Dueling Dragons of Orlando
Another installment of our Wednesday practice chronicles! A special shout out to Ms. Shally Wong and Mr. Gary CK Lau!
Last Wednesday, July 10, was another rainy Wednesday, so we met inside and did a very special exercise to allow everyone to know a little more about the adult paddlers! Another great off-the-water experience!
The kids interviewed the adults, one-on-one and asked the following questions:
*What is your profession? (Police, Firefighter or Volunteer?)
*How long have you been in your profession?
*How long have you been with Dueling Dragons?
*Why did you join Dueling dragons?
*Do you have children?
*Would you let your kids participate in Dueling Dragons?
*Tell me something about yourself that no one else on the team would know.
When Part 1 of the exercise was completed each teen paddler stood at the front of the room with their adult interviewee and told everyone the answers to the above questions.
Lots of surprises ... one of the adults is a certified pilot, one sat in the royal box at Wimbledom with Duchess Kate and Prince William, one is a comedian, one loves air fresheners and one is newly diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes.
Then ... we had Ms. Shally Wong and Mr. Gary CK Lau join us to give Ms. Shally a gift. The two of them have been with the dragon boat club from even before we owned any dragon boats. AND ... Ms. Shally was just appointed to work with Mayor Demings on cultural diversity, making sure he knows about dragon boating and our Asian community, among other things.
All in all, it was a great practice 😉😃
