You will find there have been a lot of great races, some updates can be found on our Facebook site, and we’ll get further reports and stories later this week.
A few schedule related announcements. . .
•This Sunday sculling practice will begin at 6am. Better water, lower temperature, and time to watch the World Cup soccer final. A bonus–members are welcome to watch the game at Peter’s house. He’s serving blueberry french toast casserole with bacon, fruit and coffee. Email him if you need the address. Game time is 8am. France vs. Croatia (fun fact–Croatia’s population is equal to that of Oregon).
•During the remainder of the summer regatta season, we plan to run all Saturday and Sunday coached sessions as scheduled. If we need to make a cancellation, we will announce it specifically.
The deadline to sign up for Row for the Cure and Green Lake has been extended from today until Monday July 2. Please sign up if you want to participate. For Green Lake, numbers need to be larger if we are going to make the trip. . . . Use our sign up page
On Wednesday July 4, all 5am rowing is replaced with a 7am Open Row. Regular schedule July 5 (or as we call it, the worst get up early day of the summer). No LTR classes on July 4.
Swing shift rowing is on this week, T and TH, meeting at 6:45am. It’s staffed by Peter while Sarah takes a well deserved vacation. Want time in a small boat? Or some specific feedback and stroke correction? Swing shift is for you. Plus you won’t have to go to bed while it’s still light out the night before. . . .
We’re at the 1/2 way mark of the year, with our biggest regatta behind us. Quite the weekend, full of thrilling finishes and gutsy performances.
•A major thank you to our stellar coaching staff–Jim, Kelsey, Leslie, Sarah and Brad. And sculling coordinator Penny. And coxes. You all make complex things look simple.
•No novice sweep rowing Monday June 25. No sculling Monday June 25.
•No advanced sweep Tuesday June 26.
•Level 3 men/women sculling WILL happen on Tuesday June 26. As will Swing Shift at 6:45am
•Learn to Row classes will go on as scheduled.
