Brookline Rowing Chair Update

We had an amazing response to the chairs and the order is in.  Given the circumstances on Friday, the order was delayed and will not make it in time to dominate the Q cup in our flashy Brookline Rowing chairs.  If you haven’t mailed your check for payment, please send it along to: Julie Bell, 20 Brington Road, Brookline, 02445.

Result Emails and Pictures

I failed to give proper credit for the last result email that I sent out.  The overviews of the races are written by Coach Katy and Lenni.  Thanks so much to them to making this effort following a long day of racing.  Thanks to Cassia Wyner, pictures of the races can be found at: https://plus.google.com/photos/101020617091489739462/albums

Please join us by the lake on Saturday! Look for our red and blue tents at the Donahue Rowing Center on the Shrewsbury side of the lake.
