Become A Member of the Tacoma Dragon Boat Association!

By becoming a member of the evolving Tacoma Dragon Boat Association (TDBA) you can participate
in our ongoing practices, races, special events and outings, or just getting together for fun, excitement and adventures. 

Trips, events and races around the Pacific Northwest, up and down the West Coast or around the world. 
It's totally up to you. Dragon Boat racing is the fastest growing team sport in the world, with over 50 million paddlers and growing. While there is plenty
to do, from helping to prepare the boats, to getting the crews safely in and out of the boats, to actually paddling in a race, or helping out at the start
and finish lines.  Racing is where the paddles really hit the water. You'll have the opportunity to go to 8 - 10 races annually, or just a couple, or
none at all. Like we said it's entirely your choice.

A typical annual race schedule might include the huge ALCAN Festival in Vancover, B.C.; the International
Festival in San Franciso, CA; the Cornucopia Days in Kent, WA: The Victoria, B.C. Festival; a couple of 6-8
mile distance races, and also wherever the qualifiers are held for the U.S. Nationals or the Club Crew World Championships.
Three Tacoma Dragon Boat members (Harold Daniels, Mike Gehrke, and Curt Ness) represented USA
at the Club Crew World Championships - Ravenna Italy, September 1-7, 2014.
