Bronze Medal at Rio Tinto Alcan

Another fine finish at the 2010 Rio Tinto Alcan International Dragon Boat Festival for the Killarney paddlers.

The KDBRC finished third in the "C" division final of the youth paddlers earning a well deserved Bronze medal.

A Brand New Season is Under Way

The 2010 Cougar Dragons are up and at 'em and paddling once again in False Creek. A late beginning because of the Olympics hasn't stopped us one bit. With just practices under our belt we participated in the 500m Sprint Races and managed a very respectable 4th place in each of our heats. Now looking forward to the Junior Regatta (May 15) and the Dragon Zone 500 (June 5/6) and of course he big one Rio Tinto Alcan June 18-20. Come on down on Wednesday afternoons to cheer us on.
