Team Building at the 12th Annual Central Florida Dragon Boat Festival
Use the Central Florida Dragon Boat Festival April 4 & 5, 2014 in Tavares, Florida to build team management and leadership skills or just have fun with a group of friends.
Tavares, FL, USA—Leadership building and teamwork are the foci of 22 member teams on Lake Dora in the Rotary Club of Lake County Golden Triangle’s 2014 Central Florida Dragon Boat Festival. Teams from all over the southeast command 30-foot long boats decorated with dragonheads to the beat of a drummer.
Teams consist of 20 paddlers, a drummer, and a steersperson for 22 mates per boat. Teams must include a minimum of eight female paddlers. Pink teams are breast cancer survivors and senior teams are groups over 55 years of age.
Your business leadership team will challenge the overall 2013 champion of division, the Tampa Bay Dragon Boat Club “Blade Runners” (2:26.61), second place overall champion, the Miami Dragon Slayers (2:30.58), and third place overall champions, the TECO Anou Black team from Tampa, FL (2:32.11).
Teams gather the night of April 4, 2014 for the pre-race Awakening of the Dragon Ceremony and a performance by the Orlando Taiko Drummers followed by spectacular fireworks over Lake Dora. Dinner tickets are $10 online, while supplies last.
The challenging competition begins at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, April 5, 2014 at Wooton Park in Tavares, FL. The schedule for the day is filled with all types of entertainment including, the Dragon/Line Dance, Martial Arts demonstrations, Chinese acrobats, the Taiko Drummers, and other live entertainment. Lunchtime will feature the annual Lucy Ho egg roll eating contest ($100 prize) with the closing ceremonies occurring at 5:15 p.m. Families will find a lot of action and sun filled sights throughout the park and lake.
