Wanted!  Needed!!!!!

Volunteers wanted for Boat and Dock Maintenance team for combined dragonboat and outrigger divisions. These crews, including the division Coordinators, will be involved with maintaining all boats and the the dock space, making sure that everything is up and running. Currently, we are in need of assistance for work required on the outriggers and dragonboats to get them back into fighting form. The boats that need specific attention currently are the 616's and the old BUK in the DB division and the all of the OCs.  Skilled and unskilled labour required asap.

Once we get a list of people we will set up a meeting to get sort out what needs to be done and when. We need your help gang!

Please email your OC rep or your DB rep as soon as possible! Let us know what skills you have.  Thanking you in advance for your help!

Members looking to form a mixed Senior "C" competive team

We are looking to form a new Seniors (59 +) Competitive Dragon Boat Mixed team. We are particularly seeking and in need of men to join the team; however couples, partners and singles are welcome.

Are you interested in training with other 59+ paddlers to go to IDBF Club Crew Worlds 2016 in Adelaine, Australia?

Please contact Al at if you are interested.  All those interested would be invited to a meeting to decide how to best meet this goal as there are many options.  These decisions need to be made quickly -  the team would need to attend qualifier races and IDBF CC Nationals in Welland, Ontario during 2015 to earn their spot to go to IDBF CC Worlds 2016 in Australia.
