Getting Ready-Ready for the Festival

It's time to start thinking about next month's festival/race: Saturday, September 18th, South Side's waterfront park. Please post here your ability to commit to paddling in the mixed race that day and your willingness to paddle in a master's and/or men's or women's race.

If you go to the festival website, you'll see that the race info (http://www.pittsburghdragonboatfestival.org/RaceInfo.htm) mentions that teams who would like help in learning how to paddle a dragonboat or who want experienced paddlers to help as drummers or steerspeople should contact the Paddlefish or Steel City Dragons. Are you able to volunteer for this? It would involve two practices with the novice team, plus help on the day of the festival.

I will be attending the festival and will paddle with the team where needed. Might be able to drum for a festival team - depends when the practices are scheduled (do we need to make it to their practices?).
