Hi All, 

Haven't been too active on the posting front for a few seasons but thought that I'd zip out a quick thanks for all of the support the DB community has given (and in particular the West Coast DB community) to the San Francisco International Dragon Boat Festival.   

I was quite surprised during these rougher economic times to see strong than ever demand for teams coming to SF.  We sold out early even after expanding the slots for visiting crews.  We now have a record 36 visiting crews that will be joining 30 local crews in the Rec/Comp division for what looks to be a great weekend of racing!   Adding the Rec/Comp to our Novice/Corporate and High School divisions and we have a fun but portly race grid that is bulging at the seems along with the secondary race divisions (Gender, Masters, and visiting team).

We'll try to get some results up as soon as possible so you can track how your favorite crews are doing.   Despite the race in Shanghai, the Canadian contingent coming down looks solid and set to  try to extend the tradition of singing O'Canada at the awards ceremony.   Certainly the local and other visiting crews will try to cast their vote against that outcome !  But it should be fun regardless and thanks again for your support. 

Best,

Hans

We look forward to the upcoming weekend of fun.

Good luck Dragnum!
(& all other Canadian teams)

I was lucky enough to be on the crew that broke the curse and what an amazing race and time it was, apparently the audience went silent 3/4's through the race when they realized we were winning. I recall the local teams checking out our times throughout the day and noticing that we were seconds behind in other heats. Never worry about that, it's the head to head racing that counts.

Hopefully Puppy will be there to cheer you on and put a lucky loonie under your drum.

Paddle your hearts out!

PS: It was great racing against you in Kelowna, we enjoyed the push to excel (even at our age  Shocked) and to race like we were 20 again!

Haha I think you're getting Dragon Hearts Magnum confused with Dragnum. Haha, if you meant us Magnum paddlers, it was great racing Masters this past weekend in the semis and finals! You guys definitely pushed us to our limits! Hope both rosters stay strong, so we can continue to push each other next season!
