The Art of Paddling
The Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival took place at Mooney's Bay on June 17-19 and, for the 11th year in a row, the Canada Council Art Bank entered the competition. The team placed 4th in the Fendock 500M Open Women with a time of 2:30:15 and 5th in the 200M race with a time of 0:59:18. Again this year, the team was in the top 10 for fundraising, raising $8,457 for 7 local charities!
Congratulations to the team and a special word of thanks to Amy Jenkins, the team captain, for organizing many early morning practices!
Wishing the team all the best for the Carleton Place Dragon Boat Festival in September!!
