It’s been a long wait, but we are excited to announce the return of dragon boat practices in Calgary!
We will initially pilot a limited roll out for established local club teams to start some practices, with boats launching on Saturday, July 31, 2021.
Teams must hold a 2019 membership, have their own coach and certified steers, as CDBS will not be providing coaches and steers people this year.
All paddlers are to be fully vaccinated and as a precautionary measure to limit sharing of equipment, the majority of the team should have use of their own equipment as there are limited paddles and PFDs that can be signed out for the season with a deposit.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for practice related questions or to sign-up for practices.
We could use some volunteers for a few hours to help us get the boats launched. Assistance is needed in uncovering and lifting the boats off the trailers during power wash cleaning, and moving them down to the reservoir at the Heritage Park boat launch.
Please meet us at the first parking lot at Heritage Park for 9:00AM next Saturday, July 31st.
See you back on the water soon, Paddles Up!
