The EDBF Board is preparing a Special Congress meeting for 10 and 11 November to discuss ways to further stimulate dragon boat racing in Europe. This will also allow country reps to get a feel for the host city, Hamburg, and the facilities on offer. Plus watch for a special workshop on Sunday. More details will be sent to country representatives as the Board finalizes the program. If you are a paddler and not a country representative, please contact your national dragon boat federation to make sure your ideas and input is heard.
