Welcome Friends and Members to the Machestic Dragons new and improved website mounted by our talented and open hearted supporter members-volunteers.

You will easily navigate through out the site to find current team information, check out the new Member Page. Now you may even fill out your yearly membership application form, waivers and make payment of your annual dues, read the details on the Members Page.

There are so many wonderful changes within our organization. Our Membership now votes on selecting Machestic Board Members at the start of the year. We formed committees to give all Machestic Team members ownership in the forward motion of our organization, and we increased the Board of Trustees to ten members.

We had a fabulous Paddle For Pink Dragon Boat Festival. Feed back from our event guests always include the comment PFP is their favorite, the most fun and well organized festival in our region. Unlike other Dragon Boat Races our festival’s proceeds raised from the event are shared with other local charities in New Jersey. Machestic Dragons donations have amounted to nearly $100,000 through the years. Our planned beneficiaries this year are The Breast Cancer Resource Center, at the YWCA in Princeton, Mary’s Place by the Sea, and the The Healing Consciousness Foundation.

Because our team membership increased last season there are greater opportunities to satisfy paddlers of all skill levels. Naturally we all paddle together at various races and at practices; we are an eclectic group with one mission that we hold as our ideal when ever we make a decision.

If you don’t love dragon boating it’s only because you have never paddled with us, join us for a practice beginning in April, we are on the water 3 days weekly. We will always make room in our boat for you.
