Friends Abreast Dragon Boating
In late September the team reluctantly cleaned and moved the boat to winter storage. We celebrated a first place win in June at the Salmon Arm Festival. Later in August we placed second at the Vernon Festival. Teammate Leanne skied the water ski challenge while we paddled hard to get her up giving us first place in the challenge.
Many of our practices were held in 30 plus degree heat this year. The heat did not discourage the paddlers and the boat was usually filled each and every time we went out.
In September our team decorated our float for the Salmon Arm Fall Fair parade and we marched together carrying our pink and white umbrellas to provide shade from the sun!
Our team of Breast Cancer Survivors and their Supporters also participate in awareness projects throughout the year. New members are always welcome.
Thank you to steersman Byril for his unlimited support in all projects. Without the help of Byril and his team of husbands and partners it would be impossible to complete our paddling season with such ease.
We are always looking for BC Survivors to come aboard. No experience necessary we will teach you how to paddle.
