On September 9, 2017 the Dragonboat Racing Association of Colorado (DRACO) provided a dragon boat and paddles for display and photo opportunities as part of the LBT Black Tie Fundraiser Dinner, an event to benefit the local Lao Buddhist Temple. It was a very fun event, and everyone had a wonderful time.
On June 21, 2K14, the Phantom Dragons competitive dragon boat team participated in The Longest Day, a sunrise to sunset event to raise funds for the Alzheimer’s Association, and to provide support for, and increase the visibility of, the fun and exciting sport of dragon boat racing.
Joined by our Lao Buddhist Team friends, our paddlers started the day at Union Reservoir (Longmont, CO), paddling as part of the pre-race festivities at the annual Kinetics Sculpture Race. We then finished things off on home turf at Lake Arbor in Arvada (where we hold our practice sessions).
Great paddling was had by all, and it was an awesome event to support a worthwhile cause!
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:
