Steers person Doug, aka Santa Claus, turned 80




We had a party during the Victoria Regatta and the reason? Our wonderful steers person, Doug Kilburn, aka Santa Claus, turned 80 this August.  Not only does he steer for the majority of practices (best on False Creek by some reckoning), he steers for the Eh Team during our regattas as well, and will continue to do so.  Congratulations, Doug. 


Loved by all members, he had a special kiss for his wife Jan.     





And the presentation of a very unusual gift.  Its Doug to a tee!

The school program, which has kept The Eh Team and Coach busy throughout the spring, saw hundreds of school age children out on their first Dragon Boat experience.  This has been rewarding not just to the children but to the members of the team that took part in these adventures.
