Dragon Boat Races Return to Dexter Lake
Eugene, Ore. - Community teams are registering now for the 3rd Annual Heroes to Oregon (H2o) Dragon Boat Paddle Challenge on Saturday, October 15, 2016. You don't need any experience to participate, just 10 people 14 years or older who are willing to paddle their hearts out for a minute and a half.
This event is design as a fun paddle for people who have never
set foot on a dragon boat, but would like to try the sport and have a fun day
on the water. The event is unique in that corporate/community division teams
are assigned an experienced coach/caller for the day who will instruct the
novice team on basic dragon boat technique and usher them through the event.
The Paddle Challenge is sponsored, in part, by Guaranty
Chevrolet and RV Services, and is organized by Eugene, Cascades &
Coast Sports, Emerald City Dragon Boat Club and the City of Eugene Adaptive
Divisions include mixed or women's novice/corporate and mixed or women's experienced. Mixed teams must include a minimum of five women.
