We are ready. Our Coaches have prepared us well. Many hours have been spent training, at our home gym - Movati, in Welland at the International Flat Water Center's paddling tanks, with personal trainers, in our homes and in our minds. We are physically and mentally prepared.
There are many to thank...
Of course we must thank Jim and all the staff at Movati Athletic! Thank you for your incredible generosity and sponsorship for many years. Thank you for Rosa and Chantel! We wish you were coming with us! And thank you to the members who know who we are, know our goals and wish us well when they see us.
Thank you to the Fanshawe Yacht Club, our summer home. We look forward to getting back out there for another season. Your continued support of the dragon boat community is greatly appreciated.
Thank you to the Pendragons! We are all family, thank you for pushing us to be our best.
Thank you to Maria Mountain of Revolution Sport Conditioning for providing us with an excellent workout and conditioning to prepare for World competition. What an amazing gift that we have taken full advantage of!
Thank you to Diana and the staff at the Welland International Flatwater Center! You have an amazing, world class, facility and we thoroughly enjoy using it! It is second to none!
We would be going nowhere if it wasn't for Leigh Hamacher of Travel by Design. Somehow you get us pointed in the right direction....no easy task! Thank you for all the care you have taken in making our travel arrangements!
Sam, our favourite bus driver!! You always go above and beyond for us! We look forward to you joining us in Adelaide on the 29th.
Carl Jensen, thank you for your generous offer to drive the men and Bekka and Newton to Toronto on the 27th!
And of course, thank you to our families and friends who have supported us every step of the way! We would not be the people we are today without you. You cared for us in our darkest times and now you cheer for our victories! We hear you on the shoreline of every festival, your excitement is infectious and you push us to never give up!
Saturday, March 19th at 2:00pm we will board the bus and depart from the Wonderland Rd. South location of Movati Athletic to start our long (very long) journey to Australia. We welcome you to come and see us off!
The count down is on!
