This project is raising funds to facilitate the development of Mount Warning Dragon Boat Club Inc. over the next three years including providing financial assistance to athletes participating in high performance Dragon Boat racing.
The club have qualified to participate in the International Dragon Boat Federation's (IDBF) World Club Crew Championships in Ravenna, Italy in September 2014 by being the 2014 Australian National Champions in the Grand Masters Women's 10s team over 200m and 500m and 2014 Australian National Champions in the Grand Masters Mixed 10s team over 500m and are set to compete against the best clubs from around the world in Italy.
The club have already participated in the same event held in 2011 in Hong Kong as part of a joint team made up of members from Mount Warning and Broadwater Dragon Boat Clubs where they won gold medals in their representative categories. In Italy, next September, Mount Warning will be participating as a club in their own right which will be an enormous achievement for both the club and the local community. The majority of the participants in this event are over 50 years of age and success in Italy will help to inspire people of all ages to get involved in the sport and help to raise awareness of the club within the community and nationally. On return from Italy the club hopes to leverage its success to grow the membership from the local community with the aim of building a really successful sporting club over the coming years.
