Building & Development Challenge Cup

PRESENTED BY: MINTO

What is the Building & Development Challenge Cup?

Whether you are hard at work on a construction site or expanding Ottawa's light rail transit, the Building & Development Challenge Cup is for you.  Put down your hammer and pick up a paddle, take a break from building our community to building a team and proving that you are Ottawa's top builder!  The festival is a great way to come together to strengthen your team on the water and on site.

Past participants in the Building & Development Challenge Cup have represented companies who are involved in construction, project development, engineering consultants and building materials.

Challenge Cup teams must have a minimum of 9 people racing from the designated cup category. For example, if you are entering the High Tech Challenge your team must have a minimum of 9 paddlers who are employed with the High Tech organization the team represents. Challenge Cups require a minimum of 3 teams so issue a challenge to your competition and get ready to beat them on the water!

Some great reasons to enter a team:

     · Be a part of North America's largest dragon boat festival

     · We provide everything you need (paddles and PFDs), oh and the boat too

     · We'll show you how - two free practices with fun and knowledgeable coaches

     · Decorate your 10x20' team site to compete for the best team site award or promote who you are what you do
