EFB Girl Power Year End Party! NEW DATE!!!

EFB Girl Power Year End Party!

All of the dancers need to sign the online waiver for dragon boating on the edbrc website. The start time will be 4:30 pm.  We will be ready for pick-up between 6:30 and 7:00pm.

Where:  Edmonton Dragon Boat Racing Club (EDBRC)10296 87 St NW, Edmonton, AB T5H 3T2
Down in the valley by Dawson bridge, across from Riverside Golf Course, down the hill from McNally
Why? As 22 people move in unison, Dragon Boat Racing is a great team building activity, which can also lead to personal gains in strength and flexibility.  Most importantly, it’s a great opportunity to have fun with both people you know and new people you meet.
Dragon boat racing originates from China where legend has it that a poet named Yuan was expelled from his office by a corrupt administration.  Protesting the corruption, Yuan drowned himself in the Mi Lo River, near present day Yue Yang.  Local fishers, seeing his plight, rushed out in boats to try and save him, but were unsuccessful.  In order to keep evil spirits away from his body, they beat drums and splashed the water with their paddles.  They also threw rice in the water as a food offering to Yuan and to distract the fish away from his body.  Late one night, the spirit of Yuan appeared before his friends and told them that he died because of a river dragon.  Since that day, the act of racing to find Yuan’s body has been commemorated in an annual festival, which has evolved into present-day dragon boat racing.
Terra and Nancy will transport the girls down to the EDBRC.  If any of the girls can drive, please let us know.  The girls will be in a Dragon Boat on the river from 4:30 – 5:30.  Please wear shoes that can get wet, and clothes that are comfortable.  Please bring a hat, sunscreen and bug spray.

After the river, we will meet at the picnic area just around the corner from EDBRC and have sandwiches and water.  Please have running shoes with you for this as we may play some games.  EFB will be providing all the food and drinks for this party.

Year-end event – POSTPONED!

Hello everyone!

The very poor, windy weather has meant that we have to cancel our Dragon Boat Adventure for tomorrow night.  Nancy has contacted the company and we have re-booked for next Tuesday, June 19th.  We are hoping for 4:30pm on the water, but we don’t know for sure yet!

We’ll be in touch with more details as soon as we have them!

Terra and Nancy
