European Dragon Boat Federation February 3 2017 06:22pm ECCC 2017 - PLEASE NOTE
Please be advised that the EDBF online registration system for the ECCC 2017 is not currently working. Slawek has been improving the system to allow the Governing Federations to issue passwords to their club crews in order that you can validate their entries. Please be patient as our IT expert does this work for us on a voluntary basis which we are greatly appreciative of. It is expected that the system will be fully operational by 15th February 2017. This will allow two weeks for everyone to upload their entries before the first deadline date.
I would be most grateful if you would ensure that your club crews know about this issue.
European Dragon Boat Federation January 26 2017 05:05pm Happy Chinese New Year!
The 28th January 2017 sees the start of the lunar new year which for the Chinese community means a two week period of festivities ending on 2nd February 2017. This year it is the year of the Rooster.
For people born in a rooster year - 1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005 - it is set to be an unlucky time because tradition denotes that the year of your birth makes for an unlucky 12 months.
Roosters are the tenth sign in the zodiac and are seen as confident, honest and hardworking. They also enjoy being around people but can be seen as attention seekers.
