Robusters Off to San Francisco

posted Sep 8, 2012, 3:12 PM by Robusters Website
The Kootenay Robuster Dragon boat team will be travelling to San Francisco to take part in the 17th Annual Kaiser Permanente San Francisco International Dragon Boat Festival on Sept. 15th and 16th.  Races will be held near Treasure Island in San Francisco Bay.  In addition to training three times a week for more than four months, the team also prepared for the event by purchasing new carbon fibre paddles and adding skorts to the team uniform (thanks to the generosity of Rob LeRose of Home Goods Furniture).  The team also appreciates the support of our local community members, who purchase Robuster calendars to help fund the paddling program. The 2013 version is now available in local stores and from team members.
