1770 Dragons Encourage Young Paddlers

1770 Dragons encourage young paddlers, and look towards 2016 State Titles! It has been an exciting time for Agnes Water State School students who have been hitting the water for Friday afternoons sport with the 1770 Dragons, pictured at right.

In other Dragon boating news, last Sunday Dragons Jen Hansen, Lisa Scott, Angie Draheim and Jamie Bartholomew travelled to Bundaberg to attend a training session conducted by Australian Dragon Boat coaches.

Members of AusBDF and Dragon Boat Queensland were in town because Bucca Weir has been named as the new venue for the Queensland State Titles in 2016.

Visitors viewed the venue and were suitably impressed.

While they were in the area, coaches Maggie and Ross Boyce and Dragon Boat officials met with members of local teams and put paddlers and steerers through their paces.

It was a hard session but extremely worthwhile.
