Fraser Valley paddling club looking for local members

Free info nights in Agassiz planned to help build dragon boat club numbers

Dragon boating is one of the most popular recreational opportunities on Harrison Lake, but it’s one that not many local residents are taking part in.

Many of the members of the Fraser Valley Dragon Boat Club come from Chilliwack, Hope, and even the Vancouver area.

To help drum up local paddlers, one of the club’s teams has partnered with the Kent Fitness/ Activity Centre to host two free information nights.

The Crusaders will host the nights, running January 31 and February 7, at 7 p.m. The club has room for paddlers of all ages and abilities, with women only teams, mixed teams and even a team for youth. Teams meet once or twice a week at Harrison Lake, compete in regattas around the province, and host community events throughout the year in Harrison.

Paddlers are given support from experienced team members and coaches, and equipment (paddles and life jackets) are provided.

For more information, contact kgoulet@ district.kent.bc.ca or Manfred Preuss (Crusaders coach) at derfnam57@hotmail.com.
