Do Something Different This Australia Day!

Why not try Dragon Boating?

Aussie Dragon





On Australia Day 2015 ( Monday 26 January) Colour City Dragons will be having a ‘come and try’ session at Lake Canobolas. We will be there between 11am – 2pm and would love to share our love of paddling with others. Our informal ‘do you want to have a go?’ invitation to folk at the Lake on New Year’s Day resulted in a number of converts.

Encourage friends, colleagues and family to come and see what all the fuss is about before perhaps enjoying a picnic at the home of paddling in Orange, our beautiful Lake.

Silver and Bronze!



Members of the team who travelled to Wagga Wagga last weekend are still smiling following a great day of paddling.Thanks to everyone involved especially to Phil and Lynette who juggled our teams with great aplomb. And wasn’t it wonderful to head to the marshalling area to be met by our ‘own’ volunteer, June.

June Partnering with the Lachlan Dragons (Forbes) in all races plus the Albury Warriors in the women’s races we made all 3 finals  and came away with a second (men) and a third (women’s). All races were close, especially the mixed which you ‘could have thrown a blanket over’ all 4 boats at the finish.Sean is to be congratulated for his brave sweeping (it was very nearly deja vu in the first mixed race with the Snow Dragon’s sweep heading for the wrong buoy).


As usual it was all the extras that made it very ‘Colour City’ –

  • the usual gourmet feast contributed by many with Rhonda remembering the niceties of plates, napkins and wipes
  • our marquee – what a stand out it is – everyone knew we were there.
  • the sense of joy and general gorgeousness that surrounds us!


If you haven’t put your name down for Chinese New Year (28th Feb next year) please do so in the next week as entries are due soon.

We are also considering either taking a team or a group of volunteers to the Nowra regatta on the 10th January.  An EOI sheet will be a training or just let either Phil or Lynette know.
