Putrajaya & Beyond
PUTRAJAYA AND BEYOND | TRAINING THIS WEEK | HALLOWEEN
1) PUTRAJAYA AND BEYOND
Last weekend the BritGe Team (British German Dragons) travelled to Putrajaya, Malaysia to compete in the Malaysia Interntional Dragon Boat Festival 2011.
We entered four race categories and paddled ourselves to two Grand Finals in the Mixed 22 Crew and Ladies 12 Crew races. No bling this time, but we came back with something much better; lots of lovely new friends. It was an awesome weekend and we look forward joining forces as BritGe again in the not too distant future.
Thank you to everyone who helped to make it a great success – BritGe BritGe Hooray!
We will be celebrating our new found friendships with a BritGe social event later this year – more details to follow, so watch this space 🙂
2) TRAINING THIS WEEK
Wednesday training will take place at Farrer Park Swimming Pool as usual this week (Wednesday 26th October at 7pm) but you will not need to take your paddle. The pool will be closed so Jason will be taking land training on the field outside the pool. Please remember to wear trainers or other suitable footwear.
Just a reminder that there will be no training this coming Sunday 30th October 2011.
We will resume our usual training schedule (Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday) from next Wednesday 2nd November 2011 at 7pm.
