A Dragon Boat Club is defined as being a single Crew or group of Crews which have a formal Sports
Club Constitution which, in general terms, shows that the Club’s individual members are responsible
for the Club’s affairs; that they elect representatives to their governing Dragon Boat
organization; that they elect Club Officers and Officials to manage the affairs of their
Club; that the Club keeps properly maintained and controlled accounts; that the Aims and Objectives
of the Club and its Constitution or Statutes, are consistent with those of their own governing
Dragon Boat Association, where one exists and where appropriate, the IDBF. (Sep 02)

National Crew Representation need not apply but all competitors must have been bona fide members of
the Dragon Boat Crew that they represent, for at least SIX (6) months before the Club Crew
Championships in question.

Member who trains and competes with a Club Crew from a different Country or Territory or a
geographical Region within a Country to the one in which the Club Member himself (or herself) is
normally domiciled, will only be considered as a bona fide Club Member if they can prove that they
