10am is
this Sunday's practice time – 
September 25th.
We moved it one hour
early… to help accommodate people attending Word On the Street and
World Rivers Day events…

10am – we meet
– the boat leaves the dock (which is only 30 minutes before we normally
12 noon – back on dryland

We had a GREAT practice on Wed Night
– hardly any rain at all!  only light sprinkles at the beginning then
it stopped completely…

We simulated the pumpkin final race for
Ft. Langley – our lead strokes Debbie and Karl grabbed imaginary
pumpkins and took turns being the single lead stroke in the boat.  We
practiced turns, and beach landings.  I even jumped out of the boat onto
the shore, at one point.
