As most of you are aware, September is the Month of the Dragon here at the Club. Our largest annual fundraising event, the 23rd Annual Hong Kong Atlanta Dragon Boat Festival is 8th Sept with the months of preparation almost completed...and we need everyone to help out, all hands on deck!
Directly following this is the largest paddling event to hit the venue since 2003 Sprint Worlds. Beginning with the first day of practice 9th Sept, the ICF Dragon Boat World Championships are right here on our home course!
The park, boat ramp and such are all closed for this week as with any world championships security is tight.
