Many thanks to the Arizona Dragon Boat Association for the generous donation of two used 20-man Champion dragon boats and related equipment in support of our non-profit programs and activities. After making the necessary modifications to our trailer, we picked the boats up at the 2018 Arizona Dragon Boat Festival and hauled them back to Denver.
The trip was not without its challenges. We blew a tire on the trailer on the trip down, and blizzard conditions from Pueblo to Denver on the return trip.
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:
