ENTRY FOR STANLEY DRAGON BOAT RACES 2003
The Annual Dragon Boat Race is going to be held at Stanley Main Beach on 4 June 2003 (Wednesday). Application to enter the race is now open.
As you might notice the ample entries last year, you are advised to apply early to assure a place. Places are limited and application will be accepted on a first-come-first served basis.
Please complete the entry form [ R ] and return it with a crossed cheque HK$7,000 (Among the entry package, $1000 is for entry fee, $6000 practice fee).which should be made payable to the ”Stanley Residents Association Limited” and sent by registered mail to the Association before April 15. Please choose and specify carefully the most convenient time of practice, so that 10 practice sessions for each team can be worked out.
Besides, to meet the demand of early training schedules, we are going to open training from January to mid April. Please refer to Form E for details.
To improve the event further, we have modified the rules in 2002 as follows:
1. Men's Teams of both Chinese and Expat are further divided into 2 classes as A & B. Each class has its own Cup & Plate events. But only those in class A will be able to advance to the Overall combined Final . (Ladies Team only have one class to enter )
2. Class A is the Elite grade and is limited to only 20 teams each for both Chinese & Expat Categories. All the Class A teams, as well as the fastest 3 Cup finalists of Class B in previous year, can enter Class A this year directly.Classification is negotiable. Newcomer's option will depend on actual team profile.
3. The crew on each boat is limited to 20, including 18 rowers, one steersman and a drummer. And the average weight of the crew must not exceed 200 pounds. Detailed regulations and arrangements of the Race will be sent out later and will also be printed on the Race Programme and our web site.
Dragonboating is now regarded as one of the fastest growing water sport in the world. It is good for physical health and the mind and is a good means of building up team spirit. It is obviously a precious coporate social and sporting activity for your company and staff should be encouraged to take part. The Association will surely respond to your participation by putting in relevant resources.
Any kinds of support to sponsor the printing of the programme brochure(Deadline for advertisement scripts is also on April 15) and sponsor building new boats are welcome..
On behalf of the local residents, we appreciate your active participation in our traditional festival. Enclosed please find the entry form, practise option sheets and information for sponsorship.
Yours very truly,
Alson, Wong Kam-chuen (Mr)
