The Parkes Dragon Boat Club enjoyed a fun-filled final paddle of the season last Sunday, sharing the beautiful Lake Endeavour with 24 black swans and ending the session with a paddling tug-of-war.
“With the help of so many great members we’ve achieved a massive amount in our first year, including boats, trailers and equipment,” said Club President, Bill Thomas.
“But what we are most proud of is the strength in our membership and the real friendship among those members. It is a privilege to belong to this club.”
“We’ve also competed successfully in many events around the state, including representation at Nationals,” said current Coach Beth Thomas, “and I’m really proud of how this crew strives for continual improvement.”
The Club will recess for July and early August, meeting again at their scheduled AGM on 11 August at 11:00am, returning to paddling the following week. Anyone who is interested in Dragon Boating is warmly invited to attend the AGM at Parkes Services Club and join the members for a bistro lunch afterwards.
