Penrith: Region vs Region

 

Congratulations to all the paddlers who participated in State Championships and the Region vs Region Regatta  on Sunday 20 June which officially closed the DBNSW 20/21 racing season. A highlight was the inaugural Tribe event with Phil sweeping for the Western Region squad.

Tribe is the ultimate six vs six reverse tug of war. Two opposing crews battle on the water with each team aiming to force the opposition back into their den. It is fun, fast, furious, exciting, challenging, social, competitive and powerful (Yes –¬† we ran out of adjectives!). Congratulations to the Western Region Squad who performed well against the other regional teams from the north, south, central and metro regions. And thank you to coaches Louise Linke (Bathurst Pan Dragons) and Assistant Coach Robbie Beet from Colour City! Way to go team/squad!

 

Parkes Anniversary Regatta

It was a glorious day at Lake Endeavour on Sunday 30 May as the Parkes Dragon Boat Club celebrated its three year anniversary with a regatta that was attended by paddlers from Dubbo, Wagga, Orange and Forbes.

Parkes Shire Mayor, Ken Keith OAM, and Member for Orange, Phil Donato, were also present while representatives Paddle NSW were on hand to ensure the regatta was run in accordance with race requirement. Well done everyone!
