Calendar Check

This might be a good time to synchronize our calendars (or at least our thinking about our calendars)..... Our initial goal was to travel to at least one out-of-town race this season; we updated that goal this spring and decided to shoot for three out-of-town dragonboat races: DC, Toronto, and Philadelphia. Here's a summary of where we are now -- have I missed anything?

We had a great time in DC, learned a lot. We've missed the registration deadline for Toronto, but Pauline is talking to JW to see if Steel City might still be interested in taking along some female Paddlefish to race a Pittsburgh women's boat. (If you are willing and able to go to Toronto, let Pauline know ASAP.)

Info on the October 2nd Philly race is outlined in an earlier blog post -- are we ready to register?

Chuck is going to contact Cleveland to see what the registration fee would be for out-of-town teams. The Cleveland race is July 3rd (Saturday).

Also happening that weekend is the Three Rivers Regatta. The lighted boat parade is Saturday night (July 3rd at 10 PM), and dragonboat and kayak races are on Sunday's schedule as tentative events from 10 AM - 2 PM.

Comments on racing in Cleveland? On participating in the lighted boat parade and dragonboating in the Regatta?

Final race calendar note: the Pittsburgh Dragonboat Festival will be held September 18th.

Upcoming social events:


    Monday -- Memorial Day Picnic after practice (thanks, Laurie B!)

    Sometime in June -- 40+40 Celebration for Mike's birthday

    End of July -- Lisa's First Birthday Party

I'm in for Philadelphia, not available for Cleveland or the Regatta--Dick, Kate and I have hotel reservations for Toronto already (I will look into team hotels tomorrow)-we want to see the races if not participate. Kate and I (or is Kate too young) would be willing to go in with Steel City for a woman's team.

I'm in for Philly and Cleveland. But I will not go to Toronto unless the whole team races. I am definitely in for International in NY - either to race or watch.

I can go to Cleveland and/or would help with the Regatta, and can go to Philly. I have also told Pauline that I would be willing to join Steel City for Toronto.

I can't go to Toronto, but am ready to commit to Philadelphia. Either Cleveland or the Regatta works for me. Lisa raises the question of the New York International -- do we want to consider racing in that event, or is that spreading ourselves too thin for our first season?

I'm prepared to commit to Philadelphia & propose we register soon. Cleveland and/or the Regatta is OK but let's try not to over-schedule ourselves that week-end. I'm not planning to go to Toronto with Steel City - since we are not going as a team I accepted another invitation & will be out of town. I'm hoping we go as a team next year!
