Hi Guppies!
Happy holidays and happy new year to everyone! Get excited for the new year! Below is a summary of the 2018 practice and race schedule.
Races We’ll Be Going To:
Arizona DB Festival (Tempe, AZ): March 24-25
Baby Long Beach (Long Beach, CA): April 22
3rd Annual Nevada Int’l Dragonboat Festival (Henderson, NV): May 19
Big Long Beach Race (Long Beach, CA): July 28-29
Portland/Montana Race: TBA
**We will only go to either the Portland or Montana. The board will be sending out evites for these two particular races later in the year**
Practice Schedule
We decided to change the practice schedule. After taking a hard look at this past year’s back-to-back practice schedule, we concluded that having back-to-back practice was not benefiting the team as a whole. Therefore, we will remove that portion of the practice and focus everyone on working together as a single organism. The rest of the practice schedule will remain the same!
8:30am – 9:30am: Meet at the Tree, Warm Up, Land Workout
9:30am – 11:00am: Water Practice
In June, our water time practices will be cut down to 1-hour slots.
8:30am-10am: Meet at the Tree, Warm Up, Land Workout
10:00am – 11:00am: Water Practice
We will revert back to the normal practice schedule after the Big Long Beach Race.
Other Important Dates
Newbie Day: February 10th

See you all out on the water! Enjoy the rest of the holidays.
