Congratulations to the participants in Sunday’s Head of the Dog regatta–put on by our friends at Portland Boat Club.  Station L came away with trophies for fastest men’s 1x, fastest 2x overall, and B.O.B.–Best of Breed for best costume.  Based on our costume efforts this year and last, this trophy should be considered a collective achievement!  Full results here

Sculling Schedule–In October we start to pull back our schedule due to the dangers of darkness and reduced demand for coaching.  Tuesdays are discontinued effective this week.

Dock Update–we think the in water work will be done this week.  We won’t know our moving date until the dock actually gets moved back–so stay tuned.

Race Round Ross and LTR graduate party–This Saturday October 7 we celebrate the end of our Learn to Row classes with an all club scrimmage–including our LTR graduates!   Meet at the boathouse at 7am for lineups.  We will race around Ross Island for time (coaches will take bribes to alter finish times).  Then back to the boathouse for a potluck brunch.  Please bring food to share.    Who knows–this could turn into a giant moving party as well.

Portland Fall Classic October 29.   Look for a separate mailing with the volunteer sign up for this regatta.  It takes a couple hundred people to put on this event, now in its 11th year.
