If you listened carefully around 7 am on Monday May 29th you may have been able to hear the dragon, the Susanna Foo, roar as eleven or so brave paddlers took to the water. It was the first official paddle of the 2017 season. The weather was not exactly great. In fact it was raining. That did not hinder our enthusiasm but had Coach Janine sent an email I am sure that we would not have been too terribly disappointed. Janine did actually sing though!
This morning was great! Sun was shining. One of the newbies actually came back even after being initiated to paddling in the rain. Coach Lois worked on our stroke. It felt good to be back in the boat and on the water.
Port Parry is in about three weeks, June 17th. I believe we still need a few more people. Waivers and health forms need to be signed too. Please have a look at the email from the Management Team today as well. Let’s pray for a sunny day with lots of fun and excitement.
