On November 21, 2012 by Jean-Benoît_Delpy_Bourcart




Here are the training dates for the rest of 2012.  Please note that Sunday sessions are retimed to the afternoon so that we can train for Penang with the Spanish Armada.

Wednesday 21st November – 7.00pm – Farrer Park Pool

Sunday 25th November – 3.30pm – Kallang

Wednesday 28th November – 7.00pm – Farrer Park Pool

Saturday 1st December – 3.30pm – Kallang

Sunday 2nd December – 3.30pm – Kallang

Wednesday 5th December – 7.00pm – Farrer Park Pool

There will be no Training Sessions thereafter in 2012 (as we will be in Penang and on a training break afterwards).

We will have the Christmas Paddle on Saturday 15th December 2012 at 3.30pm at Kallang (the Christmas Party will be in the evening).

Training will restart in 2013 on Saturday 12th January at 3.30pm at Kallang.



If you have registered for the GMC then you need to be at Kallang at 12.00 noon on Saturday 24th November for registration. No fee will be charged.

Please bring along water and snacks as it might be quite a long afternoon of Pull and Push!

Please note that we can only enter one boat so if we qualify in the Heats the Captains will probably swap paddlers so that everyone can get the chance to take part.

If you have any queries about your inclusion in the squad then please email Nicky:

Directly after the German Maneuver Cup we will be going to a special GMC After-Party with the rest of the International Dragonboat community.

As it is coming up to the end of the year now is the time to dig out your photos for our photo competition – there’ll be a prize at the Annual Team Meeting for the best one!

Tho photos should show you wearing an item of team kit (a shirt, jacket, cap or bandana etc.) but NOT at training.  You might be up a mountain, in a canoe, in a distant land or propping up a local bar – but wherever you are you are promoting the team by wearing an item of kit.  Send your best shots now to:

Good luck!

See you at Farrer Park for training on Wednesday,
