Chautauqua Lake Dragon Boat Race Planning Committee
The second annual Chautauqua Lake Dragon Boat Race has been scheduled for August 12, 2017 at Lucille Ball Memorial Park in Celoron, NY. This year’s event will once again benefit the Chautauqua Lake Association.
The inaugural event in 2016 was an overwhelming success with over 20 boats comprised of teams from local sponsors, community groups and several experienced clubs. Over 1,000 people gathered in the park for the race participants, as friends and family shared in a fun-filled afternoon of friendly competition.
The CHQ Dragon Boat Race continues to be the only event of its kind held in the surrounding area. Registration is now open for teams and individuals with a discounted rate available for those who registered before June 15th.
The event will provide all the necessary equipment needed to participate including the boat, paddles and lifejackets. Individuals do not require prior experience, as a steersperson is provided along with training before the scheduled race day. Participants simply need the desire to enjoy a friendly, team building athletic competition!
