DRAGON BOATING IS IN FULL SWING! If you haven’t yet come out for a practice, you really should try it! We have three teams…one all breast cancer survivor team called the MAMMOGLAMS, a mixed (co-ed) competitive team called the FIRE DRAGONS and an all-woman recreational team called CHIX WITH STIX. Most people on the teams have no experience with dragon boat racing. The beauty of this sport is that it is for everyone, regardless of your athletic ability or size. It is a great cardio workout. We offer practice three times weekly, to allow everyone to make at least one practice. Practices are held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 6:30 pm and on Saturday mornings at 8:00 am. Each session lasts about 1.5 hours. Our teams will attend their first competition on October 20th at Disney in Orlando! If you are interested in learning more about our teams, please contact Joe Longobardi at email@example.com or Jeri Millard at firstname.lastname@example.org. For those people on the teams, please RSVP weekly which sessions you will attend. For more info, visit www.inthepinkdragonboats.com. We are still looking for sponsors for our teams and the boats!!
