An excellent turnout for HT Crew's first Open House at the Boathouse on Cooper River, the team's home base. It was great to see so many new rowers and a fair number of students who just wanted to learn more about the sport. We were busy giving tours, so there wasn't much time for photo taking - but we were still able to take a few.
Practice is ON as scheduled tomorrow. Make sure you wear sun screen and bring a water bottle!
All are welcome to attend HT Crew Club's Open House on Saturday, September 10th from 10am to Noon at the Camden Boathouse on the Cooper River. This is home based for the team. It's where we practice and where our boats are stored. The Open House is a chance to examine the fleet, talk with coaches about the upcoming season, meet other members and better understand odd crew lingo (rigging, crabs, skying, scull and sweep). There may even be a chance to get on the water.
In honor of the holiday and weekend travel plans for many rowers - there will be no practice this Friday and Saturday (9/2 and 9/3). Practice will resume on Tuesday, September 6th, 3:30pm at the Cooper River Boathouse. Have a wonderful and safe holiday.
For those who want to get a jump on the season... the coaches are holding special practice sessions in starting Monday August 29th through Saturday Sept. 3rd. Start time is 3:30pm. On Saturday, practice begins at 8am. Report to the Cooper River Boathouse. This is voluntary..but we do need a head count so let the coaches know if you plan to come out.
Just in time for the fall season, HT has some spiffy looking oars thanks to the hard work of rowers and members who spent much of last Saturday sanding, painting and waiting --- for paint to dry. In 80% humidity, it takes awhile. Special thanks to organizer Jim Howley, and shout out to participating rowers: Ella Clemens, Luke Brown, Paul Duffy, Vince Fitzpatrick, Olivia Herbstritt, Daniel McGarry, Erik Tingley, Alex Tingley, Dave Wakely and to members Shannon Clemens, Dan and Jen McGarry, Anita Brown, David Wakely, Ellen Shuttleworth and Vince Fitzpatrick Sr.
The 2016 Learn to Row camp is one of the most successful programs to date. Twenty young athletes signed up and they have been impressive. Focused, energetic, quick studies and talented. Rowing is a challenging sport - but the 2016 LTR participants have taken to it like - dare we say - fish to water.
Paul Duffy represented HTCC this morning in the first day of the USRowing Youth National Championship. Paul put together a great race in tough conditions, finishing fifth. This should have been enough to advance him to tomorrow's Reps. Unfortunately, due to these rough conditions and a forecast for high winds, race organizers have been forced to cancel the Reps and all Sunday racing, meaning that Paul did not move on to Semis. It is a tough break for Paul but fuel for next year as he returns for his senior year with the club. Great job Duff!
