We are half way past the mark and only 3 practices left before the big race.
Let's keep the momentum going and be more focused on our practice.
We had another 3 full boats for practice last Saturday. I love the participation.
However, there were only 38 team members remaining when it was time for cool-down and announcement after the clean-up.
It is all of our responsibility to help bring up and clean the boat, clean and hang any borrowed PFDs and paddles.
Since we are borrowing from Dragon Boat Association, we should try to leave it cleaner than we found them so that APCA shines in good light.
Also, we do have team announcements after the practice which is important part of dragon boat team to always get together for huddle.
Here's what we discussed:
1. For those who stayed till the announcement got extra point for participation. This was sort of "pop quiz".
2. Although APCA Dragons doesn't have official practice set-up for 6/22/13, Space Dragons offers to have some of us practice with them this Saturday.
Space Dragons said they can take about 25 paddlers. We have 17 APCA team members already signed up so if you would like to get extra practice with year round team members then please let me know by Friday 3pm so I can give numbers to the coaches. Space Dragons practice starts at 9am.
