Team Name:  Lake Lizards
Team Representative:  Jennifer Baird
About our Team: 
This is the Lake Lizards 14th season with a core of people that have become great friends. We work hard and play harder! We love to win, but all we will ever ask of you is to show up for the practices and the races and just do the best you can.  We value heart and dedication and a sense of humour.  We balance 75 minutes of practice every week with 2 hours of "strategy" at the local pub. We are a self-funded, community level team. This summer we are racing in 3 regattas (see below). We are a mixed team with a wide range of age and experience. 

Practices start early June (TBD). Tuesdays, 6:15 on the water (6pm for warm up and to organize positions) at Outer Harbour (near the foot of the Leslie St spit).  You will need your own paddle and PFD - if you are a newbie, we can help you select what is appropriate.
You must commit to a minimum of 2 of the listed regattas in order to join the team.
Please contact me directly if you have any questions or would like to become a Lizard!
