Junior Dragon Boat Rowers WANTED
We’ve entered a Junior team into the Dumfries Dragon Boat Race which is due to take place on the Nith on Sunday 11th of May 2014. All we need is a Crew!
We entered two years ago at the last minute and finished third!! Everyone got a medal. It was a great day out, sun was shining which helped.
The rowing club puts on a great show of catering starting with Bacon rolls from 9.30am to tray bakes, burgers and drinks from 11.00 am onwards. We do use their event and it is a major fund raiser for them. Please feel free to overwhelm them with trade!! There is no alcohol on sale this year but plenty of hot and cold drinks.
The team needs to dress for the weather. Jeans in the boats are not a good idea! Fancy dress is encouraged. This year’s theme is Commonwealth. There is a prize for the best dressed team.
There will be 3 heats for all teams. I dare any team not to get competitive!! The fastest teams will go forward to the final. A separate Junior final will also take place.
Some teams are raising money for there own designated causes. You can fund raising using the approved sponsor forms. The nominated charities this year are the D&G Befriending project, cash for kids and the local DoE Award as well as some local charities
