On Friday, March 25th, the Kootenay Robusters paddled their dragon boat into the waters of Christina Lake – the earliest launch so far in the 15-season history of the team.  With only ten paddlers aboard, progress was a little slower than usual, but the group was able to make their way from Schulli’s resort, where the boat is stored over the winter, to Colville bay, where the Robusters are based for the summer. 

Although the Robusters were originally formed to support breast cancer survivors on their journey back to good health, all women are welcome to join.  Without the associate paddlers, there wouldn’t be enough survivors to form a team.  To learn more, and to find contact information, visit the website The team is looking forward to the start of regular practices on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings and would love to welcome new recruits.
