Team USA Prague Tryout (Update)

March 18, 2009

Bob McNamara sent out an email to the Yahoo Dragon Boat Email List earlier today.

This is what it said:

Team USA for Prague is being assembled. Time trials for interested
adults (open-senior-GM) are planned for:

Houston April 4th at the Houston Watersports complex 8 AM start

San Diego April 18th site TBD, possibly Mission Bay

Philadelphia: several dates from May through June (May 16, May 23, May
30, June 13, June 20)

Time trial is single outrigger, one-sided, dragon boat paddles only

If interested contact me directly and I will send you further

Bob McNamara

Team USA head coach

I followed up with Coach McNamara and he indicated the following regarding the San Diego Time Trial:

There will be a morning time trial on Saturday, April 18th in at 8AM to 11 AM or as long as necessary at Fiesta Island (where the SD Dragon Boat Team practices).

Course will be approximately 400m which should take approximately 2 minutes to finish.

There will also be a session in a dragon boat – as of now, it is uncertain if this session will happen later on Saturday or Sunday morning.

If I get any further information, I’ll keep everyone update.
