Dragon Boat Race Weekend
June 23 - 25, 2023
UPDATE: We have a full boat
Tim Horton’s Dragon Boat Race
After a successful inaugural year, the Pepper Pod Paddlers are set to make waves again and we’d love if you’d join us!
23-25 June 2023
Mooney’s Bay Beach in Ottawa
We’re recruiting for three vital roles:
- Paddlers: Join the crew powering the boat to glory
- Set-Up Crew: Help set up and take down the Pepper Pod Pavilion
- Race Day Supporters: Slice watermelon and make sure everyone’s happy and hydrated
Priority for Paddler positions will be as follows:
- Last year’s paddlers
- Lifeshop™ Grads
- The Greater Pepper Pod Community
If you’re registering as a Paddler, make sure you’re available to practice on June 6, 8, 15 and 22, 2023 at the Rideau Canoe Club (804 Hog’s Back Rd., Ottawa). Practices will begin at 6:15pm sharp and will go for 60-90 minutes. Please be sure to arrive 15 minutes before the practice begins.
Pepper Pod Pavilion
The Pepper Pod Pavilion will be your home base for the race weekend. You’ll have a comfy place to rest, and share food, drinks and laughs. Our dedicated Race Day Supporters will watch over personal items like phones and purses while Paddlers are on the water.
A big shout-out to Heddle Shipyards for sponsoring the crew this year.
We’re very grateful for your support and hope to bring home the “Mettle!”
