Message from the President

White-Eagle PerryWelcome paddlers, to another year of dragon boat racing.

Since last season the race club has undergone some changes. Most notably we now have an executive board that are in charge of making sure the race club grows and gives the best opportunity for every paddler to learn, grow, and enjoy dragon boat racing.

We are now separated from Dragon 5280, the organization that runs the Colorado Dragon Boat Festival (CDBF), but fully at work helping teams prepare for that regatta, as well as any others they may be interested in. For example, CU Denver will be going to Hong Kong in June 2018 to race there.

Rates have increased with our increased expenses. We also offer this website that streamlines registration, team management, and keeping in touch with each and every club member.

At the end of the season we will have a club-wide gathering for all members. This will provide an opportunity to vote on issues, thus helping the club move forward in the direction the members would like to see it go. As I have said in the past when I was just helping with scheduling, help me help you. Give me your input on how we can become a better race club.

With all that said, let me finish by saying I look forward to seeing old faces and new ones, and working with all of you to make your dragon boat experience and club membership memorable.

With All Good Medicine,
White-Eagle
President, Mile High Dragon Boat Race Club
