We had another great season, with events running from January (Ice Dragon Boat in Ottawa and Fort Frances), to JUly 1st at the Island, through to September (GWN Challenge, Christie Lake, and Stratford). This event will celebrate each team and all our paddlers, coaches, and supporters. It's also just an excuse to get together one final time this season as a larger group and get to know each other better and share stories about the season past and what we would like to do next year.

The location is a condo party room located just a one minute walk from High Park subway station on Bloor in the west end.  See map and pictures at the bottom of this page.  We have rented a large room that seats up to 75 people.  We will hold a pot-luck dinner with contributions from paddlers to share their favourite dishes and desserts.  A small contribution fee will also help cover costs.  The event is hosted by members of the Guns n Roses team, led by co-captains Shalini and Babar. 

Please note that alcohol is NOT permitted at the venue.

Cost: $5 + Food donation to the pot-luck dinner (pay at event), OR, $10 without a food donation. 
          Pay in advance if at all possible using Interac e-mail transfer to "payments@rustydragons.ca".
      
Latest News (Nov. 13th):  We are just a few days away from teh event now, and have over 40 people attending with a good mix from various teams.  Please note that a couple of parking opens have been added below.  TTC is easiest and VERY close to the building.

FUN FACTS 
 - The Club wrote over $65,000 in cheques in 2018.  Can you guess where it went? 
 - We booked over 170 boat hours.  In all that time, guess how many hours were rain-outs? (hint: very few!)
 - Our teams raced in 79 individual heats (total distance of 30,400 meters - 30 KM).  Who had the fastest 100m, 200m, 500m, 1000m, 2000m times?
 - How many unique individual paddlers raced with us this past year in those races?  100?  150? 200? 250? 300? 350? 400?

>>> All of the answers and more will be revealed at the party!  As well, we will be making some announcements on some NEW Rusty events coming next year, as well as improved team support, and club fundraiser.
