Chicago Sprints Regatta 2014
Please Note: The dates used on these logo designs remain tentative. We hope to officially announce the Sprints dates soon.
LPBC has cancelled its plans to row on St. Patrick's Day. This decision was made out of concern for the safety of rowing in the combined water and air temperatures forecast for Saturday morning. The St. Patrick's Day row is a slow row that involves a lot of stopping due in part to the traffic on the river, which increases the risk of cold-weather-related safety issues. LPBC's sweep team will have a team workout at the lagoon boathouse, followed by a brunch. Anyone interested in participating can email Head Coach Trish Brubaker at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Anyone who wishes to row on Saturday might still be able to participate in the St. Pat's Sprint for Recovery, which is co-run by CRF and ROW. There is a $40 fee to cover the cost of running the event; ROW is supported through additional fundraising leading up to the event. You can also donate directly to ROW at http://www.firstgiving.com/recoveryonwater/st-pats-sprint-for-recovery-2014/teams. If you would like to join the weekend's row, contact Jenn Gibbons at email@example.com. If you do row on Saturday, please take extra precautions to protect yourself from the cold.
