Message from DBC President Scott Murray

Scott Murray provided a summary of his President's Report from the 2021 Dragon Boat Canada Annual General Meeting. He discusses the challenges that DBC has had with Covid-19, and how paddlers can help support their organization.
See video here.

Most of their difficulties come from a drop in membership, so we can all help support them by becoming a DBC member. They do a great deal for all paddlers in Canada, and it's only $25+GST for an annual membership.
