I wanted to update the information that I posted yesterday. First, I got the dates a little off for the Master National Championships. The are August 17th - 20th. See Below.

Also, the Mayor's Cup has been cancelled for this year. So no early scrimmage/race in Providence.

And as of this date, there is still some consideration being given to having some of our younger rowers attend the Club National Championships in Bethel, Ohio, so those dates have been added below.
