Come and try with Cooloola Dragons

by Norma Sanderson

The Cooloola Dragons combined with Hervey Bay and Bundaberg paddlers and competed in the Manly Regatta at Kawana in November.

The combined Women’s 10’s team (10 paddlers in a boat) came away with a third place in the final. A great effort against top teams from South East Queensland. Well done girls!

The second ‘Come and try’ dragon boating day was held on Sunday, November 13. The weather was kind and several people gave it a go.

We are hoping more prospective paddlers will turn up to our next paddle on Sunday, December 11. Meet at the Yacht Club at 9.30am and join in, you will never know unless you try.

We are all hooked on Dragon Boat paddling as a source of exercise, friendly competition and social activities. Remember to bring hat, sunscreen and water.

The Dragons take a break over the Christmas, New Year period; so hoping to see you all next year. A very merry Christmas and happy new year to you all.

Our next members and friends social activity will be our end of year luncheon on Sunday, December 18 at Silky Oaks. Each year we endeavour to support our local venues to have some type of celebration.

Our thoughts are with our head coach Gayle, who is back in hospital in Brisbane.

Hoping to see you on the water.
