WHERE?  Putney Rowing Club
WHEN? Saturday September 29 at 9 am
Come to the annual CRWC’s Source to Sea Cleanup event and help clean up the banks around our club and landing.

It’s a great opportunity to spiff up the area for the regatta as well as keep our river healthy.

Trash bags and gloves will be provided.
See you then!

September 15 Long Row . . .

We had a massively successfull row to Brattlelboro (BOC docks) and back Saturday September 15, 2012.

Carol, Basha, Chris, Eve, Linda, Johanna, Marie, Beth, Sally, Peter and Michael all participated. We were treated to a beautiful sunrise, with views of many swimming squirrels (swimming to NH, mainly, what up with that?) and a couple of circling eagles. 

We may be inspired to do another long row this fall before docks are out. 

More later, Michael
