It is not easy to put up a great event without the help of volunteers.  Thanks to all of you for organizing the tent, food, breakfast, lunch, fruits, games, rosters, teams, kids, chairs, tables, etc etc etc.  Many many thanks to all of you.  Many thanks too to those who have donated to our funds and helped in registering more teams in different divisions.

Congrats to our ladies who raced in the Women’s Division A finals.  Our Geezers too who proved to be a tough contender though they are 90+ years old!  Thanks to all our friends from Texas and San Diego who paddled with us and helped glide our way to victory!!!  Congrats too to our kids teams for defending their Gold medals at the elementary division.

Congrats too to our guest teams, Team Phoenix Fire Dragons (Arizona) and Team Lightwave (SFO), for winning in their respective divisions!

Congrats to our DPW paddlers racing with the Long Beach Masters for winning the Gold.  We hope that your gold medal finish stays with you when you compete in Italy.

Thanks to all our families who were there to cheer us on at every race!  I hope you had a great time at our tent.  Those little kids that played at the sand the whole day and their only break from playing was to cheer us on…  then back to the sand, ha ha ha.


Congratulations and Thanks again to all!!!
