Great way to meet new people.....

Postby Singa_Vera » Thu, 14 Jun 2007 10:27 am

Hi all!

Are you new in Singapore and building up a circle of friends?

Have you been here a while and are just tired of always meeting the same people?

Have your old friends left Singapore and you are looking for a new bunch of fun people?

Or are you simply interested in a fun leisure outdoor activity with a bunch of great people?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Then maybe joining the GERMAN DRAGONS may be interesting for you!

We are an international dragonboat team, united by an extraordinary sporting spirit, great friendships and shared activities. We have members of diverse nationalities and races! We are always on the lookout for new members. If you would like to try Dragon boating for the first time or if you are a experienced paddler, you are welcome to join our team. New members enjoy their first month of paddling without obligation. Come and try Dragon boating with the German Dragons - it is sure to be an experience you won't soon forget! After training we get together at the beach of Kallang for a beer. We also do regular BBQs and brunches at Paulaner (our main sponsor), and many more activities! \:D/

Check out our website at http://www.germandragons.sg/

All are welcome! Hurry up! The next raaces are coming up soon!

If you have question about or need more information regarding the German Dragons Singapore, please contact Anne at captain@GermanDragonsSingapore.org

Hope to see you soon at one of our trainings!

It sounds very interesting. I have just sent a message to the captain. Let's hope I will also become a team member.
With my kind regards

Hi Murat!

Anne has received your email! She will get back to you soon! It's best to join the first training on Saturdays. I will be in Germany the next 2 sessions, but I hope to see you as a member after my return! :D

Paddles Up!

Hi Flyings!

We always wear life vests on board. Usually the boat is stable and the only contact you have with water is that of the paddles splashing up. However, there is no guarantee.

We do have had 2 cases that the boat capsized or was so full of water that it sank (with us inside) during the races - the life vest helps, and our big experienced swimmers will tend to those that are afraid of the 'deep' water or are not experienced swimmers.

We will advise you to wear your life vest at all times, but we cannot take over responsibility.

How far along in your swimming lessons are you?

Cheers,
Vera

Hi, Vera

Thank you to talk at large about the safety issue. I just took two courses. :oops:
but i'd like to try. I had much fun in the water rafting in Bali. I think dragonboating must be exciting too. I'd like to have a try. :)
