Sugar Land, TX. We are pleased to announce our 8th Annual Gulf Coast International Dragon Boat Regatta will be held on Saturday & Sunday, October 22 & 23, 2011 at the beautiful Brooks Lake at Fluor’s corporate campus in Sugar Land, Fort Bend County.
Dragon boat racing is the ultimate team-building activity for 25 team members. It does not matter if your team is strong or experienced – they just need to be together as they propel across the finish line.
Our event has come to be known as one of the largest multicultural and team-building activities in Fort Bend bringing in over 5,000 visitors who want to see the action both on and off the water. In addition to exciting dragon boat races, we will have diverse arts-and-crafts, Asian cuisine and cultural performances for all who attend. Admission and parking are free.
This year we are focusing our attention on our Breast Cancer Teams mainly the original Houston-based Pink Phurree Dragon Boat team and our newest breast cancer survivor team, All Hands Abreast as well as our visiting Louisiana pink team, Cajun Invasion.
Please come out and cheer these teams on as well as British Petroleum, ExMar Offshore, JP Morgan, MD Anderson Regional Core Center, Minute Maid, Schlumberger, Southern Union, United Airlines and so many more of the 45 paddling teams as they compete for the goal.
Teams and Sponsorship opportunities are still available so contact the Executive Director, Eve Ruhlman at (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any further questions or interests in joining us.
We look forward to your participation and attendance!
Free Admission to the public
