Red sky at night is a sailor’s delight, but red sky at morning means the ship's been steered inside a volcano. Discover further aquaformation with today’s Groupon: for $55, you get a spot in a four-week dragon-boat rowing league at Limestone City Dragon Boat Club (a $111.87 value, including HST). Leagues meet Monday and Wednesday nights from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. or Tuesday and Thursday nights from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. from July 5 to 28 or from August 1 to 25.

Limestone City Dragon Boat Club fosters teamwork and socializing as groups of rowers skim across the water during weeknight sessions of a recreational dragon-boat league. Dragon boating plunks paddlers into long, narrow, low-set dragon boats, decorated with scales on the sides, a tail at the stern, and a damsel in distress in each scaly claw. As vessels knife through the water, oar dunkers sit in pairs and row in sync to the beat reverberating from a huge drum pounded by a licensed, first-aid-certified captain. The club provides all necessary gear, including oars and tuning forks. Participants also get a Limestone City T-shirt and 25% off casual fare at Merchant Tap House, as well as free nachos when eight or more dragon boaters dine together Monday–Thursday nights (membership cards required; discount excludes food specials).

Limestone City Dragon Boat Club

Limestone City Dragon Boat Club was established in 2010 to offer recreational summer dragon-boating programs that promote teamwork and a healthy lifestyle. Dragon boats resemble a typical canoe or racing shell, with the additions of scales painted onto the side and a prominent dragon head jutting off the forward bow, just like the ones that were used in training for medieval lifeguard certification. On the water, one drummer and one steersman shout orders to two rows of participants sitting side by side and 10 deep, adding up to 22 total people on board at once. The paddlers—many of whom arrive with no prior experience—work as a team to propel the dragon forward and are encouraged to make friends along the way. In addition to adult recreational programs, the club offers team-building clinics that are an ideal way to bond coworkers without requiring them to share the same computer.

Did it last year and enjoyed it. Groupon made the difference of trying it for two months this year. Thanks.
