The United States Dragon Boat Federation invites The USDBF Board invites you to consider this invitation to bid as host organizer for the USDBF Club Crew National Championships in 2015. The USDBF Board requests members of the regional organizations (ADBA, PDBA, ERDBA and SRDBA) to distribute this information and consider well run festivals in their regions and encourage them to apply to be the site for Club Crew Nationals.
Although we will consider others, strongly preferred dates would be in July or August, 2015.
We are attaching the RFP. Please submit any questions to Ginny Perrin, President of USDBF at CCNC@usdbf.org by January 3, 2014. We will have a Q and A for all interested parties on January 7, 2014 at 9 PM EST via conference call. All questions submitted will be answered during the conference call.
The USDBF Board encourages festival organizers to consider this opportunity. The USDBF CCNCs is growing rapidly and soon will be ready to become a stand alone event. The USDBF Board believes that in order for the CCNCs to be financially successful, the event currently needs to be run in conjunction with an existing successful festival. We are considering partnering with an organizer for the next two CCNCs in 2015 and in 2017 and would like those who feel they have strong race sites in two different regions that may be viable options for 2015 and then 2017, to consider writing a proposal for both. You do not have to include two sites in your proposal to be considered for 2015, but we are considering building a partnership with an organizer who has strong events in different regions.
We are fully supporting the development of our club crews and believe that an ongoing relationship with a vendor has potential to further strengthen the CCNC experience for our paddlers. The opportunity to win a berth at the IDBF World Club Crew Championship to be held in Australia in 2016 is a great goal for our clubs. Festivals are asked to submit a letter of support from their regional Board in order to apply for this bid.
