TCU Rowers and FWRC took part in the ROW HO HO along with rowers from Dallas and England. Everyone was in a festive mood with lots of great Christmas Costumes and Fun Races in 8+s. The weather was perfect, especially for early December. Winners of the costume contest were: 1st- Ashley FWRC/TCU, 2nd- Cassie FWRC, 3rd- Sarah. We also collected toys for the SafeHaven Domestic Violence Shelter.
The first out to races were the women Crews. They did several Sprint Races as well as a 25 stroke distance race. The 360 turning race and the backing races added a unique technical element to the competition that most regattas don’t have.
Here is the victorious crews showing off their prizes.
The Men were next out on the water. The crews did really well however the Reindeer Crew came out ahead.
Thanks to all those that organized the event. A special thanks to Faith and Sam that coxed all the races. ROW FROGS!!
