TWIB W/C 8th April
Ballz and Boobz of Buzz!
What a start to the season, Boobz! 100m is not a familiar distance to us, but did we take it in our stride! Welcome to the world of dragonboat racing, Lady Rookies!
Lady Buzz Green - 2nd in their repechage
Lady Buzz Yellow - 5th overall
Great results at the start of the season. Hope you all had a great day and have got a taste of all the fantastic things to come. Bring on the rest of the season's racing.
Thank you to Tony B and those gents who brought the beer and came to celebrate with us! Much appreciated. New jersey's looking good!
Supporting our sponsors at the 7s!
This weekend sees the Lamma 500 race, at, you guessed it, Lamma Island, at a distance of, no surprises, 500m.
We have 60 paddlers coming, so please make our lives easy, check your calendars. If you aren't sure that you have signed up, ask! Race email will come out later this week with info, but here is the list of assumed attendees for you to check now!
Please do sign up for the Tai O race on the 30th June on TeamApp!
Sign-ups for races
Some of the more astute of you have noticed that you can no longer edit RSVPs for some races. This is to make logistics, organisation and lineups easier for us.
I know many of you are wondering when you will be told if you are racing or not. Please assume that you are racing the races you signed up for unless told otherwise.
There are many paddlers and it is easier for Caps to communicate with those individuals who are NOT paddling rather than affirming those who are. Be patient, we all have full time jobs on top of running the club.
We understand you need to plan your time, so if you need to check what dates you have agreed to race, ask a Captain in advance, if they say you are signed up, assume you are going to be racing. If you are not, you will be told as soon as we know.
