Updated 1/7/05: We'll hold a team meeting next Monday evening (January 17th) around 7:45 at Millvale -- we can get a good hour of practice in and then start promptly at 7:45. The purpose of the meeting will be to confirm which races we want to travel to this year and to get team members matched up with various positions (recruitment coordinator, fundraising coordinator, specific-race-logistics coordinator, etc.).

As noted in a December update, the festivals receiving the most votes so far for travel races are DC, Toronto, and Philly. Brief info about each of these -- dates and links -- will be posted inside this post as a "comment." Other races to keep in mind are the two local ones we've traditionally participated in: the July Regatta at the Point and the September Pittsburgh Dragonboat Festival.

DC Festival: No official word on when this will be held, but has typically been held on one of the last two weekends in May. Their website does not seem to work (http://www.dragonboatdc.com) , but see the Killer Guppies' site for a look at last year's festival: http://www.killerguppies.org/index.php?s=event&controls=none&id=154 .

Toronto Festival: June 25 & 26, 2005. No registration yet, but see www.dragonboats.com/pages/dragonboat2005.html for general info.

Philadelphia: October 1st, 2005. Registration open now. See www.philadragonboatfestival.com for more info. (Looks like $1000 registration fee with $250 as deposit.)
