August 8, 2012

The 2012 dragon boat season is in full swing. UMUC’s dragon boat team, the Virtual Dragons, is gearing up to compete at the National Harbor Dragon Boat Regatta on Saturday, August 25. The regatta is a free event that is open to the public and celebrates Asian cultures, diversity, ethnicity, roots and history. 

The team is looking for paddlers and volunteers to work at this family-oriented, community event. To join the team, racers must be at least age 12 or older. Students, staff, faculty and alumni are invited to join. Practices have already begun, so visit the team page for more information or to sign up.  

The team will also be competing in the Philadelphia Dragon Boat Festival on Saturday, October 6.
