fleet, a new logo, a new Keiki youth program headed up by Jon Davies and Todd Clay, 44
new members and fundraising efforts with the Keiki program, HR coffee sales online,
Becca’s awesome grant writing and Project neoprene logo stamps and
We regret the loss of one of our most influential and beloved members, Steve Gates, who
passed November 20th after a hard fought battle with cancer. His memory with ride with
each of us who had the pleasure of knowing and paddling with him.

Project Neoprene: Logo up. Great to do in the off-season! What You Need To Do:

1. Give Becca any neoprene article of clothing that you own.
Fill out an order form, bring money or a check.
2. Each logo “cure”/stamp costs $20.00 & makes money
for the club.
3. In turn, your clothes are delivered to a professional
screen printing shop that will cure a white HROCC Logo
onto the clothing with ink.
4. Voila, your neoprene is returned all blinged out with an
HROCC logo.All stamps are on the left. Pants are blinged
on the shin (3 inch.) Shorts are blinged on the quad (3
inch.)Jackets/ shirts are blinged on the middle of the back
(10 inch.)
5. Your clothes are returned when done. It’s that easy!
