Organizers of the Coquitlam Crunch Challenge, the Nothin’ Dragon Masters dragon boat team have taken the helm for a second year and are holding the next planning meeting in June. Anyone wishing to help out with this year’s event is asked to turn out on Monday, June 12th at the Coquitlam Library at 7 pm in the City Centre Boardroom (upstairs).

“We are seeking people who can help in the planning stage as well as on the day of the event,” said Brian Kenny, president of the Nothin’ Dragon Masters. “We are heavy into our planning phase, so we are looking for people who can assist with helping the event grow.”

If you can assist with community and corporate outreach; registration enhancement; or marketing and promotions we’d love to hear from you.  Event day volunteer roles include help with road crossings, registration, race guidance,

“We also encourage any diversity groups from the Tri-Cities to attend or contact us as soon as possible to learn how they can participate in the event to bring more awareness to their cause, said Crunch Challenge co-chair Brian Kenny. “We intend to highlight these groups as our thrust for 2017.”

Feel free to also RSVP if you can make it or, can’t make it but want to assist. Email:
