dragon-boats-Image-2The Mt Warning Dragon Boat Club  has recently held two very successful ‘come and try’ mornings on the Brunswick River.

The Mt Warning club would like to encourage anyone who has not had the opportunity, to come and get the adrenalin rush.

The sessions will give the participants onshore instruction before loading the boats ready to experience the joy of just paddling, coupled with the full gamut of competitive racing tactics.

It’s a lot of fun – everyone is welcome to join in.

The next two days will be  on Sunday November 3 and Sunday December 1.

 If you are interested please arrive at Ferry Reserve Caravan Park boat ramp at 10am for a 10.30am start.

For more information phone 0427 013 326.
