July 20   MORE SAD NEWS!!!!!!!!  enthusiastic MI member Penelope has died
Penelope (P*) '35  USA (2006-2009)
With a sad heart, Penelope had to give up rowing because of nerve damage in her arm. She was all set to row with us at the 2010 FISA Masters in St. Catharines
It was a shock to hear that P* died on July 16, only 2 months after we talked about her rowing experiences with MI at FISA and US Masters. She also wanted a certain photo of her Camden 4- to incorporate in one of her glass works.
SAD NEWS!
Louise Hasting's sister, Martha Coffey (also a masters rower) was hit by a car on Friday, Sept 30. She was killed instantly. The sisters were close so Louise must be absolutely heartbroken. We all extend our condolences.

Louise and Cori are now coming to race in her memory.

Our new regatta tent!
Eureka Jade Canyon 4 tent:  8x8ft
With a 20% discount coupon, I was able to get it for a reasonable price.
Thanks to some donations from some of our US rowers this year, we were able to afford
this new tent. Our old one would not have held up in a rain storm! It was also too small
for our growing group going to US Masters. Our old one may still be OK for places like HOS
just so we have a place to leave our bags.

IN MEMORIUM
SAD NEWS!  Jack Sholl '25, who rowed mixed with us for many years has died in late spring after a very long battle with cancer.  He will be missed by all of us who knew him personally.  Always enthusiastic...willing to sit in whatever boat needed a rower....creating team spirit in all his crews....loved rowing mixed with MI.
His wife Joan was an official at many regattas, including US Masters and annually at FISA Masters. It was always reassuring to hear her calming voice at the starting line.
Here is a good article about Jack in US Rowing
