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.
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.
Martha had planned on racing at US Masters, Oak Ridge.
Louise and Cori are now coming to race in her memory.


Joey Peter '47, cox, NY died on Nov 3 from lung cancer. As of March, he was still planning to come to US Masters and FISA Masters. He coxed us since 2004, mostly at FISA Masters. His last FISA with us was in Varese but then he got very busy coxing his other crews and we were able to fill his place with other coxswains

Chinook moved into a physical location in San Diego in November, and has a small group of 16 athletes that train there, live within 50 miles of the location, and made up the crew in the Club event at the 2016 US MastersIt remains to be seen how many more of their rowers will "move" to San Diego so that they can also enter Club events!

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.
