Last I heard, they disbanded years ago. Bad politics I gather

Dragonslayers were never the MOST dominant. Very good at best.

No disband. Wong's were in both Lachine and Ottawa this year, but are not the force they once were. Still one of the better Montreal teams but Verdun is clearly now the top.

The club went from four boats in 2005 - Dragonslayers, Immortal Dragons, Chargers, Crusaders - down to one or maybe two this year.

Looks like the webiste died in 2005 as well.

If you must know...

what happened to the Wongs??

The Wongs Dragonslayers ruled in their prime. MCC was the only team to beat them in the NCCCC (can't remember the year) Won the race off to go to the Worlds in Rome by a mile, where they won the bronze after Madawaska's silver and can't remember who's gold (italy I think, but they must have been doped up <sic>)

They came, they ruled and they retired. Mayfair took over and they reign supreme. Until the next team takes over. End of story. Slayers are presently getting fat, getting laid and talking about the good old days. Rumour has it that the old team is planning a reunion and considering taking over the curling world...wait a minute, isn't Maplebear doing that now? Damn, back to getting fat...

There is life after d-boat folks, and it's pretty nice. Lily I love you. Ok you too Gordon:)))

The original "Wongs" was a mix of sprinters and this goes back to the late 90's. Not all were from Ottawa and Montreal but a good chunk of them were and the boat was stacked. What you see now is nothing like the "original".

Hey, is that you, old guy?

We never did get around to gathering the gang for a brewski after you came back from vacation?

It was Drago (Germany) would ran away from Madawaska. It was a race to watch. The German's were just brutes.

I believe the Wong's slip from dominance was due to managements not allowing their women paddlers to paddle on both the Montreal Women's team and the Wongs... most of those dominant women left to join Verdun Adren. and still paddle to this day on both Verdun and the recently silver medalist Montreal Women at Malaysia...
Good decision on management

Such arrogance to assume that the Montreal Women are such an integral part of any team.

Thank the lord! The Montreal Women are the saviors! Verdun is a dominant force thanks to them! Sorry honey, that kind of attitude will kill teams. I guess that's why Montreal has fallen off the map.

God, what a bunch of wankers!!!!

What was was. It was great and everyone got out of it exactly what they put in and deserved. Get over yourselves already.

``Thank the lord! The Montreal Women are the saviors! Verdun is a dominant force thanks to them! ``

from the results from Malay and the better than you attitude Wong managers did the right thing probabbly too late too. Verdun sucks and the women elite got killed by 5 seconds. And you are proud of your silver placeing? What egos man!!!

Wongs better off withoutr you and probably will rebuild again without their saviours oh my god how they must miss you

everyone knows that the women`s team was fast in the past but there was always rumours of being helped by wrong methods and you could tell by their manly features. I became disillusioned by the team and quit in disgust by the attitudes. I am not surprised by the arrogance of the replies. Now adays the girls are skinny and not as muscled as we used to be and so they are slower.

later
