Wearing their signature tunics and carrying their trusty paddles

Paddle with the dragons

It’s an open house for an open boat.

On Saturday, May 5, all cancer survivors and their supporters are invited to join the Bravehearts Dragon Boat team for an informational open house at Dick Murphy Park on the Tyee Spit.

It will be easy to spot the open house – there will be the team tent set up with the Bravehearts members sporting their signature green jackets and shirts.

Come out to enjoy the refreshments and try your hand at paddling.

No experience is necessary as the team members will be happy to train you.

After a short lessons, join up with the experienced paddlers to take a tour of the Campbell River estuary in the team’s big dragonboat.

Lifejackets and paddles will be provided, but make sure to wear rubber-soled footwear and comfortable, fast-drying clothing.

The Bravehearts are always looking for new members and they’re hoping the open house experience will hook up more paddlers for the cause.

The open house runs from 12-3 p.m.
