2016 Dragon Boat Race Results

2016 Southern Tier Brewing Co. Dragon Boat Team; B Division Champions

The inaugural event in 2016 an overwhelming success, over 20 boats with teams from local sponsors, community groups along with several experienced teams from the likes of Pittsburgh, Ithaca and Buffalo competed in races on Chautauqua Lake. With over 1,000 people gathered at Lucille Ball Memorial Park in Celoron for the races participants, friends and family shared in a fun-filled afternoon of friendly competition that benefited the Chautauqua Lake Association.

“In the eyes of the committee it was a tremendous success,” said Heather Nolan, who co-chaired the event and is the CLA’s finance and community relations manager. “One of our goals was to involve the entire community and encourage people that do not typically utilize our beautiful lake to do so. With the turn out we received at the Celoron Park for this event, I believe we met that goal.”
