    Thanks to all those who worked tirelessly to fundraise for our equipment fund. Our efforts are paying off! Coach Dave is on his way home with a new (to us) trailer, which gives our teams so much more flexibility in the regattas we host and those we travel to throughout the season. Thanks to everyone who made this purchase possible. Now, we can load up our new boats on our new trailer.

    The April board meeting set for Thursday, April 11, will be at Optimal Wellness on Cascade Road. The meeting time will be 7pm, as stated on our calendar. The policy for room rental at all local KDL locations has changed, so we may be looking for another venue for future meetings.
