Lotus Sports Club dragon boat regatta May 21 – one of my favorite races

Lotus Sports Club dragon boat regatta is one of my favorite regattas
because 1) it's a nice small size of about 12 to 15 teams and 2)
because the Lotus club members are all such NICE people.  Last
year, I paddled with Richard Mah's Spirit of Vancouver team, + with the
Lotus Juniors!  5 races in one day is Too Much Fun!  I really
felt it afterwards in my back! 

Last year, the club decided to rename the regatta after Bill Alley, one
of the club's original founding paddler back in 1986.  He was a
good man and will always be remembered.
