Races we would like to enter for the Summer 2004

The following are dragon boat races happening in BC, Washington, Oregon, Alberta, Sasketchewan and Manitoba.

Last year Gung Haggis raced in ADBF, Kent WA, Portland OR, Victoria BC and Vancouver Taiwanese dragon boat races.  Our coaching team has also raced in past years at ADBF regatta, FCRCC regatta, FC Women's regatta, Seattle DBF, Richmond DBf and in San Francisco + others.

The plan is to enter the races that are in bold – as long as we have enough people to enter a team.  Road trips are the most fun, and the team dinner parties and side trips such as Oregon Beaches, Okanagan wineries, Napa Valley wineries, are… too much fun

The trips outside Vancouver are only possible with a dedicated group of paddlers – or a larger group of paddlers to draw from.  Ideally if we have two teams for Vancouver – then people can pick and choose which races to enter throughout the summer.  The other option is to borrow paddlers from other teams or join up with other teams.  For Victoria last year, we joined up with Dieselfish from San Francisco.

Cheers, Todd

    Hi, is there any more information about the Portland 6-16 race? Can't seem to find any information on it anywhere.
