Thank you, Paddlefish, for taking some time after practice tonight to vote upon the question of how to fill our empty benches in the Toronto women's boat.
The majority of those present voted not to race with empty benches, and as a solution, to find outside paddlers, from either Steel City Dragons or from Canadian teams, to fill the three vacancies in the women's boat. Outside paddlers will not displace any Paddlefish. The steering committee will begin the process of finding additional outside paddlers.
If you have decided you would like to go to Toronto, or if you've committed to this race but need to back out, please let Jeanne know immediately.
