9th Annual Dragon Boat Regatta ~ At Old Trace Park

It was an overcast, chilly day at the Ross Barnett Reservoir, but the 9th Annual Dragon Boat Regatta was a blast. The Madison County Chamber of Commerce planned the regatta, with help from these sponsors

Dragon Boat Racing at the Rez by Pat Starnes

Dragon boat racing dates back thousands of years and is quickly becoming an international team water sport. Twenty paddlers, a drummer, and a steerer race against competing boats. A fraction of a second can make the difference between first and second place.

The Front Gate Realty team entered the race along with nearly 50 other teams.  First, second, and third place winners were 1) Kudzu Crossfit, 2) Reservoir Fire Department, and 3) Crossfit Fossil Fuel.

Everyone had a great time. Kids enjoyed the bouncy houses, face painting, and playground. The adults enjoyed socializing, good food, and friendly competition.
