Weekly Boost yet?  Get to it! We’re putting up weekly targets for everyone (yes… EVERYONE) to meet every week.  The Weekly Boosts will only take a few minutes a day through the week or you can do it all in one day. Your choice.  Just get it done! Why? To show solidarity with the team.  To begin building a habit of doing a short work-outs regularly.  To build muscle and cardiovascular strength.  To promote good health.  To encourage others to do the same.  Update Spacebook when you do it.  It’ll not only help you (tracking what you’ve done), it’ll help us (recognize the work and thought we put in), and help the team (encourage others to join in too).
