Bob McNamara Paddling Camp, Tampa - April 3-8
Mary, Dave, Karen and Ellen attended. Week of pushing yourself to make it through the challenging program and matching up with several past TEAM USA members. Two 90 paddling sessions per day and two video review sessions. This left us with plenty of time to check out the local sites: Honeymoon beach, Big cat reserve, karen and ellen even got to race in the Bradenton dragon boat festival - which earned them GOLD!!!

S, Florida - April 9, Saturday
Karen snagged a seat on a local women's BCS crew and snagged her first gold as the crew (w/Ellen steering) took the women's division (2 teams) with the help of choppy waters and errant opposing steerers. Dave and Mary tried to do the
Shark Bite challenge, but it was suspended due to high winds. 8-(

 

Lake Mohawk, Sparta DBF - May 15, Sunday
We took our NJDBC club crew which included members of Team Dragons, Pathways Team SOS and several newbies. After two dominating heats, we eeeked out a win against a local cross-fit crew. Great experience for the newbies, and a strong test of will for the vets. Despite having a sluggish start in the weed lane, we trailed after the start of the 200m+ final. A strong body piece and finish nailed the win by
