Welcome to my Dragon Boat page
This year is in Memory of my Dad, Herschel M. Talbert, who passed away Dec. 5, 2015. Also Ted who passed away March 2, 2016. In that 2 year span I have know others that have been taken due to cancer. Peace to their families and friends.
Last year was my first go at a Dragon Boat race. I had a blast! This year I will be serving as an alternate for the team. Hopefully I will do photos of the Event, but if called up, I will row as best as I can.
Last year had two heat races and hopefull to be in one of the three final categories. In the first race we were up against two boats and we beat them both by over a boat length. 20 people per boat. The next two races we had to go down to 16 people because the wind became so strong. We won the second heat race by 27/100ths of a second. The next race was about 20 minutes later, it was the Finals and we were in! There was the Petite, Minor and Major. Each had three boats in their race and were based off the accumilated times of the first two races. It was a hard foughgt race and we seemed to cross the finish line at the same time; we figured that we had lost. We went back to the tents and waited for the other finals to finish (we were in the Petite race). Right before the banquet they showed the finish times for the three finals and we had won by 10/100ths of a second. We were undefeated!!! So proud of our team, so thankful for our time with Ted. We all received 1st place medals that we wore aound our necks.
Thank you all that donated last year; I raised $925.00.
