EDBF Congress 31st July 2017 - Headlines

07 August 2017
Below are the headlines from the EDBF Congress, held on the 31st of July 2017.

EDBF President/EDBF Treasurer

The new EDBF President is Claudio Schermi from Italy.
The new EDBF Treasurer is Maura Dezi from Italy.

Both will formerly take over their positions as of 1st January 2018. In the 5 month transition period Alan and Claudio will be working closely together to close out any outstanding issues and ensure that there is a smooth changeover.
On behalf of the EDBF Council may I take this opportunity to thank Alan van Caubergh and Nataliia Kravtsova for all their work for the Federation over the last number of years. Both have worked tirelessly for the EDBF in a purely voluntary basis.

EDBF ENC 2017

13th EDBF European Nations Championships will be held in Brandenberg an der Havel, Germany between 23rd - 26th August 2016. Bulletin no. 1 will be issued before Christmas 2017.

EDBF Convention

The Congress agreed that they would like to hold an EDBF Convention in Belgrade, Serbia over the weekend of 24th - 26th November 2017. Friday, 24th November will be reserved for the Executive Committee Meeting with the Convention formally starting on Saturday morning. The main aim of the Convention is for us all to discuss and analyse our sport. Further details on the event will be issued in the coming weeks, but in the meantime if there are any items you would like included on the agenda, please let us know.

    Dear friends of the Dragon Boat Community of Europe, to be a “community” means to be a team, to be friends, to know each other and to support each other. In my visit in Armenia I met people that love our sport, that want to grow, that want to develop also the social part with a specific adaptive dragon boat project. Last week end some Armenian Athlets were in Spain and next Monday ArmDBF will enter the EDBF EC 2018 in Brandenburg. Happy birthday to the President of the Armenian Dragon Boat Federation, Makar Sargsyan, today 32 year old and my best wishes to continue in his commitment for our sport. #newgenerations Claudio Schermi EDBF President

    Berlino - meeting with the Organizing Committee of the next European Nations Championships in Brandenburg from 23 to 26th August. With me Slawek Borucki, in his key role within our sport. He is responsible for registration, race program and EDBF web site. Ute Becker and Gitta Weber are doing a great job and all details and criticism are under control. A lot of provisional Entries and other are expected very soon. Looking forward to see in Brandenburg all the top Paddlers of the dragon boat community of Europe. Following the request received we will reconsider the possibility to add the class open in Senior C standard boat. Claudio Schermi EDBF President
