Lake Arlington's surface ripples in the breeze as shouts, cheers, and drumbeats echo across its shores. Ornately painted boats, carved into the likeness of Chinese dragons, glide across the water to the rhythm of 40 paddles turning in unison. The male and female boaters at Chicago International Dragon Boat Festival split into four racing divisions and follow the roots of a traditional eastern sport as they paddle, drum, and steer in coordination with their teammates. Spectators view the proceedings from tiered grandstands, which enable them to see the full scope of the race without having to rent a jetpack. They can also revel at an outdoor beer garden, listen to live entertainment, and usher their kids to participate in interactive activities in the Dragon's Nest. Competitors plunge into challenge races to benefit causes such as public services and breast-cancer research and rush to complete the most pushups after the race during the Workout of the Dragons.
This year's event benefits the nonprofit organization Salute, Inc., whose staffers work to support soldiers and veterans through fundraisers. Great White North assembles the event in partnership with local Windy City Dragons, in an effort to pay it forward to local charities while spreading enthusiasm for the sport. Their staffers also design each boat, specializing in the crafting of ornate vessels bearing the likenesses of colorful Chinese dragons and glorious Burt Reynoldses.

Describe a time your services really changed a client's life for the better.
I had a customer (a college student) on a budget and leaving to go back to college in another state. We initially gave him the bass he was looking for and sold him an amplifier and proper wires to go along with his sub. A week passed by, and the customer asked if we could put in his interior speakers. He was headed back to college and had a long drive ahead of him. We got the speakers in, gave him an awesome price, and he was very satisfied with everything that was done. I get a call the next day, and it was that customer driving on his way to college, [and he] thanked us [for making] his drive a lot better than it was than before. The power of music can raise your joy even on a 4+ hour drive. Though this college student brought in most of his equipment, we took care of him when other big retail stores would not even look at what he already had. He was on a budget. Also, this customer drove an hour away from his home to come and get his vehicle serviced. When he comes back into town, his words were, "I'm always coming to you guys!" The most important factor in a business is the ability to earn trust for future endeavors.
Besides making clients happy, what do you like most about your job?
The friendships that you acquire from those customers whom you made a big difference in their lives.
When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
I started back in 1996, but didn't blossom until 2000 when I gained enough experience and confidence. I love customization and I'm glad I can share some of my work with the customers.
At Go Chicago Golf, group and private indoor lessons are available year-round so students can hone their craft even in winter's foulest depths. Players take most of their lessons in front of a projection screen that simulates a sunny day out on the links. They can play their choice of 9 or 18 holes on a 100- or 300-yard practice course, or, if they fear spending another 20 years trapped in an arcade game, practice on the learning center's nonvirtual targets. Students can also use an onsite video-analysis room to objectively check their swings and postures.
