News and Upcoming Events
Work + Party THIS Saturday 7/26
Volunteers needed this Saturday from 8AM-Noon at the TRC Boathouse, 8 Main St., Toledo, OH to help prepare for the fall season. We’ll need folks to help prepare communication stations, make dock repairs, and get their team’s bays ready for the busy months ahead. Toledo Rowing Club is a membership organization that relies almost entirely on the generosity of volunteers who repair boats and facilities, help with administrative duties, and other forms of support. We are so thankful to those who regularly or when-they-can offer their services and expertise.
Two St. John’s Rowers Competed- and Succeeded- at Breaking Two World Records
Bailey O’Brien and James Miller of St. John’s Jesuit High School teamed up over the weekend to break a world record of longest continuous time on an erg. The current record is 40 hours, 30 minutes. They were successful in their attempt and also managed to break a second record along the way for most meters rowed in twenty-four hours. Their efforts were certainly for the accomplishment of breaking a world record, but they set about it with the intent to raise money for the Toledo Labre program. You can check out the Toledo Blade article here for more details: http://www.toledoblade.com/local/2014/06/25/2-from-St-John-s-ready-to-row-for-a-record-and-a-good-cause.html
