Find your inner dragon
On Saturday 16 January 2016, the Yarra River Dragons and Dragon Masters Dragonboat clubs will open their doors to new paddlers to come and try paddling in a dragonboat. People aged 13 to 100 years old are welcome to join us, but if you are under 18 you will need to bring a parent or guardian to paddle with you!

You don't have to be super sporty or really fit, just keen to have a bit of an adventure and some fun. There's no pressure to join the club, and the paddling session is absolutely free!

One of the things I love about Weekend Notes is articles like this, that let everybody know about unusual and unexpected things to do.
