Congratulations APCA Dragon Boat Team!
It was a memorable weekend with all the racing, comraderies, weather, and medals.
After all of our hard work, we were able to compete with other teams with great results.
With that, 2015 will be considered breakout year for APCA Dragons winning 2 Silver and 1 Bronze medals.
We would not have successful tournament without the help of the entire team.
Thank you Niccole for supporting me with all the captain things (there are many things behind the scene) and especially for after party. It was a blast!
Thank you to Connie for organizing everything during the practice and race. She kept track of all the people and their volunteer hours. She also kept our PFDs smelling fresh.
Thank you to Zina who really wanted to see APCA succeed and putting her heart into coaching the team to victory.
Thank you to all of our support team, Shirley for organizing the lunch for the team, watching our tent and keeping our area organized, Gay with her famous salad and helping out with the lunch and snacks. Mina for helping with delivery along with her husband.
Thank you to all the team members that volunteered to bring ice, canopy, tables, chairs, pasta and Coffee/Tea for the team, Allan, Andy, Angela, Anne, Connie, Jennifer, Joy, Lindsay, Nancy, Niccole, Rick, Robin, and I hope I got everyone but if I don’t. Thank you.
Thank you to entire team who participated since we would not be a successful team without each other supporting one another and pushing to do better for the team.
As we close the 2015 APCA Dragons season, I would like to invite those who wants to continue paddling to join my year round team Space Dragons for more paddling and possibly joining us in Treasure Island for 20th anniversary of San Francisco Dragon Boat Festival September 19-20.
Thank you all and keep up your fitness level for next year where we will reach for the GOLD!
