Returning to the Water

The dragon boats have been sleeping at Millvale all winter. It's almost time to wake them up!

Our weekly practice schedule will switch back to Mondays and Wednesdays the week of April 9. Starting Monday, April 9, we will meet at the Millvale boathouse for ALL practices. Monday/Wednesday practices will begin at 6:30 PM and Saturdays will begin at 9:00 AM.

Until then, we will meet as usual. If the weather (and TRRA rules) let us go out on the water on a Tuesday/Thursday before April, then we will drive from Washington's Landing to Millvale to put the dragon boat in the water. Bring water clothes and gear to practices, just in case!

you know, you have to be very careful on waking sleeping dragons...
they've been known to burn people to a crisp:

(taken from the Mighty Max TV series plot outline at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mighty_Max_%28TV_series%29)

"Max is summoned by Virgil while grocery shopping, taking a portal to Norway. The three scale the cliff beneath the dragon, arriving at its stone, open mouth. Norman makes an address to the slumbering lizard, revealing that he fought this dragon before. They enter the dragon's throat, Virgil sensing that Ravendark's awakening spell is almost complete.

Amongst the various treasures in the dragon's throat, Norman finds the hammer and helmet of Thor - it is revealed that Norman was Thor.

They come across Ravendark, who is nearly finished casting the spell. Norman charges him, but Ravendark stops him with a blast of energy. They try to talk him out of waking the dragon. Skullmaster's voice sounds from the acidic pit through which he has been communicating with Ravendark, demanding to know the cause of the delay. He realises Max is there, and orders Ravendark to wake the dragon. Ravendark finishes the spell, and the dragon awakes.

Fire rushes toward them from its belly - exulting that he is free of his curse, Ravendark casts a spell of protection for himself. Max, Virgil and Norman try to escape from the dragon's mouth, but Max falls behind and seeks shelter from the flames in an empty treasure chest. Virgil and Norman escape out the dragon's mouth just as it blearily rears its head to the sky."

Oh yes, them dragons, they be scary ;)
