  • Check out these pictures of the exhibit put on by dragonboathistory.com at the recent IDBF World Championships in Tampa, Florida, August 1-7, 2011. If you're interested in sponsoring an exhibit, contact dragonboathistory@gmail.com.
 The exhibit was set up in the lobby of the Tampa Convention Center

It included an information table, three panels, and a slideshow.

Here's my assistant, Sean, manning the information table.

The first panel was on early jingdu-style boat racing.

The second panel was on dragon boat racing in late imperial China.

The third panel covered myths and legends connected to dragon boat racing.
