Summer Extravaganza Schedule Available

The schedule for the Summer Extravaganza is now available for download: Extravaganza 2015-7-28

Results from the regatta will be posted on the Twitter feed: www/Twitter.com/GreenLakeCrew if you don’t have an account, you can view results where posted by the tent where the medals are picked up.

Please note this year for the Summer Extravaganza we had the challenge of having too many crews wanting to race at the regatta. Currently, events are running for nearly 12 hours and that is a FULL day for a regatta. Typically we are always able to accommodate a team’s entry per event. A few times that was not the case and a random draw was made to exclude a team so a race could be added to the schedule.

The goal is to only exclude a team once from all races. Hence if GL were excluded from a race, they would be guaranteed entry in all other races until all teams on the WL (wait list) have also been excluded once already. If that were to occur, the goal changes to exclude a team no more than twice from all races. The excluded team is drawn randomly. We currently have 60 crews on the WL.

We have done our very best to offer as many races as possible, and will need the weather gods to cooperate, along with a bit of luck. Remember the C & C meeting is the morning of at 6:00am at the North end of the parking lot.

Best of luck to all of you!

Lets see if we can come up with a better Masters Handicap system!

We would like to see how good the USRowing handicap equation is. In order to do that we need to know your erg scores if you are over 27. Please visit our info and data collection page for more information. I have setup a blog page to let everyone know my progress on this!
