The Gung Haggis Fat Choy dragon boat team is racing Saturday and Sunday June 19 & 20 at Alcan Dragon Boat Festival
Our first race is at 10:23 in heat 14 – in a Gemini boat. This means we could be on a boat on the water possibly by 9:50, and marshaled by 9:30.
This means we need to meet by 8:00am at our tent in Racer's Village. For people unfamiliar with Racer's Village – please aim for 7:45am. It is important to meet 90 minutes prior to our marshalling time – because the chances something can go wrong are now exponential! (possible problems include parking, losing/forgetting your pass, getting lost on site, can't find the team tent, forgetting towake up – don't laugh… somebody was late getting up the morning we had to leave Vancouver by 6am to make a 10am race in Seattle.)
Manager Dave Montrose, co-coach Bob Brinson and myself will confirm our Saturday morning meeting time by Thursday.
We are lucky we are not scheduled for Heat 4 at 8:33am. Then we would have to be marshalled by 7:45 and meet at the tent by 6:45am!
Our next race will be dependent upon our placement.
We are seeded 5th of 8 boats. Expect to finish 4th, 5th or 6th.
If we finish:
3rd and go to Pool A Heat 8 at 3:20pm
4th we go to Pool A Heat 5 at 2:47pm,
5th we go to Pool B heat 6 at 2:14pm,
6th, we go to Pool Be Heat 7 at 2:25pm,
7th, we go to Pool B Heat 8 at 2:36pm
8th, we go to Pool B Heat 5 at 2:03pm
