On Saturday, July 28th, the Akron Rotary dragonboat team "Wavemakers" surprised the competition by cutting 5 seconds off of last year's performance and made it to the finals despite having a collision in race one which broke our dragon's head and threw our drummer Jen into the lake.  At the end of the final regular race, we were 4th overall out of 38 teams.  We actually made the finals for the first time in four our four year history and finished third in the Community division!
Please find attached a photo of the broken dragon along with Capt'n Rob and our drummer Jan (a friend of Akron Rotarian Chris Whitehead.)  Wanda has other photos should you want.
