What You'll Get
Scientists agree that ample doses of fresh air and sunshine provide an effective antidote to both seasonal blues and weekend ceruleans. Get your prescribed dosage of vitamin D with today's Groupon to the British American Sporting Club in Crawfordville. Choose between the following options:
- For $20, you get one admission to an Intro to Freestyle Sporting Clays class (a $40 value).
- For $60, you get admission to a falconry flight show (a $250 value).
Modeled after an old English sporting estate, British American Sporting Club sates recreational needs with a variety of historic pursuits and modern amusements. Amateur outdoorspeople can learn the basics of freestyle sporting clays on a mile-wide course mimicking upland bird fields, outfitted with discreet target throwers and multiple shooting pegs. With 25 cartridges and clays, as well as gun rental and appropriate protection for delicate sensory receptors, you can establish a solid base upon which to build long-distance apple-coring skills. Bird enthusiasts and hunting buffs alike will enjoy the one- to two-hour falconry flight show (length depends on group size), where master falconer Mitchell Dickey outlines the history of this noble sport. Marvel at a feathered ensemble including a red-tailed hawk, a peregrine falcon, and a harris hawk, taking to the air for flight demonstrations and miniaturized skywriting sessions. The falcon show is followed by a complimentary English-tea service in the club's pub-styled Tudor Rose Restaurant.
Note that the falconry flight show expires on March 31, 2011 as falcons cannot fly once it gets too warm outside.
