Saturday/Sunday March 23/24 at Tempe Town Lake, APS is hosting the 10th annual Dragon Boat Festival. There are at least 6 teams in the valley that practice weekly and all welcome new paddlers. Dragon Boating is a 3,000 year old team sport that began in China and is now flourishing world wide. My team is made up of breast cancer survivors, another is special olympics young adults, Mayo Clinic has 2, some are university alums, others are open to anyone interested. It's a great workout and there's a place for everyone from casual weekend paddlers to hard core enthusiasts.
If anyone is interested, I'd be happy to give you more info. Carp;
Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss you will land amongst the stars.
