    Thanks to all for the special award I was presented with yesterday. Karen got a good laugh reading the opening line on wrap about patience.

    Things to bring for a long day of racing.
    Paddles, PFD's, and paddle wax
    Sunglasses, sunscreen, and insect repellant
    A folding chair
    Food and plenty of fluids to last the day. Please no alcoholic beverages until after races are complete.
    A dry set of clothing including shoes for after races.
    Hate to say this but, paddle gloves and seat cushions for those that use this kind of stuff.
    And last but not least, a positive and winning attitude.
    Thanks, Mike

      Mike doesn't like cushions and gloves but if you need them bring them. We have several people that use cushions and gloves.
