Just FYI she left to go across the pond to compete in the

world kayak polo championships …GO MONICA!!!





We also had the good men and women from Coppell and the united States Coast Guard Rev on hand, to bad none of their cool toys were needed!!


We had Randy on a Jetski too, Hey Randy!!!!!


And we had lots of swimmers/racers too….


This was a friend of mine’s 1st open water swim…

She wanted me to follow her but frankly I had a hard time keeping up!  Look at that great stroke!!!  You go girl!!!!

attention to your kayak needs!
