Kids’ Dragon Boat Team Practice on July 6 2013 10:30 AM @ Santa Fe Dam

Good afternoon, parents.


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.


Thank you!!!


Coach Nate
