Some exciting news for the 2016 rowing season!

Including Rowing PEI’s first sanctioned regatta featuring flat water and coastal rowing!
But first….here are a few upcoming events.

1. Here are a couple of easy ways you can support our Canada Games training team!
a. TOMORROW!!! Here’s a tasty way to support the Canada Games Rowing Training Team! Come out to Boston Pizza on Wednesday February 10th between 5:00 and 8:00 p.m. Our rowers will be there to greet and help serve you. They will collect all tips and a percentage of the sales. Please SHARE! This is a great way to support their efforts.
b. You can also help the PEI Canada Games Training team by dropping off your bottles and cans for recyling to Aubrey’s, 29 Garfield Street! They’re open Monday to Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Just say that you want to donate your refund. You have to go into the office to sign our donation sheet. Thanks.
c. Ergathon continues. We will have a wrap up event of indoor rowing that everyone can be part of. Stay tuned for details.
