LAMMA  DRAGONS  2003


Welcome to the 2003 Season! To get us going gently, and get the new members up to speed, we start training in February, details to follow:

 

Go to:  Training, Membership Fees, Competitive/Social, Teams, Races, Sponsorships, Fundraising,

Committee, Women's Team, Men's Team
 

 

1.      AND WE’RE OFF!!
 

Training takes place on both Saturdays and Sundays and takes 2 – 2 1/2 hours each session. We appreciate people have jobs and families! Please attend as many sessions as you can! It only takes longer if you stop for drinks afterwards. We start training on

 

Saturday 22nd Feb   4.30 pm – 6:30pm

Sunday 23rd Feb      3.00 pm – 5.00 pm

 

·        Please meet outside the Library, ON TIME PLEASE, for warm up and briefing (30 mins).

·        We will have a gentle introduction to new season.

·        It is important for everyone, especially all new paddlers, to attend the first sessions!!

 

2.      TRAINING
 

We meet at the library.

 

Saturday         4.30 pm – 6:30pm

Sunday           3.00 pm – 5.00 pm

 

Sessions last approx   2 hours

 

·        Please be on time for warm up and briefing on training /races etc (30 mins).

·        If you CANNOT ATTEND A SESSION or will be LATE, please call either Katie or Claire in advance. We pay for the boat hire unless we cancel in ADVANCE so please make excuses as early as possible.

·     Bring clothes that can (and will) get wet in the boat, and dry clothes, towel, shampoo, talc, etc. for after training. It is cold standing around in wet clothes early in the year.

·        Training will start on time, latecomers will be picked up, so can still paddle (so no excuses!!)

·        IMPORTANT!! If not enough people turn up for the session then it will be CANCELLED. This denies those who turned up a chance to train – and we pay for it too.

 

3.      MEMBERSHIP FEES
 

Membership will be the same as last season, $750 PER PADDLER for the season, payable after the first weekend in the water (latest Saturday 1st March) and are non-refundable.

 

1st timers – only – are given their first session free as a try-out. After that they must pay full membership if they wish to continue – and we hope you do.

 

Fees cover training –  almost. Other expenses (entrance fees, dinner, kit etc) are covered by fundraisers and sponsorship. Please enthusiastically support all fund raisers. There may be small additional costs, such as buses to races, etc.

 

Please note: fees do not cover travel to Penang!!

 

4.      COMPETITIVE / SOCIAL

 

Please indicate to Claire or Katie the level you wish to paddle at. Competitive level needs a lot of commitment, both to attending training sessions and races or you may face disappointment (pls don’t let that put you off, it’s great fun, and there’s nothing like coming home with a cup and a medal!). However, if you specify that you can train both Saturday and Sunday it will be assumed that you will!!

 

5.      TEAMS
 

Please note that Selection will be based on a number of aspects altogether:

 

·        Attendance:

It is important to note that attendance to all or most training sessions alone does not automatically guarantee a place in a race although we will always try to give everyone some race experience – whether it be in heats or finals.

·        Attitude and team spirit :

There is no ‘me’ in a team!!

·        Strength and fitness levels:

This is really important, as dragon boating is about good stamina, with an explosive finish (remind you of anything?!). To help with this, please either do mid week circuit training, or join a gym. The Lamma gym is giving discounts to Lamma Dragons members, and is getting paddling machines!!!!

·        Previous experience

Any fund-raiser ideas please pass on to Pauline. Remember we need to raise as much as possible AND have fun whilst doing it!!  Past activities include Wine Tasting, Jumble sale and Champagne Breakfast, The Big Games Fund-raiser & Raffle.
