DRAGON BATTLE RACE AND VOLUNTEER GUIDE | TRAINING TIMES REVISED DURING DRAGON BATTLE WEEKEND |
1) DRAGON BATTLE RACE AND VOLUNTEER GUIDE
If you are Racing or Volunteering this Saturday 16th May 2015 at the Dragon Battle you need to be at the Orchid Country Club venue at 08.30am. Orchid country Club is near Seletar Reservoir.
All racers have already had their status confirmed by Laura in an email sent by her last week. Volunteer helpers will be briefed at the venue when they arrive.
If you have any ‘problem’ with arrival on the day please call Laura or Philip.
The Battles start at 10.00am and finish at 9.00pm (if we get through to the finals). There will be a Pool Party afterwards!
The address is: 1 Orchid Club Road, Singapore 769162
Nearest MRT station is Yishun MRT where there is a free shuttle bus that will take you to Orchid Country Club.
At the end of the night, for those that aren’t staying at the Orchid Country Club, there will be 2 buses (45 seater) arranged to ferry participants to a few areas. The buses will leave at 00.30hrs. One bus will go East, the other West – see details below:
Bus 1: OCC > Khatib MRT > Ang Mo Kio MRT > Bedok MRT
Bus 2: OCC > City Hall > Clementi MRT
Please wear black shorts and your British Dragons racing shirt. You may also wish to bring your British Dragons drinking shirt for the party afterwards plus a change of clothes, swimwear, towel, water bottle, Cap, etc.
Finally spectators and guests – anyone is welcome to come and watch, but we do have to register all spectators with the organisers, therefore please reply back to confirm if you would like to come. Spectators will be charged $30 (this includes the party and food I understand).
There are a few rooms that we have on hold for the team at the Orchid Country Club if you would like to stay on Saturday night. You can fit 3 people in a room (one queen size bed, one single), and the rate is $120++ including breakfast. If you would like to stay, please confirm asap and it will be on a first come, first served basis.
On Sunday 17th May 2015 Volunteers will be needed from 9.00am up to about 5.00pm. This is the Community Day, so if you are volunteering on the Saturday it is expected that you would also be there on Sunday to help out.
Normal training will continue at Kallang for anyone who isn’t participating or supporting the Dragon Battle but times are revised (see below).
2) TRAINING TIMES REVISED DURING DRAGON BATTLE WEEKEND
On Saturday 16th May 2015 we’ll be competing in the Dragon Battle event.
Please note that we will still have training this weekend but that the times of training will be revised. This is to adhere to a training restriction at Kallang Basin on the Saturday (due to the SEA Games) and to allow us to have a lie-in on the Sunday after Dragon Battle.

Sunday 17th May – Meet at Kallang at 3.30pm (on the water from 4.00pm – 5.30pm)
