Happy Valentine’s Day! Happy Erging!
Yep, for sure, absolutely guaranteed, especially if you are one of the 223 dedicated entries from any one of the 16 clubs competing at the Cincinnati Indoor Rowing Championships at Notre Dame Academy, 1699 Hilton Avenue, Park Hills, Kentucky. That’s right, the Cincinnati Indoor Rowing Championships are held not in Ohio but Kentucky. This is a Concept2, Crash-B Satellite event. The Cincinnati Junior Rowing Club will host Masters, Senior, Collegiate, High School, Adaptive, Veterans, Open, Coxswain and Junior heats.
In Oregon, the CybERG Games will be held at the University of Portland, Chiles Athletic Center, 5000 N Willamette Boulevard, Portland. Notice the nifty play on the word “cyborg” defined as the science fictional being mechanically extended beyond human limitations. Fitting because we do seem to be cogs in the machine especially on the erg. The CybERG Games are a rowing competition sanctioned by Concept2. Hosted by the Northwest Rowing Council, the CybERG Games hope to raise funds for a new 7 lane race course on Vancouver Lake.
And in Great Britain, the third oldest rowing club, the Poplar, Blackwell and District Rowing Club (PBDRC) established in 1845, will host Greenwich Head of the River.
Good luck to all at today’s venues and best wishes for a Happy Valentine’s Day to all who row! Our hearts really do beat for erging!
