The DRACO Mini-Dragon Series has officially begun!
The Dragonboat Racing Association of Colorado (DRACO) has teamed up with Infinite West to help raise funds for Colorado River Headwaters Conservation Education by including a dragon boat division in this year’s Spirit of the Lake Regatta, to be held August 23rd on Grand Lake.
This will mark the first time a dragon boat division has been included in this event (and, the first-ever organized dragon boat racing event in Colorado, apart from the Colorado Dragon Boat Festival). Both the Lao Buddhist and Phantom Dragons teams, coming off very successful performances in this year’s CDBF, are expected to compete. Additional information is included in the downloadable Spirit of the Lake DB Challenge Flyer.
There’s still time to register! Come on out and join in the fun!
On June 21, the Phantom Dragons will be participating in The Longest Day. From sunrise to sunset, we will be paddling dragon boats to raise awareness and funds for the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association, and to provide support for, and increase the visibility of, the fun and exciting sport of dragon boat racing.
Please join us in this effort! We would greatly appreciate it if you would make a monetary contribution and/or help us in obtaining pledges to support these worthwhile causes. If you’re in this area, please come out in person to help in our efforts – it should be a very fun and rewarding day! For more information, see our flyer / pledge form at the following link:
