We are trying to secure a permanent spot on False Creek, if not we are in jeopardy of losing a home and the Rio Tinto Alcan Festival, which is the second largest Race in the World...

If you are interested in helping out and in the Lower Mainland today and tomorrow drop by the Open Houses...

Welcome to the 21st Annual Rio Tinto Alcan

Visit Open House: Help us secure a permanent home on False Creek

You can help the Dragon Boat Festival stay at False Creek! Please plan to drop by one of two upcoming Open Houses and leave a comment:

Sunday, Jan 25, 2009
11:30 am - 4 pm
Central Branch Library, 350 West Georgia

Monday, Jan 26, 2009
4 - 8 pm
Roundhouse Community Centre, 181 Roundhouse Mews

The north side of False Creek is the last piece of land that is suitable for our activities in the City of Vancouver . If this land is developed without a permanent home for dragon boating as part of the plan, Vancouver will lose a first class festival, a popular paddling community organization, a tourist event and a very important cultural icon. We'd like a boat house on False Creek.

Please drop in and write your comments. Tell your team. It's not complicated - we just want a place to paddle and hold our Festival.

Thanks - and paddles up!

Time will tell but it was a good turnout...keeping everything crossed but not the paddles, it makes for poor movement on the water :lol:

When they capsize here people are more worried about bacterial infections and toxic poisons than drowning. Dragon Boat Festival is going to be a four day weekend for us this year.
