Ahh, I know how psyched you were for this (not to mention how hard you worked), so CONGRATULATIONS!!! You should be super duper proud~ :) :) :)

Thank you ♥ I was on tenterhooks the whole time I was waiting for the call.
(And judging from the Facebook conversations, everyone else was too---even those I considered to be total locks!)

Congrats especially on making it as a newbie!!! Dragonboat really does sound like a lot of fun (especially if everybody gets equally obsessive about it, ha ha) - adf;slkj looking at the links you just forwarded to me, I might sign up for the Fridays in June...

Oh, and GOOD LUCK, OBVIOUSLY. Geez, I can't believe I forgot that part ;)

DOOOOO IIIIT!!!! (Also come out to the festival in mid-June so you can see what the fuss is all about ;D) If you find you like it, I'd definitely see if you can race in the Steveston festival in August---I think it's a pretty small one and races are just so much adrenaline-filled fun!

Yeah, hahaha. I might have made the team but the hard work is just beginning. The first thing my coach said after she told me I'd made the cut was, "Can you come early tomorrow evening for some one-on-one training?"

When is the festival? :)

Ha ha oh man, hopefully it'll give you a "break" from stressing over your thesis? ENDORPHINS, MAN.

This year it runs 15 - 17 June down by Science World. I've actually never gone myself, but I think there's lots to do besides watch people race: musicians, vendors, etc. It happens a scant ten days before my defense! Lots to get ready in mid-to-late June >:D

You're planning on going this year, right? I'll probably be able to make it out to either the 15th or 17th festivities... hmm...

My team might have something to say if I decided not to show up for the races :)
I don't know how much/if I'll be able to join you in poking around, we get pretty intense on race day. Please do stop by and say hi though! :D

I meant for the festivities, but I think you already answered my question! I'll definitely keep an eye out and see if any of my friends are interested in tagging along just to check things out. Thanks for the heads up!
