Wharton will be holding their annual double elimination 500m erging tournament on Saturday 2/25 at 10 AM at the boathouse, and would like to open the event up to any FRA members who want to compete. They will be adjusting raw times based on weight and age. Each person gets at least 10 minutes of rest between 500m rounds. Prizes will be awarded based on overall champ, 2nd place, 1st place woman, and fastest raw time.
Wharton will be providing food to grill and we ask that FRA members who want to compete contribute 10$.
If you're interested in competing contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with name, age, and fastest 500m time for seeding.
Looking forward to a good competition!
