Competitive Dragon Boat Events
What to expect ....
Race fee: $$ Amount varies by event and is paid by each paddler. You can view payment methods on the Pay Dues page or pay by cash/check to our Treasurer.
Hotel: Co-Captains will reserve blocks of rooms, usually at the hotel-of-choice of the event. Paddlers can make arrangements with teammates to share a room, or not, then make & pay for their room from the reserved block reservation. Expect a 1 to 2 night stay. The one exception is the event in Beaufort, SC. That's a day trip.
Getting there: We'll get a conversation going prior to Race Day to help coordinate carpools and/or caravans.
Food: We always have a water and food table on Race Day. Co-Captains will help coordinate who brings what. Meals are on your own, but do generally get together somewhere after the race.
Race Day Details: A Co-Captain or Coach will provide detailed information regarding where and when to arrive for Race Day events.
