Give it a go

Join the Dragon Boat club for fitness and fun

Join the Dragon Boat club for fitness and fun

The Cooloola Dragons presented themselves at the ”Who’s at the Zoo” at Rainbow Beach to encourage locals to participate in Dragon Boating at Tin Can Bay. Here’s hoping for an influx in 2018.

We are a social club but also join in serious sports regattas, paddling against other South Queensland clubs.

The social gathering of the Club’s ‘Pizza Night’ went well, with some creative pizzas made.  The weather was kind so the pizzas were cooked to perfection in Norma’s pizza oven.

The paddlers are now starting intensive training to gain fitness and strength to be able to be competitive at the State Titles in February and Nationals in March.

Any interested new paddlers wanting to give paddling a go, it would be best to come on down to the Yacht Club hardstand on a Sunday at 7.30am.

Sunday is usually a more relaxed and social paddle. We don’t expect new paddlers do the intense work which established paddlers are doing.

Please slip, slop, slap and bring water. If interested in paddling please phone Norma on 0439075271.

Training stops December 17 with our end of year function, and we return January 7.

Merry Christmas everyone and stay safe if travelling on the roads.
