Please note that the Annual Team Meeting (ATM) will be held at 7.00pm on Saturday 11th April 2015.

The ATM is open to all current members (i.e. those holding Gold, Silver or Bronze membership).  The ATM is free and will include a buffet and drinks, a look back at the 2014 season and an update on our plans for 2015.

2) REGISTER IMMEDIATELY FOR THE MARDI GRAS RACE 

Register immediately for the Mardi Gras Race which is held annually by the American Dragons for paddlers from all of the IDBC International teams.  Registration is open to subs-paying members (i.e. Gold, Silver or Bronze members).

This is a “novelty” race and usually provides a lot of fun and the chance of a medal too.

Paddlers are allocated to the differerent boats randomly – so you’ll be competing alongside paddlers from other teams.

The course is usually about 6Km long and includes various stops along the way to complete challenges (drinking contests, sports challenges and the like).  We usually end up with 2 paddlers from each International team in each of the competing 20 crew boats.

The afternoon concludes with a medal ceremony.  If you register for the race please be punctual so that you can be registered and receive the event wristband which is essential to paddling in the correct boat.
