Anyone looking for a 35+ male paddler? Was thinking about signing up last minute if someone had a need!

Eileesh Buckley possible that south australian fire power might need someone, one of their guys was injured last night. talk to them at the opening ceremony to check, they may already have someone sorted, but it's worth talking to them. 2 years ago

Athletes, you may or may not have received your athlete confirmation letter tonight. As one of the Senior Games Managers and an athlete in the games I received one that was not intended for me (another athlete’s name). Something has happened in the registration software program and the staff here is working through the problem as we speak. Please stand by and they will post a notification once a resolution is found. We apologize for the confusion.

Debra, all athletes must be full time sworn fire or police officers by Federation rules.

We are Police Dragon Boat Club from Hong Kong Police Force. I would like to invite some female paddlers to jointly participate in the female (18+) dragon boat race in the coming WPFG 2015. Please kindly advise if you have interest. Many Thanks. my email address is hellochanmanfor@yahoo.com.hk

How about volunteer fire and rescue personnel are they allowed to participate?

Stephanie, based on the WPFG Dragon Boat rules, drummers must be registered competitors, meaning they must be sworn law enforcement or fire/rescue. Sweeps, however, do not need to be sworn personnel.
