Boys,

The Dragon Boat season is here and the DBS Old Boys team needs you!!

Remember the times gone by when we went beyond our limits at the Inter-School events, only to be the best of the best? (does anyone recall a small wannabe school called LSC?)  

Now we have the chance recreate history as very proud alumni of our great school!

Building on our very solid foundation from previous years, we are entering 4 high profile races this season.  We are going to put DBS Dragon Boat on the map!!  

“No guts, no glory”  

We shall paddle with brains and brawn.  We will use our heads and muscles.  We will be challenged mentally and physically.

There will be some hard work, a lot of fun and immense satisfaction, and we shall triumph as one team!

Logistics

·         Kick-off meeting at 3:00pm to 4:30pm on 11th Feb 2012 (Saturday) at the Day Boys Dining Room at DBS. 

·         All training sessions to be held at Stanley beach on Saturdays, 3-5pm

·         First training at Stanley on 25th Feb 2012 (Saturday), 3-5pm.

·         Membership fees:  HK$800. 

This accounts for the increased number of races and training sessions in 2012.  (I understand it also comes with a really funky racing vest.  Definitely money worth spending!!)

Races we shall compete in:

·         Deep Water Bay (20th May)

·         Stanley Warm Up (26th May)

·         Stanley International (23rd Jun)

·         Stanley Short Course (15th July)

Any questions, please feel free to contact us.  We look forward to seeing you all at the kick-off meeting.   Remember, DBS Old Boys will only succeed with you and because of you.  This is your calling!!

Your humble co-captains
