On Memorial Day weekend of May 2014, the Oregon crew’s novice women’s 8+, varsity women’s 4+, varsity men’s lightweight 4+, and the varsity men’s pair traveled to Gainesville, Georgia, for the ACRA National Championship Regatta. The men’s 4+ placed 12th overall, the men’s pair placed 8th overall, and the women’s 4+ placed 10th overall. But, most impressively, the women’s 8+ placed 2nd place overall. With this stunning performance ended our 2014 season. Great job to everyone who rowed this year! Row ducks!
During UO’s homecoming week, the rowing team will be hosting the “Repaint the O” alumni event, whcih is a chance for alumni in the Eugene and Portland areas to reconnect with the UO club, rowers, and coaches at beautiful Dexter Lake on October 18th, 2014.
The event will include:
– Repainting the “O”, the symbol of Oregon, that is on the concrete above our dock. Given the winter weather in Eugene, it is due for a fresh coat of paint (supplies provided by the club)
– A tour of the boathouse, and quick summary of the team’s recent accomplishments by Head Coach Marlene Kindorf
– Weather permitting, a possible alumni row
– A barbeque that gives alumni the chance to mingle and share stories with each other and current UO rowers
The event will last roughly two hours, from 11-1pm on Saturday October 18th. All alumni and friends are welcome at the event, but to ensure that we have enough food for everyone we ask that you RSVP with us at firstname.lastname@example.org. In the email, please indicate if you’re interested in participating in an alumni row!
