We Will Rock You logo

We will rock you


We are a brand new team created to be a sister team to the Guns n Roses team.  Both experienced and new paddlers with no prior experience are very welcome to join us.  ANYONE can participate in this inclusive sport and the Rusty Dragons make it a rewarding and fun experience for all.  We want you to try it and see for yourself with this new team.  Many on the team are from the Drag'n Angels team who should return as a whole team next year.  Your team captains here, Yvonne and Kevin, are the team captains from that team.


Many of our teams are named after rock bands or songs.  This team is named after the popular Queen song.  The band was formed in 1970 and needless to say that Freddie Mercury was fabulous in so many ways.  We plan to rock the waters and awards stage!


2022 June 17 Update:  The team jerseys were ordered and our new logo is just being unveiled now (pictured at left).  The jerseys are crimson red with this logo on the front and the Rusty Dragons logo on the right sleeve.  We'll have them at our last practice on June 30th.   There is room for 1-2 more paddlers to join the team (your fee will be prorated down to what you use).
