Paddlers wanted for seniors mixed dragonboat team

Men and women looking to form a new seniors competitive team are invited to get in touch with the Fort Langley Canoe Club.

Men and women who are interested in forming a new seniors (ages 60 plus) competitive dragon boat team are invited to get in a meeting Tuesday night in Fort Langley.

Representative Allen Black is looking to form a new mixed team (men and women) that would be bound for the IDBF Club Crew World Championships in 2016 in Adelaide, Australia.

Men, especially, are needed, but also couples, partners and singles are welcome.

The club is hoping to practice at Bedford Channel in the Fraser River at Fort Langley.

Black is a member of the FLCC senior mixed dragonboat team called Fortified, which won gold at the 2014 BC Senior Games in Langley.

“I am attempting to start a New Senior Mixed Dragonboat team for Worlds in 18 months in Australia. We need Men paddlers mostly,but also women,” he said.

Paddlers aged 60 plus are asked to call Black at 604-309-0667. The meeting is at the Fort Langley Community Hall, Tuesday, Oct. 14, from 7-9 p.m.

“All those interested will be invited to a meeting to decide how to best meet this goal as there are many options,” he said. “These decisions need to be made quickly  – the team will need to attend qualifier races and IDBF CC Nationals in Welland, Ontario during 2015 to earn their spot to go to IDBF CC Worlds 2016 in Australia.”
