Dolphin Dive Center's experienced instructors guide potential divers though the process of earning their flippers with safety and expertise. Before hi-fiving mermaids or snapping shots of celebrity anemones, novice aquanauts tote their swimsuits and towels to the YWCO's heated pool where they will plunge into the fathomable depths under the supervision of a water-wise guide. Students are introduced to the basics of scuba, including the proper use of diving equipment and breathing techniques. The Discover Scuba lesson is available to anyone 10 years of age or older, and all scuba equipment is provided for the class. For customers that redeem today's deal, Dolphin Dive Center will take $35 off a full scuba-certification course (normally $395) if they sign up for the full certification within two months of the Discover class, finally bringing you access to continental shelf shuffleboard leagues.

On a remote farm in northeast Georgia, hundreds of people are lining up to slog through mud and scamper over obstacles for 5 kilometers. Some may say they’re crazy, and some may say they’re being pursued by a pack of hungry toddlers, but they’d both be wrong—these brave hundreds are athletes dashing through the MuckRun obstacle course.

Meandering through forests, swamps, and creeks, the 5K MuckRun course tests runners with obstacles such as mud slides, hay-bale pyramids, and a human spider web. At the conclusion of the race, an awards ceremony bestows prizes upon the victors, and live tunes and food nourish the ears and mouths of each contestant. Just like at an all-company meeting, there's also a prize for the person with the best costume. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Food Bank of Northeast Georgia.

The cast of Discovery Channel’s “Moonshiners” are a professionally reclusive bunch, brewing generations-old recipes in camouflaged stills beside their homes. Still, many beyond the hidden hills of Appalachia celebrate their traditions, and their product. The Moonshiner Festival gathers together some of the cast to meet their fans for three days of live music, barbecuing, camping, and, of course, drinking moonshine. Cast members in attendance include Mark Rogers and Jeff Waldroup, Lynn Waldroup and Lance Waldroup, and Mike Lewis and Bobby Tweedy. They dole out autographs and sit down to meals with the festival attendees, possibly even joining in to cut a rug to the musical stylings of the Smoking Guns or Hooch Holler.
