Dear Paddler, sport lovers and supporters
We received the registration document for The 2016 Dragon Boat Race Festival !
This year, the event will take place on Thursday, 9 of June (Tuen Ng Festival, official holiday). Please update your calendar and block the date ! As usual, we will register a Mixed Belgian Team for the race in Stanley and once again we hope for great results and great team spirit.
During the race 18 people have to be on the boat, but we need to have more people in the Team because some of us travel, have family or business obligations and cannot make it every training session. We will accept up to 25 participant for the training session (first come first serve) and participation during the races will depend upon the attendance during the training.
Sponsoring will not cover all costs, and we ask each participant to contribute. This covers the registration fee for the boat, training sessions with a coach and a steersman, the beverage during and after each session, the famous Belgian Red Devils T-shirt and last but not least a lot of fun ! The individual contribution will be of 500 HKD for Belgian club members and 600 HKD for non-members. If your company wants to sponsor or if you have contacts, please send an email to this address or contact us.
