EDBF Congress 31st July 2017 - Headlines

07 August 2017 - 
Below are the headlines from the EDBF Congress, held on the 31st of July 2017.

EDBF President/EDBF Treasurer

The new EDBF President is Claudio Schermi from Italy.
The new EDBF Treasurer is Maura Dezi from Italy.

Both will formerly take over their positions as of 1st January 2018. In the 5 month transition period Alan and Claudio will be working closely together to close out any outstanding issues and ensure that there is a smooth changeover.
On behalf of the EDBF Council may I take this opportunity to thank Alan van Caubergh and Nataliia Kravtsova for all their work for the Federation over the last number of years. Both have worked tirelessly for the EDBF in a purely voluntary basis.

EDBF ENC 2017

13th EDBF European Nations Championships will be held in Brandenberg an der Havel, Germany between 23rd - 26th August 2016. Bulletin no. 1 will be issued before Christmas 2017.

EDBF Convention

The Congress agreed that they would like to hold an EDBF Convention in Belgrade, Serbia over the weekend of 24th - 26th November 2017. Friday, 24th November will be reserved for the Executive Committee Meeting with the Convention formally starting on Saturday morning. The main aim of the Convention is for us all to discuss and analyse our sport. Further details on the event will be issued in the coming weeks, but in the meantime if there are any items you would like included on the agenda, please let us know.

    Attention, Dragon Boat ladies in Europe! Today we present our women's team Senior B / Senior C. These ladies started in Kunming at the World Championships in the Senior-A-Class and presented themselves there excellently. They have won the silver medal three times and have shown that even at a mature age, you can still achieve great achievements. This requires a good team with a special atmosphere. This is what our ladies have and the DDV is very proud of it. They are highly motivated and challenge all other European nations to the ENC in 2018. So what about your women's teams, whether Senior A, B or C. Who's coming to Brandenburg in August 2018?
