Annual Dragon Boat Race 2017 - update on event
June Knighton (22nd September 2017)    

Another successful Dragon boat race for 2017. A huge thank you to everyone I persuaded/tricked/bullied and blackmailed into taking part, far to many to mention but you all know who you are. I feel lucky to know such lovely people who are game for a laugh enough to take part. Also to thoes who stepped in at the last minite. Thanks to the 2 girls from Barclays Bank. Sam Wilson and Lucy for organising the "Match it" for us, to Far-Out Faces: Face Painting for stepping in at the last minute to do the face painting at no cost to us and of course Gav Wooding at the Hopmaster General - stop4beer Micropub and Bottleshop for sponsoring one boat and the Rotary Club of Rushden for sponsoring the second boat. Also to a lady called Michelle who made about a thousand yummy cakes. Not sure how much we raised yet but I think if there was a prize for the most sponsors it would go to Adam Mackay for getting in excess of £300 sponsor money.
