This week we are thinking of our troops and everyone impacted by 9/11. We also kept our teammates on our coed and men’s crews in our hearts as they took on the Southern California Outrigger Racing Association Catalina Challenge on Sept. 12-13. Our coed crew took 4th place – a first for AZ – and our men’s crew was the first we’ve fielded since 2005. Big accomplishment for all our paddlers, most especially our novices!
Coming up, we remember old friends for the Okie O’Connor Hot Head Challenge on Tempe Town Lake on Oct. 3, and Another Dam Race in Parker, AZ on Nov. 7, which honors co-founders Deb Robison and Larry Smith.
This is one of the best times of year to try outrigger canoe in Arizona. You don’t have to have experience, just bring your good mana to share. To find out what’s coming up: follow us on Facebook
