Central West Regatta

Our men paddled with Hawkesbury River Dragons and came away with bronze.

The 6 November dawned  another great day for the 8th Annual Central West Challenge.

It was sunny but windy with a little chill in the air (especially for sweeps and drummers) – home town advantage!

Our men’s and women’s teams paddled with the Hawkesbury River Dragons while Colour  City fielded a full boat in the mixed.

We were delighted to be in the finals for the mixed race and overjoyed that our men won bronze in their final.

The results can be viewed on the Dragon Boats NSW site.

Wagga Wagga here we come.

Summer’s here!

summerIf you’ve been in Orange over the past week or so you might laugh at the ‘Summer’s here’ headline with temperatures decidedly on the ‘cool’ side.

However Daylight Saving has officially begum and so the mighty Colour City Dragons have moved into their summer training timetable:

  • Tuesday 5.45pm for 6pm on the water
  • Thursday 5.45pm for 6pm on the water
  • Saturday 7.15am for 7.30 on the water

To make training go smoothly please be on time so that we can have many hands to pull the boat out, warm up and be on the water for a full session of fun.

Also remember to update the Doodle Poll so we know how many people to expect – useful in deciding how many boats to get ready.

Paddles UP!
