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.
I'm planning to send the invitations out via Evite starting next practice and home work will be sent via email so stay tuned.
This Saturday (6/18/16) will be our third practice which starts at 10:20am. However, if you are new to dragon boating and coming out for the first time then please some earlier by 10:00am since I should be there around 9:30am.
It is always good idea to arrive little early for everyone since we need to take attendance, (still) 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.
All practices are counted as point toward Participation Award. Home Work and Extra credit will be sent via email & blog later.
Our tentative schedule for third practice will be as follows.
10:20am (recommended to arrive earlier) - Sign-in, turn in waivers, meet and greet
10:30am - 10:40am - Warm-up
10:40am - 10:50am - Get gears (paddle, PFD, water), restroom and line up at the beach
10:50am - 11:00am - Load the boat
11:00am - 12:00pm - On the water practice
12:00pm - 12:20pm - Help bring boats up, clean boats, clean paddles, and clean PFDs
12:20pm - 12:40pm - Stretching

1:00pm - 2:30pm - Team lunch at K.C. Branaghan’s Irish Pub (We recommend supporting them since they sponsor one of our boat) Also, everyone can get separate check.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
Thank you and see you at the beach!
