The team made its first debut in 2010 with a team of 16 Breast Cancer Survivors. The team included 7 out-of-town paddlers. With little to no experience or practice, the team paddled well and landed in the 4th place overall. The 2011 team had a full boat, with only 3 out-of-town participants. Most paddlers on the team were first timers. The team was exhilarated when they finished their 500m race @ a time 2:48min. This year’s team is exuding with great spirit and anticipation since for the first time we have a total of 14 returning paddlers, some who have become year-round paddlers.
Currently, practice is on Sunday Mornings at 8AM. To get the most current practice times and when you can join them please e-mail Diane Krecker at email@example.com or by phone at 480-430-2849
