COMPETITIVE – for those who paddle year-round (limited slots)
Many thanks to all the parents, family, and friends who came to support our teams. Thanks too to all those who brought food, canopies, tables, etc. A Big Huge thanks to (the man who made my day) Jose Almeida for showing off his bbq grilling skills. That was truly, truly awesome!!!
We are barely a week away from the Long Beach Dragon Boat Festival. What are you doing to prepare for the races? Here are some pictures from the 2011 Long Beach Dragon Boat Festival to get you motivated.
Don’t forget, last practice before the competition is this Sunday, July 21 at 830am at Santa Fe Dam.
Team DPW kids warming up with the Team DPW adults!
This is a reminder of the kids’ team practice this Saturday @ 10:30am at Santa Fe Recreational Park (boat launch area).
Like the last time, practice will continue until 1pm since I will be rotating the kids to take turns paddling.
Please make sure the kids eat breakfast and bring a small water bottle inside the boat. It’s starting to get warm, especially at the time of our practice.
Please let me know if you have any questions. For those who have paid $30 for the cost of registration and uniform, many thanks to you. For those who needed to purchase raffle tickets for my team’s apple products fundraiser, you may approach me this Saturday at practice.
