Welcome Friends and Members to the Machestic Dragons new and improved website mounted by two of 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.

So many wonderful changes within our organization as we begin our 2016 season. 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: seven survivors and 3 supporters.

Our 11th Annual Paddle For Pink Dragon Boat Festival is on the horizon, save the date, Saturday June 10, 2017. 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 seventy thousand dollars through the year’s, this year’s recipients are The Breast Cancer Resource Center, at the YWCA in Princeton, Mary by the Sea, and the Healing Conscious Foundation.

Because our team has grown in membership last season there are greater opportunities to satisfy paddlers of all skill levels. A long awaited Competitive Breast Cancer Survivor Team has emerged, and our Supporter Team now have their own captain for the season. 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.
