Testing Weekend is Complete!

May 18, 2009

Wow!  What a fun weekend.

Saturday was the LARD Sale held at Jeannie’s brother’s place out in Arcadia.  Props to Jim for allowing us to use his place!  Check out Jim’s Blog – The Busy Dad Blog.  Nice to see someone bought the Girls Gone Wild videos my former roommate left when he moved out.

P1010705The boat ran great.  I was pleasantly surprised that a lot of paddlers paddled on the right side.  Previously, most of our paddlers chose to paddle left as they were afraid of huli’ing.  It seems that many of you are getting more and more comfortable on OC2s which is great!

As for me, I went the reverse route (go figure).  I tested left for the first time in hopes of setting up a good erg score.  My epic battle with Chuck continued with quite hilarious Erg results.

For the first time, we video taped the OC2 testing – thanks to Phil for bringing out his gear and Nick for bringing out the wagon.  Nothing like seeing you guys paddle under duress!

Anonymous results will be released soon – just as soon as the coaches recover from the long weekend.

For those of you that couldn’t make it out this weekend, we’ll be holding an Erg ONLY makeup soon – keep an eye out for the announcement.

Hopefully, everyone that tested will take positive lessons from the experience (and results from) this weekend.

Have a great week!

    Thanks everyone for helping at the sale! (btw, it wasn’t my bro who got the Girls Gone Wild tapes, it was another dude who claimed to be getting them “for his roommate”) And thanks coaches for another great day of torture!

    Hey LARD, great to see that OC2 in it’s new home. I have put a lot of time in on that boat both racing and training.

    She’s very stable and rides waves like a queen- smooth and steady. The ama was built for stability so paddling on the right shouldn’t be a problem i’ve never hullied that boat in flat water.
