Our corporate Dragon Boat Race – Saturday 13th May 2017, 9.30am to 3pm, @ Fairland’s Valley Lakes, Six Hills Way, Stevenage, Herts, SG2 0BL
We have joined forces with Challenge Central to run our Dragon Boat Race. It is the ultimate team building experience and would also be a great way to raise you company’s profile. It is also a lot of fun and there are medals to be won, with teams/companies competing against each other and absolutely no experience is required!
At the start of the day (9.30am) there will be a draw to decide the order of races. Shortly after, there will be a safety briefing and a quick lesson on the best way to row and work as a team. Racing will commence after that with a break in the early afternoon for lunch. There is a café and a barbeque available for food and drink to be purchased. Races involve teams paddling furiously to the beat of their drummer, whilst a professional helmsman makes sure each boat steers true. At first teams complete the 150m course in a series of heats, with the fastest teams progressing to the knock-out rounds of the competition. At the end of the competition (2.30pm) there is an award ceremony.
Each boat costs £250 and can accommodate up to 10 rowers and 1 drummer (2 people on standby recommended). Boats need to be secured in advance via the Challenge Central website: www.challengecentral.co.uk/dragon-boat-racing. Team members then collect sponsorship for The Living Room Hertfordshire, by setting up their own sponsorship page through our Virgin Money Giving page, or using our paper sponsorship form: the-living-room-herts-sponsorship-form-doc
