Tacoma Dragon Boat Association makes the Seattle Times newspaper

Here's a link to an article about Tacoma Dragon Boat Association in the Seattle Times yesterday (July 27, 2006).

This
article describes how this group now dragon boat paddles 5 times a
week  on Lake Union in Seattle WA, after starting out in Tacoma in 2001.

They
interview my friend Lee Bjorklund.  Tacoma uses the Hawaiian word “pau”
to mean “stop” – since coach Clem Corbiel used Hawaiian outrigger
language to train the Tacoma dragon boat teams, even though Clem is a
native Albertan from Canada who used to race flatwater canoe against
Hugh Fisher in the Canadian canoe organizations.

In May, the Gung Haggis Fat Choy dragon boat team assisted TDBA by
providing paddlers and drummers for two women's teams in the 2006 False
Creek Women's Regatta.  check out our story and pictures
