The Fraser Valley
dragon boaters are becoming a growing force in dragon boating… They
love paddling on choppy water just like the Tacoma Dragon boat
association – but unfortunately – this festival is held on the same day
as the Kent Washington dragonboat races… July 16. Hmm… drive
3 hours down past Seattle and suffer border hassles, and miss the
first race like we did in 2003 and have paddlers show up late because
they woke up late or had border hassles… or drive 90 minutes to
Harrison… and relax in the Hot Springs afterwards….
