Well, we couldn't take the crown... but we did wear itl!
Our KING5 Rowing Team didn't exactly surprise anyone by coming in fifth place but at least we looked #1! We should've practiced earlier than two days ago. But we don't take ourselves too seriously!
The Windermere Media Cup is a lot of fun -- teams from all of the stations get together and learn enough about racing to do a couple of heats. The winner gets a $500 check to the charity of their choice!
Five must've been the lucky number because Team KOMO won for the fifth year in a row. Those guys are dedicated!
It was such a great event! Big thanks to all the organizers, coaches, and volunteers. I wish I knew how to row! It was a lot of fun to be on the water on such a beautiful day. And it was awesome to see friends from other stations!
I really enjoyed learning rowing terms and trying to work as a team to get our oars in the water at the same time. It is such a great way to meet people and get exercise in at the same time.
The real Windermere Cup is this weekend to celebrate opening day of boating season. More than 800 rowers will compete in the prestigious event on Lake Washington. I hope I can see it in action!
