What a fantastic weekend in Montreal! I was there with my Dragonboat Team Knot-A-Breast and although it was unbearably hot on Saturday, the weather overall was great. The team did us proud in the races. They came 2nd in the breast cancer challenge and came away with a cup and medals. They held their own in the rest of their races, looked very polished in their strokes and their strength is awesome.
I didn’t race but I helped at the fundraising table, selling T-shirts, bags (we sold out!) pins, pens, etc. PLUS beautiful fused glass jewelry that one of our team mates makes. We made some money to help keep the team going. So all in all it was a successful dragonboat festival.
The Just For Laughs event was on all weekend on St.Catharine’s Street and attracted thousands of people. KISS was in the Heavy Metal Festival at Parc Jean Drapeau and we could hear the crowds cheering when we left the dragonboat event on Sunday. Montreal certainly knows how to entertain people.
Now it’s back to work…..
