Practice/Membership/Dragonboat Festival

Aloha!!

Thank you to everyone who came out and helped with
the open house or participated. It was a huge success! If you didn’t make it
out and still want to paddle, consider coming to one of the practices this week
and speaking with one of the coaches (Kui, Tony or Ilona).

 

Practice this week (March 18th-March 23rd) is:

·        
Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 6:00 p.m.

·        
Saturday morning at 8:00 a.m.

(Remember
to bring your water with you as the days are heating up!)
