Our favorite Latte Lady, Zita will be with us again. As we get an up close and personal view of the races, Coaches Eleanor and Bob will join us to provide their color commentary. At the completion we will disembark at the point of origin and will be encouraging folks to make the short drive back to Conibear Shell house (construction in process) for the post-race barbeque and awards ceremony.  This will give you an opportunity to see our new boathouse under construction.

Class Day BBQ with the Team

The BBQ is back by popular demand!  The BBQ is served up by the Stewards to the team and also free (donations accepted) to all of the parents, friends and alums at the crewhouse after the races.

On the menu are burgers (or garden burgers), and hot dogs, along with chips, cookies, and a beverage.

The BBQ will begin about 11:30, or when the coals are hot.  It is served up on a first come, first served basis - once the food is gone it's gone - so get there early!  See you there!
