Abu Dhabi Race moves to 5/6th October 2012 and a special summer deal on racing shirts
ABU DHABI DATE CHANGE | “NEW” RACE SHIRTS AT “OLD” PRICES IN OUR SPECIAL SUMMER DEAL (BUT HURRY..!) |
1) ABU DHABI DATE CHANGE
The dates of the Shangri-La Abu Dhabi Dragon Boat Festival have been changed by the organisers. It now appears that this race will be held on:
Friday 5th and Saturday 6th October 2012
Please re-register your intentions immediately at:
It is likely that the contingent will fly out on Wednesday 3rd October and return on Sunday 7th October (though this is still subject to confirmation, flight availability, etc.).
Please indicate “Yes” / “No” / “Maybe” (if you are a “Maybe” then please tell us why in the notes box).
Even if you are not planning to participate in the Abu Dhabi race then please take a few moments to fill out the form so that the Captains can plan accordingly.
2) “NEW” RACE SHIRTS AT “OLD” PRICES IN OUR SPECIAL SUMMER DEAL (BUT HURRY..!)
New race shirts (with logos of our sponsors Dragon Boat Innovate and RedDot) have arrived. Due to an increase in supplier pricing these will cost $35.
But until midnight on 31st August 2012 we have a special “summer deal” – ‘new’ race shirts at the ‘old’ price of only $30.
So this is a great time to stock up on fresh kit for the upcoming races. Email Gill now with your requirements and size to seal the deal!
As from 1st September 2012 racing and drinking shirts will be priced at $35 (for members and non-members)
And from shirts to shorts: if your new racing top makes your appearance at races look spiffy then don’t short-change your nether regions. You certainly don’t want your undercarriage attire getting short-shrift and below-the-belt comments from team mates as your ageing velcro is rent asunder at the meekest attempt at a Sumo during warm-ups…
Gill has procured some Men’s beach-style shorts with mesh pant lining – navy blue with union jack logo (the same as Paul has been modelling recently).
Only 10 pairs are available at just $30 each – so first come first serve.
Here are the available sizes:
Small – waist up to 81cm / 32″
Medium – waist 84-89cm / 33-35″
Large – waist 91-96cm / 36-38″
(note that the sizes come up slightly on the large side).
We now also have waterproof British Dragons stickers at $3 each.
Coat of arms on clear background (does not show up well on dark colours): 4 3/4″ by 3 3/4″
Dragon logo blue with white border: 3 1/2″ by 5 1/2″
For all your kit orders and enquiries just drop Gill an email:
See you at training at the weekend,
All the best,
Philip N. Morgan – Team Secretary
British Dragons – Singapore
