Getting ready for a weekend of dragonboating

June 19, 2009 @ 14:24 By: gordon Category: Dragonboats

In just a few hours, the Ottawa Dragonboat Race Festival kicks off with the Team Captain’s meeting followed by Shanneyganock on stage.

My team, the Algonquin College Singapore Slings, enters the staging area at 10:10 Saturday morning for our race at 10:40. We’ll have a second race sometime in the afternoon. It’s also possible that we’ll be taking part in a third race tomorrow afternoon if we manage to stay in the top 8 teams who raised money for the Ottawa Dragonboat Foundation. Currently (14:20 on Friday), we’re in 8th place and we’re hoping that we stay there once all the offline donations are registered later this evening.

Speaking of donations, I’d like to thank everyone who has sponsored me. You’ve helped raise a lot of money that’s going to be handed out by the Ottawa Dragonboat Foundation to a number of very worthwhile local charities.

To everyone else: It’s not too late to sponsor me. 🙂 You can follow this link or click the button at the top of the column to the right and sponsor me online.  Many thanks for even considering this. 🙂

See you on the water!
