NOTE: After the dates for the 2019 IDBF Nations World Championships were released, it was immediately apparent that the 2019 USDBF CCNC would conflict with any paddlers who would be racing for Team USA, and therefore unable to race with their home clubs at CCNC.

After hearing the issues raised by crews, and attempting to broker a date change with Great White North, it was ultimately decided by the CCNC Committee to honor the contracted race date with the Colorado Springs Dragon Boat Festival and Great White North.

The full statement on behalf of the CCNC Committee can be viewed here.

The USDBF Club Crew National Committee is seeking volunteers who are planning on traveling to Colorado Springs accompanying a Team/ paddler that would be willing to staff the merchandise tent. All merchandise and materials will be shipped in advance.
Details will be reviewed prior to the event. Interested individuals please contact Linda Donner at Linda.donner@frontiernet.net
