This is part of Active Parks program by Brisbane City Council. There will be 4-5 boats for newbies so the more paddlers the better!
http://www.brisbane.qld.gov.au/whats-on/type/Recreation-programs/active-parks/index.htm

In a free introductory session they show us through all of the basic techniques of dragon boat racing!

U don't need any experience and they provide everything, just bring a hat, sunscreen, towel and water.
U can attend 4-5 free introductory sessions and if really keen, then U can join them for proper training sessions.
I will update U with more details once we have more info.

    Possibly silly question: I believe we aren't intending to get wet so can we wear some track pants and a jacket since its so cold? Or is there a clothing code? Thanks in advance. :p

    Looks like we will be around 90 people (including other meetup groups: Happy Hikers, Random things in random places) so that will be great fun! Plz have a look at the latest update from Steve from BRD Recruitment:

    Both the weather and tide times are favourable. It should be a fantastic day. Parking - Subject to weather over the next couple of days, the BCC have approved parking beside the Dog Off Leash area. Parking attendents will be on duty to assist with parking. Coffee Van - Cappacinno Xpress will be on site from about 6.30am for those of you who need a heart starter in the morning. Coffee at normal prices. BBQ - Our club will host a BBQ. Request a gold coin donation to cover costs. Charity - The Salvation Army Red Shield appeal door knock occurs over this weekend. I believe they may be attending our event and requesting donations from participants. Looking forward to a great day with a great bunch of people

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
