RACE DATE: SATURDAY, AUGUST 16th, 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM
Please email eemet@goodwin.edu if you would like to sign up for this year's Dragon Boat team.
The event will last all day on Saturday, August 16, at the base of the Connecticut Science Center.
We will also be having at least 3 practices during the week, between July 15th and race weekend.
If you are able to commit to the four races on August 16, and a minimum of three practices, we would like you to join us on the Connecticut River, for what will be a great time.
No experience required, but knowing how to swim is (the dog-paddle counts). Here's a sample of what to expect.
This event is free to students, and signups will close as the boats are filled.
