Fwd: Fw: Events on and Around Tempe Town Lake Marina


Aloha everyone!
Just a heads up to make sure you give yourself plenty of time to get through the freeway closures on I10 Eastbound this weekend.  For Saturday, Race paddlers are set for their final 6a start time.  Rec paddlers are asked to come at 8a however for this weekend, please be there before 8a because of the Making Strides against Breast Cancer walk that will restrict the entrance to the marina at times.
Next Saturday, there will be no practice as the club will be attending Another Dam Race.  Open Practice will resume for everyone but please be aware of the time and date changes at  http://tazocc.com/calendar/
