Outing – Nanaimo Dragon Boat Festival – RSVP Required

July 13

The Nanaimo Dragon Boat Festival is a full day of festivities from 8:30AM – 4:30PM, and the club has been asked to be the official photographers for the festival.  This is our club’s opportunity to show our support for other Nanaimo clubs and the community in general. 

We are looking for at least 8 people to be the core photographers who will have inside access to the festivities and additional people do be on site to do some background shots of the crowds and additional activities. 

The groups will be broken down to 2.5 hour shifts as follows: 

  • 8:00 – 10:30 
  • 10:30 – 1:00 
  • 1:00 – 3:30 
  • 3:30 – 5:00 

These shifts are to ensure that we get adequate coverage for the complete day, you are more than welcome to stay longer the more photographs the festival organiser have to work with the better. 

Our images will be shared with the festival organisers for their use but the club and individual photographers will be given full credit. 

The festival program is as follows: 

8:15AM – Tiller/stern meeting at the top of the crab/fishing dock ramp

8:30AM – Cedar Blessing by Snuneymuxw 1st Elder Lolly Good 

9:00AM – Racing starts 

11:30AM – Breast Cancer Survivor Challenge – Paddler Arch from crab/fish dock to the lagoon beach 

12:00PM – Carnation Ceremony at lagoon beach  

3:30PM – Guts & Glory 1000 meter race 

4:30PM – End of racing 

Please contact Rooney via the on-line RSVP form if you are interested in attending. 

There will be a meeting to discuss the plan on June 24th at Serious Coffee on Jinglepot Rd at 4:30PM.
