Congratulations Chaotians on Lake Lure! For those who couldn’t make it, here are some highlights:

  • First time Chaos entered 4 mixed teams, with Hot Mess winning GOLD in the Masters
  • Anger Management lived up to their name getting Bronze, and Chaos Black won Gold in the Mixed Division and beat the Open team (re: men)
  • Espresso (Eat, Sleep, Paddle, Repeat) shaved off 2 seconds after their first race and got into the hunt …umm, did anyone count 8 men on the Raleigh “Mixed” team? just saying :-)
  • We celebrated at Riverwatch Bar & Grill and then on to the Tiki Bar for some Karaoke!

What a great day of racing, and thank you Team Captains and Drummers!  A special thank you to Teri Hufford (coordinated event) and Michael Hubert for "knocking it out of the park" steering.

The Richmond festival is six weeks away! Ran by GWN, this is a tough competition as it brings in clubs from Baltimore, DC, and NYC. We’d like to take a Mixed and Ladies team – so sign-up now on Meetup:

<![CDATA[2015 Organized Chaos Leadership Team (action requested) and 2014 Survey Results]]> https://www.meetup.com/Organized-Chaos-Dragon-Boating/messages/76541458/ Chaotians,

2014 was an amazing year for Organized Chaos – great coaching, success on the water, several mini festivals and new heads & tails for the boats. Also, the new Mountain Island location is working out very well and appears to be our permanent spot going forward! Speaking of new… I want to welcome the NEW 2015 Leadership Team! Per our bylaws, click on the following link to confirm: Confirm 2015 Leadership Team

  • President: Brian Moreland
  • Treasurer: Harriett Rosebrough
  • Secretary: Kathy Moreland
  • Team Captain: Teri Hufford
  • Team Captain: Andrea Poerio
  • Fund Development: Randy Crow / Sue O’Brien (co-chair)

Please help me thank the 2014 Leadership Team - what a great job and thank you for all the hard work! Dawn Alligood (Secretary), Harriett Rosebrough (Treasurer), Joe Bravo, Teri Hufford, Juana Elguera (Captains)

Also, I want to thank Coach Giang and all the Committee Members for making 2014 a huge success!

Lastly, here are the 2014 Organized Chaos Survey Results. If you have Microsoft Excel, you'll find the "2014 OC Survey Responses" comments insightful.  Overall, looks like everybody had a great time but would like to see our numbers grow.

If you haven't tried Karen's Total Body Conditioning class on Saturday Mornings, check it out.  I am working muscles I never knew I had!

Thanks!

Randy Crow, 2014 OC President

<![CDATA[From the Desk of the President – Important Updates]]> https://www.meetup.com/Organized-Chaos-Dragon-Boating/messages/76393380/ Chaotians,
Below are some important updates. Please read through the whole email... if you are like me, you stop after the first couple lines. ;-)

Practices / Deerfield Beach
Chaos will continue to have practices until December 13th and then take a couple weeks off for the holidays. Due to the convenience of the new location (and weather permitting), we may introduce ad hoc practices in January, February, and March. Our 2015 practices officially kick off on March 28th.

Looks like we are short paddlers for Deerfield, unless I hear back from others, I’ll cancel and we’ll have our normal Saturday session next week (12/6).

Survey ends today!
If you haven’t responded yet, please fill out the end of season survey: 2014 Chaos Survey

2015 Leadership Positions
Shortly, we’ll be confirming our 2015 Organized Chaos Leadership. Please let me know if you are interested or have questions about the below positions by December 14th. It takes a village to run a club, and Chaos needs you!
• President
• Secretary
• Treasurer
• Team Captain (2 positions available)
• Fund Development (Fundraising and Donations)

Total Body Conditioning – Karen is Back!
Karen Davidson will be providing us a weekly total body conditioning class at the Covenant Presbyterian Church fitness wing (accessibly via Dilworth Rd) for the months of Jan, Feb, and March. All fitness levels are welcome as she provides variations for each exercise. Her regular rate is $12/session, but Chaos subsidized the fee and cost is now $5 per person.
What a great way to stay active and connected in the off season!!

Reserve your spot here: LINK

Although not done yet, 2014 was an amazing year for the club! Stay tuned for a Party invite so we can celebrate our accomplishments and welcome in the new 2015 Leadership Team.

See you on the water!

