Congratulations to all clubs and paddlers who competed at this year’s State Championships.
Thank you to the multitude of people who volunteer their time throughout the year both at regattas and in preparation for regattas. This includes all of those who participate with finishing tower timing, marshalling, race starts, rescue boat, boat handling and other tasks, as well as coaches, team managers, people who have towed boats to the regattas, set up toggles, lifted boats onto trailers, ran the sausage sizzles, arranged raffle prizes, put up and took down tents, collected fees, paid fees, worked on club committees, and everyone else who has participated in their various ways to contribute to the DBWA regattas and our sport! If anyone has been missed, it is not intentional — THANK YOU EVERYONE!
