This club has had a fabulous 2015 season! The finale was its "Paddles Up Celebration" at the Annapolis Marriott! The membership is sincerely grateful for the enormous community support! Our mission continues!
In the course of this season, club membership and community awareness and interest has significantly grown! Mental and physical strength and endurance of all paddlers has improved so much that the club won its first trophy and the race team medaled 4 times!
RACE TEAM: On September 19th, this team did battle in 200 meter SPRINTS in the picturesque town of Cape May, NJ! The first race resulted in a TIE FOR 2ND PLACE in a time of 1:08:10 -- a photo finish! The second race, a 4 boat race in the BCS Division, resulted in a FIRST PLACE win by fractions of a second! For this, the team was awarded their first TROPHY! The final race of the day, B Division Womens, resulted in a clear FIRST PLACE victory and a time that would have been a place medal in the A Division! Our coach prepared us well! Practice really paid off!
Racing in Philadelphia in June resulted in GREAT race times early in the season! The Baltimore Challenge was June 28 after a huge storm in difficult conditions and the team medaled with a bronze! Looking forward to the Cape May race in September!
SPECIAL EVENT: On June 20th we were honored to have local artist, Nancy Hammond, make a guest appearance at our Open House to paint "open" our dragon's eyes! Her painted rendition of "the paddles of the dragon" is currently displayed in the breast center of Anne Arundel Medical Center. That same painting is available for purchase on notecards and on a rolled print. SEE MERCHANDISE PAGE FOR ONLINE PURCHASES.
