If you are going to Korea you may wish to take along some spare or “retired” kit to swap with competing teams.  Please note that when flying into Korea you should wear your team drinking shirt and “Korea” team jacket (you may also wear the team pants if you wish).

3) BEACH BBQ

This is the last call for the Beach BBQ to be held after training on Saturday 27th August 2011.  You can pay your $10 BBQ fee to Mifie at training on Saturday.

If you wish to attend please register before midnight on Thursday 25th August at:

www.britishdragonboat.com/bbq-registration/

4) PUTRAJAYA RACE REGISTRATION

This is also the last chance to register for the Putrjaya (Malaysia) race weekend on 22nd and 23rd October 2011.

It is planned to depart by coach early on Friday 21st October and to have return coaches on the Sunday and Monday (so that those who wish to stay on for the Sunday night farewell party can do so).

Only members who have previously raced in Singapore will be eligible to compete in the Putrajaya races.  Registration will close at midnight on Saturday 27th August 2011. You can register online now at:

5) SAVA SPRINTS RACE DINNER

We will be holding our race dinner on Sunday 11th September 2011 at RedDot Dempsey.  If you are competing in the races then this dinner is included in your race fee.  If you are supporting (or would like to bring a guest) then the charge is $30.

Everyone attending (or bringing a guest) must register attendance online and select a choice of meal before midnight on Tuesday 6th September 2011. You can register your attendance and select your meal at:

www.britishdragonboat.com/dinner-registration/

If you do not register your attendance – and select a choice of meal – then it will be assumed that you cannot come to the race dinner and so NO MEAL will be cooked for you (to avoid food wastage).

Our Treasurer Mel reminds members that to enjoy your sponsor rebates at RedDot you need to follow a simple procedure:

1) Show your team membership card before ordering
2) Ensure that both the white and yellow receipts are “chopped” by your server when you pay
3) Pass your “chopped” customer receipt back to Mel

.8) HANDY ‘CUT-OUT-AND-KEEP-GUIDE’ TO SPONSOR BENEFITS

A much valued part of The British Dragon Boat team and its’ continued existence is due to our valued sponsors and their generous financial support.

Please help the team by being a patron of their shops, restaurants, bars and services.

All our valued sponsors can be found with direct links on our website but we thought it would be helpful to give everyone a breakdown of what each of them offers the team and its paddlers.

See you at training at the weekend.  And Korea here we come!

All the best,
