David Pic.jpgWe would like to express our sincere condolences to the family and many friends of Dave Statham who recently passed away.  Dave had been a strong supporter of our Dragon Boat Festival for many years during which he acted as our starter and race official.  He was dedicated in every task he performed, running races on time, during and through many weather and other challenges that a large boating regatta repeatedly present.  Dave was a dedicated and strong volunteer for our Festival.  His many friends of both our Festival and the Rideau Canoe Club appreciate his significant contributions to our histories.
