cutline: Several youth have signed up for the new Harrison Optimist Eagles Team

Harrison Lake’s Eagles on a roll

More young dragon boat paddlers needed to fill the boat

With only two practices under some of their belts the Harrison Optimist Eagles Youth team have learned how to make their dragon boat fly through the waters of Harrison Lake.

They are still looking for more youth (male and female) between the ages of 12-18 years to fill the team for the upcoming dragon boat season.

If you’ve ever wondered what dragon boating is all about, you are invited to come out and give it a try.

Call Kathy at 604-819-1676 or 604-792-9336 to sign up. There is no cost to all youth, as the youth team is fortunate to be fully sponsored this year, by the Optimist Club. Coaching is supplied for free as well. The team practices on Harrison Lake every Saturday morning, from 9:30 a.m.-11:30 a.m.
