Team up for dragon boating challenge

THE Midwest Traffic Management dragon boat team comes with experience, muscle and a whole lot of confidence.

They are one of many teams that have registered to compete in the second annual dragon boat challenge on Sunday, January 27 as part of the Slow Summer Festival.

Team leader Amanda Baker said her team had some great times during last year’s heats and were back again to do even better.

“It was a great day out ... we enjoyed it last year, it was great,” she said.

The group of men and women bettered their time by 20 seconds last year and have high hopes of better times this year.

“To be a better team, more together and not all over the place like last year,” Ms Baker said.

A minimum of 12 people are required to enter a team in the dragon boat challenge, with a maximum of 16 allowed.

Teams fundraise for their charity of choice at the event, with 65 per cent of the total prize pool of funds going to the wining team’s charity.
