Parent Letter 5-9-17-Midwest Info





WY-HI Regatta Recap: Well the weather got the best of us.  At least it wasn’t raining.  Most of our races on Saturday were final only events and the regatta was cancelled after 8 of 24 finals were run.  Only two of our boats got to race in finals and both medaled.  The Womens Quad (Rema, Victoria, Duha, & Jenean) took Gold and the Mens Lightweight Eight (Nathan, Reese, Nick, Jordon, Tom, Viktor, Kristian, Moe-Ali, and Mackenzie) took Bronze.  The article about Wy-Hi was just posted on MI Prep Zone: Thanks to all of those who came out and supported us on a cold windy Saturday like Mrs. Kiker, Mrs. Stamps, Mr. & Mrs. Bycraft, Mrs. Friedrich, and Mrs. Janssen.  A huge thanks our Parents Group and Volunteers; Mr. and Mrs. Puhl, Mr. and Mrs. Maktari, and Mr. Gimik, who fed our rowers and coaches during the regatta. Mrs. Helton and Mrs. Coulter helped run the Sew Sporty tent.  I understand Mrs. Manassra helped everywhere from food, to Sew Sporty, to yelling at Mazen (well cheering for him) on the water. Please forgive me if I missed anyone.


Midwest Regatta:  This regatta makes for a very long weekend.  Hopefully I’ve captured all information in the bullet points below:

  • The Basics: We leave on Friday and unload, rig, and practice row on the course. Saturday Heats begin at 7am and Semi-finals last well into the evening.  Finals run Sunday morning.  We will be staying in Hebron, Ohio Friday and Saturday night, which is about 40 minutes from the course.  We will return to Dearborn Heights Sunday afternoon/evening.
  • Traveling there: Thanks for all of those who have volunteered to drive. It is because of your support that we can keep the cost of the season at $400 per kid.  I’ve included the Car Matrix below.
    • Regatta Site: DILLON STATE PARK GPS Address: 5265 Dillon Hills Drive Nashport, OH 43830
    • Hotel: Red Roof Inn 10668 Lancaster RD Southwest Hebron, OH 43025 (740-467-7663)
    • Non-AP Testers: Those NOT testing on Friday Morning will leave from the Crestwood Staff parking lot at 7:30am, make a brief stop for lunch, and proceeded to the race course.
    • AP Testers: Those taking AP Human Geography & AP Micro Economics Exams will leave after the test from the Crestwood Staff lot. They will make a very brief and early in the trip stop for lunch before heading to the race course.
  • Student ID: At this regatta, student ID’s are checked at the dock before launch.
  • USRA Waiver: This year the U.S. Rowing Association has gone to an online wavier. In order to race this weekend the wavier MUST be completed online.
  • As for racing at MSRA: There will be 46 teams and there are 532 entries.  We have 18 boats entered.  Entries are found below the car matrix.  Heats Sheets should be available on Regatta Central sometime this evening or tomorrow morning.
