Dragon Boat Team for TRRA
Teamwork. Camaraderie. Power.
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!
You have a solid 7 weeks...
to train for the Central Catholic Biathlon
Saturday, December 13th
Save the date, and get ready for a sweaty erg and snowy run
Curious? Ask some race veterans like Mina, Ada, and Carolyn. Last year 6 Pfish participated, can we top that this year?
Just wanted to share this article with you all. Although it cites swimming and running, it's probably very applicable to paddling as well.

Personal Best: Before Hustling to Finish, Relaxed Is a Good Way to Start
By GINA KOLATA
Trainers and coaches say relaxation is crucial to a strong performance, and tension only serves to diminish an athlete's performance.

Live from New York!
Hey all! If you are wondering what I am up to all the way up in Clinton, NY, check out my blog on the Hamilton website: http://www.hamilton.edu/admission/journals/home.cfm
I miss everyone so much and was so surprised to get a call from Jonathan a few nights ago. I hope everyone is enjoying the last few nights on the river!
Our fearless flotilla crew
I wasn't there, but I heard our Paddlefish proudly represented non-motorized boats at Saturday's flotilla. Way to go! Thanks to Kathy RD for the photo
You guys also looked great on your Good Morning America debut on Friday. I was watching from CA! It's not every morning you get to do a paddle cheer on live national TV. Hip-hip-horay!
Even if it's just for a short visit. Jonathan surprised the Paddlefish by showing up for practice on Monday night. It was certainly good to see him and to have him yelling commands from the back of the boat, even if we can't understand him with that accent of his.
Paddlefish, this weekend is your chance to celebrate our city's birthday in a dragon boat. Grab your paddle and PFD!
FRIDAY 10/3: Good Morning America broadcasts from a dragon boat, see your email for more info. Let's fill the boat! Contact Claire at email@example.com to participate.
SATURDAY 10/4: Flotilla- Please meet at Millvale at 8 am. We'll paddle down to the Science Center and over to the Point. We'll head back from the Point at 11:30 am. Remember to bring a couple of drinks and snacks.
