Hope this message finds everyone in good health, physically and mentally refreshed, and eagerly anticipating this weekend's official kick-off to your team's 15th season! To all of our newer members, welcome! We look forward to getting to know you and of course, developing your abilities both on and off the water to help fulfill your wildest dragon boat fantasies; to all returning members, we are very much looking forward to an exciting season filled with new experiences & travel, inspired training, fun, commitment, new benchmarks, and surprise. Hope you're pumped for what will certainly be a unique season, and not just because I'm saying so...
Earning our berth last October to compete at the Hong Kong Club Crew World Championships in July this year, our 15th season no less, represents such a monumental milestone for our organization. It's an achievement that probably even those who've been with the team for 8+ years could only have begun to envision over the past few seasons as we've continued to 'grow' into this team sport. And it represents not only the strength and potential of our National paddlers, but of our entire team and culture. Though quite a few teammates have had great opportunities to compete at the international level as members of combined crews, we'll have our first-ever LARD teamUSA represented at the international level! Having said that, we truly want to encourage the ENTIRE team to participate in Hong Kong!
Season 15 is right smack ahead of us. Like the Sunday of a race weekend, yesteryear was only a starting point for our goal-setting in 2012. We've only done what we've expected of ourselves. It has been great to see, hear, and/or read about everyone's off-season pursuits in continuing an active, healthy lifestyle off the boat. Your improved fitness and PRs will undoubtedly position the team to start off stronger than ever, and I truly believe that it is never too late to be in the best shape of your life. So come on out and show off whatcha' been up to, fuel that spark you know your teammates will ignite, meet your new teammates-- heck, introduce some new ones-- and spread the LARD spirit!
On behalf of your coaches, GO LARD!

LARD in San Diego!
October 25, 2011 11:25pm | Kat Quinto over 1 year ago
Our last race of the year in San Diego was one we will never forget.
LARD won this year's PDBA West Coast Championship for Premier Mixed and the team finished a very strong and respectable 2nd place in the Premier Open's race! The team also brought home the gold, and a money prize for winning the 10-man Festival Race for the Mixed Division. Great job everyone!!!
To all LARD paddlers, our families and friends, alums and supporters, congratulations and thank you for your continued support and dedication to the team! We all finished our season strong!!!
