St. Joe's Rowers owe a gigantic thank-you to Mr. McGarry (Sarah's dad) who on behalf of Barrie Police donated $250 towards the purchase of a TENT for rowers. We also owe thanks to Sarah McKinnon for raising money for the tent.

St. Joe's Rowers also owe a huge thanks to Mr. & Mrs. Benoit and PlumbTech who donated $250 to pay for the truck rental (to tow boats) to the Schoolboy Regatta. Mr. & Mrs. Benoit -- you are awesome.


June 14, 2008 - Mr. Feher and Mr. Szerminski rowing a double on the Severn River at the home and new rowing club of former BRC coaches Mike Smith and Dianne Barr. Their technique was far from perfect, but not that bad considering it was Mr. Feher's first time sculling and Mr. Szerminski has not rowed himself for about 15 years. Thanks Mike and Dianne for the opportunity and we'll visit you again soon.

Link to videos from Schoolboy -- this is raw unedited footage that will be edited down and shown to grade 9s next year to inspire them to sign up for rowing.

Link to full album of pictures from Mr. Szerminski's camera (scaled to 1.1 megapixels):

Sarah McKinnon & Kelsey Smith head out in their double. Thank-you girls for several years of dedication to the program.


Jordan Chew and Dave Angus head out in the Pair. The boys qualified for the semi-final on Saturday but did not make it to the final.  Dave is graduating this year but Jordan will return for a couple more years.


Hailey Vidler prepares to launch her crew.


The coxie is smiling but the boys are pretty focused on the task at hand. Along with coach Mike Gardiner is coach Sterling Sonego -- a St. Joe's alumni rower.


Mens' Four rowing back to the dock after their race. They raced well but were not fast enough to qualify. I don't mean to keep putting pictures up of the same crew -- but I was video-recording most of the time and actually took very few photos. The video will be shown next year to grade 9s and 10s to promote rowing to kids entering St. Joe's.


It takes a lot to run a rowing program. Shown here are the St. Joe's coaches involved.


Mr. Szerminski with another alumni rower -- Peter Webb. Note the snazzi new hats.


Hanging out in Port Dalhousie between races.


While most of the rowers went to be terrified in one of the famous Clifton Hill haunted houses, some of the adults and coxie Erin went to check out the great Niagara.
