If you missed the JETAA Fighting Carps in the August Sunnyside Regatta, not to worry as there is still one more and final chance to cheer for your favourite team at the 2 day GWN Dragon Boat Challenge happening in mid-September.

Come by and see one of the biggest Dragon Boat race of the season with over 60 competing teams. Not only are there races, but there will be an Athlete’s Village with food trucks and vendors as well as a Steam Whistle Beer Garden. For those with children, the Family Fun Zone will have lots of interactive children’s entertainment, sports and games.

Date: Saturday and Sunday, September 12th and 13th

Time: 9 AM – 5 PM, Race times unknown until initial qualifications

Location: Marilyn Bell Park, 1059 Lakeshore Blvd West, South of Exhibition Place and East of Jameson Avenue

Look for the Fighting Carps camp site in the park with our JETAA banner or by spotting the team’s red t-shirts.

Save the date for one of JETAA Toronto’s most popular and funnest events of the year: Axe-Throwing! Come dressed as a lumber jack, grow a beard, bring ample beverages and be prepared to feel the exhilarating sensation of throwing axes across a room (You don’t really have to grow a beard, but it can help you score points looking like a typical Axe-throwing champion).

Once again the event will be at the BATL Grounds – Backyard Axe Throwing League. The session and fee will include coaching and practice, followed by a round-robin tournament and a play-off final to determine the champion! Check out the facebook event page for more details here.

Date: Thursday, September 10, 2015 at 7:00pm
Location: BATL Axe Throwing Lanes – 33 Villiers Street
Cost: $25 + booking fee for JETAA members/ $40 + booking fee for non-JETAA members
Tickets: Must be purchased in advance at the Guestlist page
