2015-09-19/20 Treasure Island Dragon Boat Festival

Alas, Alameda DragonFlyers didn’t bring home any medals from Treasure Island this year, but check out the pictures on the photo page. It was a great race. Due to development at Clipper Cove, it was the last year at Treasure Island. Rumor has it, the 2016 internationals may be at McCovey Cove at AT&T Park. Hmmmm.

2015-04-25 Yard Sale April 25

Don’t forget ADF’s annual yard sale, coming up on Saturday, April 25 between 1015 and 1019 Sherman Street, starting at 7:00 a.m. If you’re able to come help out and haven’t yet signed up, go to the ‘Availability’ tab on TeamSnap and commit to the early shift, the middle shift or the late shift — and let us know if you can help price items the afternoon before, April 24, starting at 3:00.
 
Sale coordinator Rudy has provided us with a preview of just a few of the items we’ll be selling.
Don’t you need a set of golf clubs? And how about that changing table for your new grand daughter? For sure someone is going to want that beautiful Trek hybrid bike. The perfect thing to get you to and from practice. And when you’re not at practice, how about swinging from those rustic chandeliers? The table and lamps look pretty sedate after all that, but they might be just what your home needs.
Plan a shopping spree for next Saturday, or, just like on eBay, you can BUY IT NOW! Call Rudy (282-5541) for prices and to arrange a time for a test ride/swing/change/etc. He’ll also receive your donations at practice or at 1015 Sherman Street. There’s always room for one more set of BBQ tools, kitchen chairs or costume jewelry. Clean out and ADF will clean up!

Venice Dates

Venice

Just sit right back and you’ll hear a tale, A tale of a distant trip, That’s starting from a Venice port, Aboard their tiny ship, aboard their tiny ship.

Corinne and Scott put together the crew, Coach Dan has made them strong, For months they practiced and prepard themselves, For a trip 5 hours long, a trip 5 hours long.

The start is from the Grand Canal, With water and food to snack, If not for the strength of the entire crew, They’d never make it back, they’d never make it back.

They came together from far and near,  To paddle for 17 miles, With ADF, and Portland, too, And also…Australia, One from BAD, A country up north called Canada, Paddling the Vogalonga!
