Local:

PDRT Fireblades took the 2nd place at the recently concluded 3rd La Laguna Dragonboat Race held at Lumban River last March 10, 2013.

Despite the result of our first heat, we still managed to bounce back on our succeeding heats. That lane 1 was horrible but glad we still clocked in a good time. In the end, PDRT Fireblades had the best cumulative time but Fleet Marine won the race via point system.
