Information Bulletin 4 for the 2012 IDBF Club Crew World Championships

13 June 2012 - 
12 June 2012

Dear Colleagues,

Please find attached Info Bulletin No. 4 (Technical) for the CCWC in Hong Kong, plus PDFs for the Regatta Time-Table (5 days); a Summary of the Competition Classes and their format, together with the appropriate Medals Presentations and the final list of Crews Entries by Competition Class. PLEASE READ ALL THE DOCUMENTS FULLY AND CAREFULLY. The Time-table is still subject to minor alteration and will be confirmed in the Daily Race Programme

Please check the entries list to ensure that you are shown for the competitions you have been sanctioned for. Just check the columns on the right of each page as the ´competitions entered section´ has not necessarily been updated. The column entries are correct, as at the 8 June 2012. Those crews shown in Red have yet to visit the IDBF Data Base !

Any queries on entries, then please come back to me but note that any agreed changes will appear in the Daily Race Programme, which I hope to send to you a week before the first Racing Day of the Champs.

Any changes made from now will also have to be notified to the Team Managers meeting at 1400 hours on Tuesday 3 July 2012. At that time any withdrawals from any of the competitions must also be made.

The IDBF Data Base is open to you until 30 June 12 for you to enter Names etc on to your Team List and to add any competitor photographs or complete and download Declarations and Crew Lists, as appropriate.

Changes to entries or Late Entries can no longer be made on the Data Base but can be submitted to ccwcentry[at]idbf.org, for consideration by the IDBF Competition & Technical Commission Chairman, Mike Thomas and myself.

This CCWC will be the largest World Champs held so far. The time- table is very tight in places with 5 minute intervals between races and given the restricted marshalling area facilities and the water conditions that can arise in Victoria Harbour, it is essential that everyone works together, crews and officials, to make it a success, particularly when it comes to crews marshalling and embarking before their races.

For those of your Club Members who are not in Hong Kong, we are planning to show the whole CCWC live by web cast, via Live Stream who are based in the USA. You should go to www.idbfdragonboat.tv, www.idbf.org or www.livestream.com to gain access to the live coverage during the racing hours shown in the Regatta Time Table.

Let us all make sure that we make the event worthy of the title ´World Championship´ and show the world´s media Dragon Boating at its best !

With best wishes for a successful event for your Club and Crews,

Mike Haslam
IDBF Executive President

    European Dragon Boat Federation added 5 new photos.
    At the EDBF Convention in Belgrade we decided to run a competition to design a new logo for the EDBF. We would be most grateful if you would share this message with your dragon boat family as we may have some budding designers out there. Alternatively go to our Facebook page "European Dragon Boat Association" and share our message. All logos are to be submitted to secretary@edbf.org by 31/12/17.

      European Dragon Boat Federation Times keep changing and innovation is a regular feaure of our mission. We love the old EDBF logo. It was designed by our friend Fabio Masi in 1990. Today we should have new ideas, all togheter with the Dragon Boat Community of Europe, starting from a new Logo to represent our wish to achieve progress and promote innovation for a rejuvenation of our sport and for a susteinable long term growth.

    Competition Time! Your chance to win a personalised carbon paddle. The EDBF logo is now 27 years old and is in need for an update. We are therefore asking you the paddler to come up with a new design that will show that our traditional sport is changing into the modern era along with the world of sport itself. Please read the briefing document carefully which can be found here. http://www.edbf.org/news.php?item=238. All logos are to be submitted to secretary@edbf.org by 31/12/17. Get those creative thinking juices flowing!

    European Dragon Boat Federation shared Federazione Italiana Dragon Boat's post.
    CHRISTMAS CUP - ROME EUR 2017, 17th December. Classic race at the end of the year, this time takes on a different value than usual, because we would like to emphasize how the sport, and in particular the discipline of the Dragon Boat, is proposed as a sample of integration between genders and respect for women. There is no team sport like ours, 22 people in a boat are equivalent to two football teams, but the important element is that men and women compete together in the same crew in the specialties of the Mixed and the Open. Today, violence against women and gender discrimination, unfortunately, is in front of everyone... like other social problems such as "stalking" and cyber bullying. I am convinced that sport can play an important role in this issue, as in many others, and that is why the Italian Dragon Boat Federation, which I am honored to be president, launches this appeal with the collaboration of associations that have always take up this serious phenomenon and invite everyone to participate in the event that will be held at the EUR lake in Rome on Sunday 17 December The races will start at 9.00 am in the lake at the Laghetto facing the Piscina delle Rose At the end of the event, around 1.00 pm, there will be the awards and commemorative ceremonies. Antonio De Lucia President Federazione Italiana Dragon Boat
