We're a diverse group of paddlers training on the water from Apr-Nov and indoors through the winter. We compete locally, nationally, and internationally. Join us! All you need is a willingness to work up some sweat, get a little wet, and have a lot of fun!
We're in at Philly! Please check your calendars and let Laurie or Rich know soon whether you can go. The races are held on Saturday, October 7th, starting at 7:30 AM, so we need to travel out there on Friday (with most people probably returning to Pittsburgh on Sunday). No details yet on lodging or registration costs.
Let Jen or Marie know this week if your plans for the retreat have changed in any way so they can finalize the cabin assignments. Marie's made contact with the canoe-rental guy, and it looks like we'll have somewhere between 10 and 12 canoes. Standard rental is $35/day; he told Marie he'd give us a 'deal' but we haven't seen the details on that yet!
Practice last night was dubbed "walk the line." Reach out the arms, keep 'em straight, bury the blade in the quick-drying cement, check for a positive blade angle in the water. Before, after, and in-between: rotate. Rotate rotate rotate.