Randy Crow

Organized Chaos, President

<![CDATA[Re: [Organized-Chaos-Dragon-Boating] Looking for someone to work out with during the off season?]]> https://www.meetup.com/Organized-Chaos-Dragon-Boating/messages/76353681/ Philly usually takes the medals home each year. But, With that said I finished in the top couple of paddlers and beat Bob McNamara and a couple of his Philly Cronies.
It costs something like 10 bucks. The real cost is going to NY and staying there going to plays, eating great food, checking out the world trade center/Statue of Liberty, and having a few drinks.
All we need is to get 4 people together for the team events.

Hi All,

We would not be having usual Chaos/newbie session this Saturday. I would still like to have all Chaos people come out and participate in this event, and welcome the guests and race with them.

-> Please send me your guest details - both confirmed and tentative. Even if you don't have anyone, let me know. This will help plan the schedule.

-> Please bring chairs, water, sunscreen.

-> If anyone has games like corn-hole, Frisbee or similar, please bring them.

->My email is [address removed].

See you all Saturday.

Prabhu

I am trying to come up with a plan and format for the number of races for this Saturday. Can you please send me an email with how many guests each one of you are expecting to join us. Also, include those who think are tentative. Keep inviting. The more the merrier, and good for Chaos.

<![CDATA[Dragon Boat Family Feud - RSVP]]> https://www.meetup.com/Organized-Chaos-Dragon-Boating/messages/70887842/ Hi All,

Hope the week got off to a flying start. Hope you all are spreading the word about the dragon boat family feud. Please RSVP and also ask your guest to do the same.

I also have one more request. I have this event posted in the meetup C.E.T.S(Charlotte Entertainment, Travel and Sports). This is a bigger group and the idea is to spread the word to a bigger audience. So, it would help if you all can join that group and RSVP there.

I will be in constant touch with you all for the next couple of weeks atleast. Also, I need some volunteers to help me with this.

I will get back with details on the volunteer activities. Thanks!!

See you all at Ramsey tomorrow.

Prabhu

<![CDATA[Dragon Boat Family Feud]]> https://www.meetup.com/Organized-Chaos-Dragon-Boating/messages/70763332/ Hi All,

Happy Friday!! How is your recruitment going for Dragon Boat Family Feud. I see some of you and your guests have RSVPed in Facebook event page. And I heard some of you have invited people, but not told me yet. Please go ahead and share me the numbers from your end.

This is required to come up with a format/number of races ( 2 or 3) and also group into teams. Each team would have atleast 2 races at a minimum and the distance would be around 150-200m.

Please reach out to me at [address removed] if you want a copy of the invite in word doc format. My cell is (336)262-3870.

p.s - There was inquiry if we allow drop-in on the day of event. Answer is yes, but it depends on how many we have confirmed.

Go ahead, start recruiting. See you all at the practice tomorrow.

<![CDATA["Bring your family and friends to race" Day - DragonBoat Family Feud]]> https://www.meetup.com/Organized-Chaos-Dragon-Boating/messages/70425902/ Ever wondered how easy it would be to explain or talk to your family and friends about dragonboating and races that you go to. Well, I have. It would be easier if they experience it for themselves.

We now have a chance to accomplish this. So, bring all your family and friends, and also co-workers to Ramsey Creek Park on July 12, 2014. Our coaches will take them on a boat and then race against each other.

Okay, my sales pitch is over and here are the details.


Name of this event - Dragon Boat Family Feud

Date/Time - July 12, 2014 11AM-2PM

Place - Ramsey Creek park

This would also be a fundraiser event to raise money for our equipment, insurance and other operating costs. Suggested donation is $20. Any amount is not small. (All donations are tax-deductible). I will also invite everyone to the facebook event page. You can invite friends from event page. RSVP can also be done on meetup site.

Now, the next step is you inviting anyone you know that you think would like to try or you would like them to experience it. The goal is to have our chaos members form their own team with friends and family and race against other teams. For people who are not able to form their teams, we will pool them into teams. I am also attaching an invite that you guys can use to spread the word about this.

Please feel free to contact me for any information.

Sorry Randy I wish I could make it, but as you know I am about 3 hours away, I have to take my wife to the airport in the morning, but rest assured I will be practicing and getting ready for the race.  

I know it would be helpful, if I could be there. 

Making progress on the weight loss, down to 238 now, hopefully 235 on race day.  

Also, what color jersey should I wear? 
Or will I be able to purchase a team jersey?

I’d like to roster 3 teams (mixed, ladies, and men) - we must beat the Charleston Firebreathers!!

As a reminder, membership is now due for the 2014 season. Your $80 pays for insurance, equipment, storage, and coaching. For those who are under 30, we are now discounting your annual dues to $50!! If you have already paid, the residual $30 can go against your first race.

Practice this Saturday and begin Tuesday night sessions starting next week - See you on the water!
