The Dragon Zone Paddling Club is pleased to announce our second annual Dragon Zone Paddler's Expo on Saturday March 9th from noon to 4:30PM at the Creekside Community Centre, home of the Dragon Zone Paddling Club.
 
The Dragon Zone Paddling Club Expo is a great place to try out dragon boating, meet teams, paddlers and visit vendors including fitness professionals and therapists. It’s a place for teams to recruit new paddlers, paddlers to find a new team and to attend skill workshops.

The tryouts are free but registering is the only way to secure a spot on the boat. http://vancouver.ca/parks-recreation-culture/creekside-community-recreation-centre.aspx

Thank you to everyone who attended the Paddler's Expo this past weekend.

Thank you to all the teams that participated by setting up a recruitment table. We hope that you got a few good leads to help fill your team's roster and had an opportunity to promote your team to the community.

Thank you to Amanda and her team for putting on the Scooter races throughout the event. Great fun was had by all who participated in the races.

If anyone would like to provide us with feedback on what worked and what didn't work or suggestions on how we can improve this event, please feel free to send me your comments at nc.ncdragon@gmail.com.
