Greetings, friends! The Dragon Divas have been growing our organization inside and out. One of the things we have grown is a fabulous new web site thanks to our friends at SportNgin. Please update any links or bookmarks to point to our new site at www.dragondivasmn.org. We will be removing this WordPress site in January 2015.
Your Minnesota Dragon Divas teams Hope and Courage raced well at the Lake Superior Dragon Boat Festival posting times of 2:16.07 and 2/20.01 for Team Hope, and 2:07.07 and 2:09.01 for Team Courage. Those times positioned our teams to compete in the finals. Team Courage placed fourth in the Women’s Division with a time of 2:10.07 and Team Hope placed fourth in the Bronze Division with a time of 2:22.03. Team Courage won the Cancer Survivors Challenge Division and Team Hope placed third. Congratulations to all!
HealthEast’s Inside Health Care with Jodi Ritacca will again feature the Dragon Divas beginning tomorrow, Wednesday, Aug 6, 2014 — on channel 19 in the north metro, it will air at 6:30 pm and 10:30 pm. If you don’t have cable TV, it will be on YouTube beginning next week.
Divas Ione and Sheila are interviewed in the 2nd half of the program, following Dr Frascone from Regions Emergency Medicine.
This weekend is the always lots of fun Dragon Festival at Lake Phalen in St. Paul, and your Minnesota Dragon Divas will be racing there on our “home” territory on Saturday. We are looking forward to a fun day of practice and racing. For those of you in the area that are able to come by and cheer us on, we will be practicing at 9:50 am and racing at about 1:36 pm and again at about 3:12 pm. Please stop by and say “hello!”
Thank you, Father Greg, for blessing our season.
