Celebrating Emily Cameron!

emily boat

Thank you to everyone who was part of our celebration for Emily Cameron, the rower, and Emily Cameron – the boat!

We are so pleased to name our new racing quad in honour of Emily, with many thanks to her parents, Scott and Susan Cameron, who made a $5,000 donation towards the purchase.

We had many other generous donations at our celebration, to raise more than $4,000 on the evening.

.  emjily celebr 3 emily celebr 1 emily celebr 2 emily celebr 4 emily ch 1 emily ch 2 emily christens the boat

Watch the video here: emily champage video

And a special thank you to Andrew Jago and the team at Hudson.  A midweight quad is a very sought-after boat in Canada. Not only did they find one for us, they also sold it to us a reduced price that was within our fundraising budget.  We are proud to have this quad as part of our Rowing P.E.I. fleet.

A warm thanks to Fred Hyndman for his wonderful support. More on that to come!  Fred comes from a family steeped in P.E.I. rowing history

We also want to thank Gord Henry from Fluid – who is loaning us a heavyweight double for the next two years.  Gord was born in Summerside, P.E.I. though his family didn’t live there for long.  He is still a great supporter of Prince Edward Island and we hope he will visit us this summer.  By the way, Gord rowed for Canada at the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul and made history as the only Canadian male to row in both sculling and sweep competitions.  We will have to ask him more about that when he visits!

And last, but not least, thank you to Chris Williams who is loaning us two Van Dusen singles for our training team to use. Also very generous.

As we said at the christening ceremony – it takes a village to raise a rowing club. We at Rowing P.E.I. thank you all.

Nancy Russell – on behalf of the board of Rowing P.E.I. and the Canada Games training team

Many thanks to crew at The Lost Anchor in Cavendish!

The Canada Games training team had a fantastic lobster supper fundraiser on Father’s Day, Sunday June 19th – and we have many people to thank.

Biggest thanks to Miranda Ellis and Jamie Newson (and Kaleigh Peters!) for offering to organize this fundraiser! It was a ton of work just as they were about to open for the season. We really appreciate the opportunity. And we hope that our Rowing P.E.I. members and families will drop in to The Lost Anchor this summer to show our support for their wonderful restaurant.

lob 8 lost anchor

It’s The Lost Anchor Pub & Galley, at the corner of Routes 6 and 13, called Cavendish Corner.  You turn as if you were going towards Cavendish Beach and it’s on the right, behind the Dirt Shirt store.

Other thanks:
Eric C. Robinson Inc.
Covehead Rover
MR Seafood
Cathy MacAusland

Also, many thanks to the volunteers who peeled and chopped potatoes, put together the lobster suppers and handed them out.  I don’t have pictures of everyone but here are a few.

Thanks again!

Thanks to the intrepid Chris Williams who made the trek from Halifax to Charlottetown in the driving snow, including crossing the Confederation Bridge with two boats strapped on top of his car!
Chris is a former high performance coach in Nova Scotia who is graciously lending us two racing singles for our Canada Games training team. They are Van Dusens – and will be put to good use by our youth competitors.
A big thank you as well to Lea and Russ Bryden who told Chris about our plight (losing most of our racing boats in the barn collapse) and helped make the connection with Rowing P.E.I.
We still have a lot of fundraising to do, but this is a big step forward in our ability to prepare our athletes for the 2017 Canada Summer Games.

Thanks Chris!!
