The Prairie Dragons would also like to extend special thanks to all the Regina Dragon Boat Festival organizers and volunteers who work so hard to make this fantastic event happen every year!
Dragon PAC was formed in 1997 by a group of friends who wanted to get together and have some fun.
We were in the Mixed Rec Division for a number of years before moving into the Prairie Cup Challenge in 2011. Since being in the PCC we have won the title 4 times and have won the sprints twice. The group has changed quite a bit from the original 22, but we are still a bunch of misfits who still like to have a good time.
We are usually the last people in the beer tents and can usually be found wandering down Albert Street looking for another watering hole after the tent closes.
Dragon Our Cookies - this is our 17th year participating in the festival. The team is made up of past & present members of Girl Guides of Canada along with some friends. There are 2 women that have been on the team every year we have raced.

We enjoy fun, friendship & adventure on Wascana Lake each summer.

Several of our paddlers travel to out of province festivals with other teams, mainly the Winnipeg 10 man festival September 8th & 9th.
Amnesty International is the largest and most well-respected human rights organization on earth, with two all-volunteer groups in Regina. When not fighting for human rights in Canada and around the world, we have fun paddling as "Amnesty Rocks the Boat". We have been in the festival for seven years, but this year thirteen of our crew are rookies. Look for our black shirts with the yellow crests: shining light in the darkness.
