Come See Live Rowing Saturday April 5 at Overpeck Lake, NJ

For any readers in the NY/NJ area who want to come see what live rowing is like, there is a collegiate regatta (2,000 meters) on Saturday April 5 at Overpeck County Park, which is just over the George Washington Bridge from NYC.  Dartmouth, Columbia, MIT, Holy Cross, and Navy will be racing in eights throughout the day from 9AM to 2PM.  Overpeck is a great venue for a run or BBQ and has a great playground for the kids.  The publicly-accessible viewing area is along the last 1,000 meters of the racecourse, culminating at the finish line at the north end of the lake.  If you are an alum, come out and support your school.  If you are a CrossFitter and want to see what the sport looks like on the water, this is the best chance to see it all year.
