It’s been a long time now since we loaded the boat and paddled the creek, BUT we are all hoping that this is not far off now.

Our executive committee met last weekend to formulate a plan to get our sport up and running again.

This plan has been forwarded to Dragon Boat QLD (DBQ) for approval, ensuring it meets the Covid-19 requirements. So watch this space!

In the meantime land exercising continues and also members are getting out on the water kayaking instead of Dragon paddling.

Something special, we now have two great grandmothers in our club. Jan Low has a great grandson and a great granddaughter, while Norma Sanderson has just become a great grandmother with the arrival of her first great grandson a few weeks ago.

Both women are very fit and active members not only of our club, but also in the wider community.

Dragon boating is certainly great for good health and fitness.
