PADDLING — Although the event is still months away, it's not to soon to consider forming a team to paddle to fame in the 2013 Montana Dragon Boat Festival Sept. 6-8 at Flathead Lake.

Sponsored by the Flathead Community Foundation at Flathead Lake Lodge, the 2012 inaugural event drew so much interest that organizers were forced to turn away a number of teams.

Race competition was fierce, but friendly. Thousands of fans and spectators viewed the event.
