From Marianne Collins, Etobicoke Underwater Club, to the Pirates Ice Floe Racers:
I would like to thank Mar Smith and Derek Causarano and the rest of the SWODA team for proposing that we join the SWODA and the EUC Ice Floe teams and for guiding the combined Pirates with Puppies team to a third place victory at the 2013 Ice Floe race. Without SWODA's invitation we wouldn't have even had a chance to compete when we were short on racers. And better yet, the spirit of cooperation earned us the Best Club Participation award.
I call it a win win! Go Pirates!

From Derek Causarano, South Western Ontario Divers Association, to the Puppies Ice Floe Racers:
I would like to thank Marianne Collins, Bruce Beattie and the rest of the EUC team for joining forces with us in this year's Ice Floe Races. We accomplished something that the rest of the teams did not think we could: We competed. More importantly though, we accomplished exactly what we set out to do: We fought hard, met great people and had a fun time doing it! For us, that is what the Ice Floe Races are all about.
Definitely win win! Go Puppies! Arf Arf!
