Hello fellow paddlers!

The 2013 season will be upon us shortly and I'm looking forward to another great season!

My name is Sandy Thiry and I have been with Organized Chaos for 1 year! I am excited to represent Organized Chaos as the 2013 President. Assisting me this year in leadership roles: Juana Elguera- Secretary; Harriet Rosebrough- Treasurer; Terri Hufford- Captain Ladies team; Randy Crow- Captain, Premier Black team; Dawn Alligood- Captain, Mixed team; Randy Crow and Dee Bauer - Coaches.

Your leadership team has been working hard assuming their new roles and responsibilities as well as planning the season including marketing merchandise (hats, waterbottles, flyers and business cards) and recruiting opportunities. Our organization will continue to be successfull because of your involvement. It takes many hands to make the work light and we're looking forward to each of you contributing your efforts in and out of the boat.

Again this year, we will be utlizing our Meetup site at http://www.meetup.com/Organized-Chaos-Dragon-Boating for communications, practice schedule, and race schedule. Please be sure to take a moment to "Join" on the meetup site if you haven't already. I'm happy to announce we have kept the membership fee at $75 for this year. Please note, membership dues is due upon your enrollment but no later than April 27th. You may split up your payments between now and April 27th to ensure your dues is paid on time. You may pay by check, payable to Organized Chaos, and given to Juana or can be made through PayPal. The 2013 enrollment form is located on the site should you decide to be proactive with your enrollment. There will be forms provided at the practice sessions as well.

Our first practice will be held Saturday March 30th at 10:15am at Ramsey Creek Park. Please be sure to RSVP on Meetup for all practices and Fundamental sessions you will be attending. Again, it is important to utilize Meetup as this will help the leadership team manage the sessions and staffing.

Our April 13th practice will be held at Paddlefest on Lake Davidson. Paddlefest will consist of canoe, kayake, paddle board and dragon boating opportunities on Lake Davidson to support the Davidson Land Conservancy through fund raising.

We will be having our practice on Lake Davidson to show off our organization and hopefully recruit new members! This event is scheduled from 10 am - 3pm. We will be looking for members who can commit some additional time after "practice" to help make this event successful for our organization. We will hold practice first to showcase our sport and then follow up with Fundamental type of sessions throughout rest of day. Look for update information in the upcoming weeks!

Paddles Up!
