I was thinking earlier that I really shouldn’t dragon boat next year. Not because it’s hard and I’m terrible at it (see my Paddles of Pain blog for details), or that I slide around the boat like I’m covered in Vaseline and I feel like I’m in a slapstick comedy film, but because it’s expensive. I figure I could use that money for something else more important, like a haircut, or trainers without holes in, or a sledge made by Porsche (they exist) or a cat bed shaped like a tank (they’re real n’all).
But then it occurred to me that perhaps our team could get sponsored! Actually, we were sponsored last year but it was a strange arrangement – the pub bought us crappy vests with their name on, which we wore on race day, and we went to their pub after practice each week and bought beer and chips from them. So, you see, any sponsor would be an improvement over that kind of mafia style protection racket deal.
So, after having some wild and crazy success with Twitter appeals this week I figure I should push my luck and ask IS THERE ANYONE OUT THERE WHO WANTS TO SPONSOR OUR DRAGON BOAT TEAM?! I’ll tell you now, it’s not cheap, it costs several thousand dollars to put a boat in the water and make people suffer. However, I am quite confident that we, as a team, would be more than willing to prostitute ourselves week-in, week-out, during the grueling training, all in the name of giving our sponsor maximum exposure.
Here’s a list of the things you could get for your money:
So, yeah, in conclusion, we’re a good deal, sponsor us please!
