ST. GEORGE MEETS THE DRAGON (BOAT) |
1) ST. GEORGE MEETS THE DRAGON (BOAT)
In April Saint George’s Day is celebrated in England and we’ve decided this is a great opportunity to bring this traditional English celebration to Singapore and to give it a modern twist with some medieval revelry.
What: ….. St. George’s Paddle and BBQ
Where:….. Kallang at 10.30am (NO Sunday morning training on that day!)
When:….. Sunday 21st April 2013
Price:….. $20 (payable to the Social Secretaries at training)
Set in the time of the Crusaders, you and your team will be given the challenge to slay the dragon and save the princess. Be ready to surrender your swords and pick up your paddles as we joust for success.
Please dress up for the occasion – we will be in need of knights, Kings and Ladies – and prepare to go to battle.
At the end of the race we will celebrate our victory with a traditional medieval meal – Meat and Mead!*
All you need to do is register via: www.britishdragonboat.com/stgeorge/
Please resgister YES/NO before Tuesday 16 April 2013.
* Of course learned hagiologists have for centuries debated whether St George was in fact a vegetarian. Rumours abound that whilst Crusaders, Ladies and Nobles would extravagantly feast on roast hog, disembowled swan (with apple cinnamon relish), pigeon pie or similar meaty delicacies, St George would eschew the weighty platters. Instead he could often be spotted chatting up a fair maiden in the kitchen
whilst skillfully wielding his sword to rustle up a potato salad or to prepare spinnach leaves to create a hearty “tart spinnage”. In view of this the Social Secretaries will certainly be providing some vegetarian choices at the feasting in honour of his enlightened lifestyle!
2) HAVE ANY TEAM PADDLES OR PFD’S AT HOME?
All the best,
