Pioneer Rowing Club ~ 4K Race in Northfield, MA on October 12, 2013

The Pioneer Rowing Club
(out of Pioneer Valley Regional School in Northfield, MA)

is hosting their 2nd annual regatta on

Saturday, October 12, 2013
9:00 a.m. Start
Small Stake Race, 4K 
on the Connecticut River in Northfield, MA

High School students and women's masters are invited. 

Pioneer Rowing Club is just trying to cover the cost of a couple sanicans and some award medals, so the cost of entry is $80, unlimited number of entries. 
Events: 1X, 2X, 4+.

Lenox, Holyoke, Springfield and the Pioneer Rowing Club are participating. They would love to have anyone from PRC or RowBOC join in on the fun. 

It is a small event, & real informal.

We row about 3 miles north of NMH on the same side of the river. We actually launch and row upstream 500 meters and we are in New Hampshire. It is a private dock on the river. If a large contingent of the Putney Rowing Club is interested I would have you launch at the Northfield Boat Ramp which is about a 1/4 mile from our dock, if there is only a few, then we could fit you on our small postage stamp piece of land along the river.
Phone Robert W Englehardt at 413-695-7971 if you want to talk directly or have any questions.

Annual Source to Sea Cleanup ~ Saturday September 28 at 9:00 a.m.

Hello Rowers,
It’s that time of year again—the annual Source to Sea Cleanup, sponsored by the Connecticut River Watershed Council.  This year, we’ll meet Saturday morning, Sept. 28, at 9 am (Hey, you’ll be down around the boat house anyway...) at the PRC.  I’ll have garbage bags and gloves available.  It only takes an hour, and last year we had a good group.  The several bags of junk we collected not only helped clean the river and banks, it also helped spiff up the place for the regatta.
Hope to see lots of you next Saturday. Contact me if you’ve got questions.
