DRACO to Participate in BCS Pink Hat Tea Event

Pink Phantoms to attend Pink Hat Tea

As part of its effort to promote its Breast Cancer Survivor (BCS) Dragon Boat Program, members and supporters of DRACO’s Pink Phantoms crew will be participating in this year’s BCS Pink Hat Tea on April 7, an event hosted by the Lutheran Medical Center for the benefit of newly diagnosed and long-term breast cancer survivors.  The theme of this year’s event, to be held at the Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities, is “Brewing Gratitude”, and will focus on finding gratitude in your life and how it fits into healthy survivorship.

We plan to have a dragon boat on display, along with video and/or other promotional materials.  Please join us for this great event, and help support both our program and the local BCS community!

Kamikaze Launches 4000+ in Punkin Chunkin Colorado 2K17

Kamikaze Launches 4000+ in Punkin Chunkin Colorado 2K17!

Click on Photo for Video of Launch!

DRACO was well-represented at this year’s Punkin Chunkin Colorado, a two-day, nationally-sanctioned pumpkin launching competition held in Aurora, Colorado on October 7-8, 2017.  This is an annual event for members of the Phantom Dragons / Pink Phantoms crews, providing an opportunity to gain publicity for DRACO and our breast cancer survivor (BCS) program.

We had a great competition this year. Although we didn’t have quite the distance capability of the two largest air cannons that competed (each of which set a new world record for launch distance, the last an amazing 4,970 feet), we did set a personal record for our launcher of 4,084 feet, earning us a seat in the prestigious 4,000+ Club!

Punkin Chunkin Photos / Video

Photos taken at the event can be seen at the following link.  Also included are a number of photos showing modifications to our compressed air cannon, Kamikaze (Divine Wind) to get it ready for this year’s launch.
