Didn’t get a pic of the Jack Graham but here’s a couple of pic of ARC Club President Elisabeth Gardner christening the new Sykes quad this past Saturday. Elisabeth has worked tirelessly to ensure the future of ARC, hitting city hall almost daily and using all of what free time she used to have for ARC. Congratulations!
Soon to follow, a recap on the highly successful Waller Creek clean-up as well as the Free Learn to Row day for volunteers organized by Membership Director Jack Graham.

The biggest new lately is that the Austin Rowing Club has been invited to participate in Austin’s First Night! Here’s more from ARC Club President, Elisabeth Gardner:
Some of you may have heard this already, but ARC has been invited to participate in First Night! In case you don’t know what that is, First Night is a family-friendly celebration downtown on New Year’s Eve. There are lots of art exhibits, a unique and awesome parade, and of course, fireworks. This year they are adding a few new elements: a “Resolution 5K” at 10pm, parties at the Long Center, and a “Waterlight Parade” by the Austin Rowing Club! First Night Austin is typically attended by about 100,000 people!! Our part will be from 9pm-10pm along Auditorium Shores. We have been working on the outfits for the boats and rowers and now I need to get an official headcount.
Please email me if you are willing and able to be a part of this exciting and fun event! We need all types of rowers – scullers, teamboats, etc. You can expect to commit about 2 1/2 hrs New Year’s Eve (8pm-10:30pm) and you will be done in time to make any New Year’s parties or stay for the fireworks downtown!
Here’s a clip about First Night from Fox7.
