This email is now only going to those who signed up to try dragon boating so if you have co-worker who was interested then you will have to forward the email or check the blog for info.
This Saturday (6/11/16) will be our second practice which starts at 10am.
We still have new people coming so we want meet little early to take attendance, collect waivers, and learn the basics paddling form. Please make sure you add extra time to your commute so that you can find parking and also find our group.
We'll have our APCA signs so look for our APCA Logo.
