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.

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.
