Friends Abreast have taken our boat out of the water
We ran out of water, so on September 9th we took our boat out of Shuswap Lake. Our loyal old dragon boat needed to be cleaned up a lot. With many hands, special soap and two power washers she looks like new again. Once cleaned we put her back in her resting place till spring. The group then went out for a Chinese dinner at Wings.
This year our team was so united and were able to achieve two second place ribbons. Our coach brought out the best in us and we worked hard, but still had lots of laughter and fun.
Although the festival in Salmon Arm was cut short due to weather, we paddled hard and came in 2nd in the women's division
Vernon was a HOT HOT venue. The team went for a quick dip, uniforms and all to cool off. It must have helped as we came in 2nd in the B division - way to go team!
We have purchased a CHBC Good News Bear to be dressed as a dragon boater and used as a fund raiser.
Friends Abreast have a very unique bond. We are always there for each other whether in the boat or on land.
We are always looking for BC Survivors to come aboard. No experience necessary we will teach you how to paddle.
