Imagine if you will that your boss has decreed that the office is going to mount its own dragon boat racing team. You'll be expected to paddle in sync with 19 coworkers, staying in rhythm with the lead paddlers and a drummer while you propel the boat 250 meters.

For some of you reading this, that might be exactly what you'll be doing Saturday at Olympia's sixth annual Dragon Boat Festival.

"It's a great way to build community," says Phil Chang of the Washington Dragon Boat Association, which puts on the festival along with St. Martin's University. "If you're working at, say, an insurance company and your team was made up of employees from the insurance company, you build camaraderie in the group."
