Kauka Dragons Kick Off Meeting! 

May 19th - 5:30 PM 

Location: FLBM

Last year, the Finger Lakes Boating Museum launched its own dragon boat club! Popular around the globe, Dragon Boating is a team sport where teams of rowers paddle in unison in an attempt to move their dragon shaped boat faster than that of an opponent. It requires a lot of teamwork, a little physicality and a boatload of comradery. (No pun intended.) If you're interested in joining the FLBM Dragon Boating team please join us May 19th at 5:30 PM a the FLBM for our kickoff! We hope to see you there!
