Well here we are 24 hours later. I write to you now because it will be difficult for me to say things on Wednesday night. It has been a great year on the river in so many ways. We won some races and the boys did a great job in Sarasota, but more importantly, they grew as young men. It was wonderful to see them make the commitment to the sport and to each other.

We had seniors who have set a great example and who have established the culture of the program....
