Have you ever wondered what dragon boating is all about? Now's your chance to find out. The Oakland Renegades Dragon Boat Team invites all Meetup folks to come and try it out. No experience is necessary, all age groups and fitness levels are welcome and we provide all the gear. It's an outdoor, physical activity with occasional splashing so dress accordingly.
The Renegades Dragon Boat Team is a partnership with the Oakland Recreation and Parks Department to provide an opportunity for the community to experience the sport of dragon boating. The first time is free to see if you like it and then if you decide you'd like to continue, the Parks Dept. charges a fee of $45 for 6 months. You'll be paddling with an established team but we constantly have new people trying the sport and joining our team so as a novice, you'll be in good company.
Practices are held at the Lake Merritt Boat House at the following times:
Wednesdays meet at 5:45 PM and paddle until 7:00 PM.
Saturdays meet at 10:15 AM and paddle until 12:00 noon.
