The Forbes Dragonboat Club had a very successful and busy season with regional and state championship representation and some outstanding performances by club members competing at several regattas.
The Mulwala challenge with a team paddle of over 20km was described by several members as an event not to be missed
The club coach Carmen Stephens has been an outstanding find this year. Her abil- ity to train and coach the team in all the required technique and skill is great.
The club is very grateful for the sweeps Neil Stephens, Kathryn Sweeney and Bill Thomas. Without these accredited sweeps the club would be unable to operate. It’s also good to see Michael Green and Chris Favell having a go at sweeping.
The club’s annual general meeting is on 6th July at 6:30pm at the Forbes Sports & Recreation club.
If you are interested in dragon boating and would like to come and try, go to Facebook or the website. Serious training will resume in August in preparation for the next sea- son’s regattas and the Kalari–Lachlan River Arts Festival in September.
