Try Dragon Boating @ Forest Lake

The Lakes District Dragon Boat association is offering a 'come and try day' at Forest Lake.  Come and learn how to dragon boat and we will put a meetup team in a boat for a race across the lake.

This is open to anyone 16+ with any fitness level. Or just come along to watch (and possibly a laugh).

Meet me at the jetty (near the carpark off The Esplanade near the corner of Forest Lake Boulevarde). We may put a few dollars in for a BBQ afterwards. A coffee cart will be available near the jetty.

Join in on the fun and 'LIKE' our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/Over35ers !!!

    I was there today, went for a paddle. Had no idea who was who. Stayed on the jetty for awhile after my paddle & could not see who was with The Lakes District Dragon boat group (apart from their shirts) & who was with Over 35's.....ended up just leaving.

      That's such a shame Fiona. Most of the others standing around on the jetty between paddles would have been with our group and would have happily introduced you if you had asked if they were with meetup. Hope to see you at another event soon.
