From Dawn Roughsedge‎, Lamma Dragons:

"And the results are - a fantastic, enthusiastic, happy, positive day of racing - the team were awesome!

U18's: Gold! and Bronze! Amazing energy and great attitude by our Lamma stars!

Women: Silver in 1000m, 4th in 500m (just being nudged out of medals - boo!)

Men: Gold in 1000m, 5th in 500m (fastest race of the day and guys coming in a 2.02 for 500m - fantastic!)
Mixed A-boat: 500m - Just nudged out of cup final so into plate final, but we managed to get both the Gold and the Bronze.

All in all - after 11 weeks worth of training, an excellent day's tally! Go Lamma!"


More results on the official website and here:

From the Lamma Dragons:

Head 'em up, move 'em out! Lets get the whip cracking cowboys and cowgirls!

This fundraiser will be held on Saturday 24 May 2014, at the Island Bar kicking off at 7pm.

Funds raised at this event will help our team to enter local races, and maintain our training boats and equipment.

They participated in their first race this year and will be racing in another 3 events in 2014. The Lamma Dragons have contributed $8000 towards the Youth Team (not including boat, paddle and life jacket purchase). Our aim is to make dragon boating accessible to all children on Lamma with minimal or no cost.

We will also support international disaster relief charity ShelterBox with a portion of the funds raised.

See you there!

Up for auction tonight, the theme cartoon of the

Lamma Dragons' Wild West fundraiser 2014!

Can it top last year's selling price of $6,000+ for a framed Harry Harrison masterpiece original?

Here's a SCMP video interview with Harry: http://www.scmp.com/video?movideo_m=805657

And his latest selfie from his Facebook page:.

Over $12,000 was fundraised for Harry's illustration last night in The Island Bar, by former Lamma Dragons captain Oliver, a dedicated Lamma memorabilia collector, it seems!

No wonder that Harry wrote to me yesterday when emailing this masterpiece to me that he can't afford his own illustrations anymore! :wink:

Successful recruiting sessions on Power Station Beach yesterday.
If I'd get these posters in advance then I could promote the recruiting more and the posters wouldn't look all crooked from my Mobile phone pics off the Democracy Fence. ;-)

Brad Tarr, Lamma 500 Event Director writes:

"The Lamma 500 is in its 10th year this year and it was a sell out 1 month before the start - 1st May 2016.

As well as local teams, we have USA, Singapore and China competing. 80 teams in total.

We also have the Tin Hau Festival on the 1st May (which finishes at 1pm) - so two Dragon Boat events on the same day is going to be the biggest event day Lamma has ever seen.

I'm inviting media to attend. - We have Localiiz and Lamma-zine... and this is great.

If you have any suggestions or you can help, please let me know." - Full media release & website.

10th Lamma 500 this Sunday, May 1st, '16, Power Station Beach! All details on their website at http://Lamma500.com.

No posters, banners or promotional stuff available yet, but the media release tells the story:
http://Lamma500.com/media160329.htm

I'll be alternating between Lamma Day dragonboat/sampan races in the morning outside the Sampan restaurant and the Lamma 500 international races at lunchtime to the late afternoon off Power Station beach.

I loved last year's T-shirts, wondering what they'll come up with this year:
