Preparations for our 10th Anniversary Dragon Boat Challenge on SATURDAY 7TH JULY at Pugneys Country Park, Wakefield, are now well in hand. To date, 37 teams are entered, and invitations have gone out to them to attend our Pre-Event Reception on 14th June at Heath Cottage Hotel, Dewsbury. This Reception is particularly useful for new teams. Further information, if required, can be found on our dedicated website www.rotarydragonboatchallenge.org

If you are planning a visit to Pugneys on 7th July to experience the fantastic atmosphere created by Dragon Boat Racing, we recommend you take advantage of the FREE PARKING provided and marshaled by Rotarians, which is situated in a field 300 yards up Asdale Road, and well signposted from the roundabout adjacent to the entrance to Pugneys. Racing will take place throughout the day, commencing at around 10.00am and the Prize Giving will conclude the event at approx 5.00pm.

Last year, the teams participating raised in excess of £47.800.00 which was distributed to around 20 different Charities of the team’s choice. This year’s teams are aiming to beat that figure.

Huddersfield Rotary Club looks forward to seeing you there.
