Hello Raceday Team Captains !!
Happy Spring, Daylight Savings Time & 2019 Paddling Season! It’s all finally here & that means time to start thinking about Raceday & getting your teams registered. Dragonboat Raceday will once again be held at our beautiful downtown Waterfront Park on Sat, June 22nd, so reserve that day on your calendar now!
Our Raceday web site has been redesigned so may not look as you expect, but you can register & move forward with populating your rosters any time — we’re ready! Website address as follows: www.dragonboat-raceday.com; or find by checking “DBB Raceday 2019“. Once there, click on “Menu” & go to “Teams”. Don’t forget to include a brief “team bio”.
As before, we’ll have a Mixed Cancer Survivor Division, a Senior Division (all members 50+ yrs) & a Community Division (at least 8 female paddlers in the boat each race), all competing for medals. We’ve also got some fun groups of teams competing for a Winner’s Cup (& bragging rights!). And don’t forget the prizes in our fun categories — Best Decorated Tent, Best Team T-shirt, Best Costumed Drummer, Drummer Raising Most $$’s, & Best Team Spirit.
Lastly, I have someone assisting me this year coordinating teams — Darlene McGrath, who can be contacted at the above email for any questions/concerns you may have now or in the future. Please don’t hesitate to contact either one of us if you need to.
So jump on the website & get your teams registered as quickly as possible — you don’t want to miss Dragonboat Raceday 2019!!

PS –Dragonboat Beaufort will be launching their boats (with blessings from the weather) on March 16th; we invite local team captains not already members of DBB, to join us for a Sat paddle anytime after the 16th — just let us know if you’re interested, the date, & we’ll assure you have a seat in the boat. We want you to get those “paddling juices” flowing & get excited about being out there on the water in a DRAGONBOAT!!!
