This new event on the Rusty Dragons menu is thanks to Jessica Shotwell, who was a team mate of several Rusty Dragons who attended the annual Space Coast Florida training camp in April 2016. As was the case for Rusty Dragons attending past races in Denver, Phoenix, Las Vegas, and Puerto Rico, these were all spawned by meeting great people from across North America at Jim Farintosh's training Camp in Florida.

We were especially happy that JoAnn Moore joined us from Sisters in Sync, Florida. 20% of our team were breast cancer survivors JoAnn and Estelle), who with Tim as steer participated in the Flower ceremony with three boats that Estelle arranged for the benefit of all. In fact, we are bring a FULL breast cancer survivor team this year.
There are TWO Teams for you to choose from:
1) Motley Crew & Friends, a mixed team returning for their 2nd year.
2) Pink Crusaders & Friends, a breast cancer survivor team going for the first time.
Our objective is go somewhere new, meet new people, and have fun doing what we love - racing!
NOTE: Due to dam work being done by the city on Lake Peachtree (the lake level will be lowered), the event is moving to nearby Lake McIntosh where the event has also been previously held. We lose the nice Drake Field but gain much better water for racing!
