San Diego, Here We Come!

October 22, 2010

Two new teams, “LARD A” and “LARD 1”, will be heading down to San Diego this weekend for our final race of the season and San Diego’s first dragon boat race in a very long time.

Most people that follow teamLARD know we designate our race teams by color (ie. Red, White, Black).  We designate our Black team based on time trials and other criteria.

“But, Scott,” you ask, “what team is faster, LARD A or LARD 1?”  My answer is: Both.  We (the coaches) have used a tried and true technology to designate our teams this time around – the eyeball.  Erg scores and oc2 times were not consulted.  Our goal was to create two teams of equal ability.  We’re going to be experimenting with things we have pretty much ironed out in our target races – steersman, caller, strokes, timing box, midstrokes – we’re going to mix things up.

LARD is set to have some fun this weekend and help out our San Diego sisters and brothers any way we can to make this race go off well.

Also, I have handed over the keys (well, I actually just duplicated the key for them) to the TeamLARD twitter account to our race managers and captain.  They might be using it to keep you updated on meeting, marshalling, and race times.  You can follow the feed at:

I hope to see you all in San Diego!
