Pulling Together

Fraser Valley Dragon Boat teams race at Harrison

Submitted by Norm Torp, FVDBC


Team Chilliwack shows off their hardware after finishing in the top berth at the Dragon Boat Community Challenge last weekend at Harrison.


he Fraser Valley Dragon Boat Club hosted the annual Community Challenge dragon boat races on Harrison Lake. This year six corporate teams participated in several weeks of training and practice followed by the day’s fun and competitive racing.


Members of many of the teams echoed similar sentiments - the experience of having co-workers pulling together in a dragon boat, sharing this unique sport and experience, and having fun promotes camaraderie, team building and positive energy among each team.


A day of friendly competition and great racing had teams already talking about coming back next year. Bragging rights and this year’s trophy for first place went to the City of Chilliwack.


If you would like to build a corporate team to compete in next year’s event, or try the sport of dragon boating or outrigger canoe paddling, contact the Fraser Valley Dragon Boat Club.
