The Manitoba Rowing Association is proud to announce a recent partnership with Red River Coop Winnipeg for the purchase of a new Hudson double boat for the high-performance stream of athletic development in Manitoba. Red River Co-op’s Community Relations Committee has provided a grant to the Manitoba Rowing Association for this new piece of equipment for amateur athletes in Manitoba. Red River Coop’s commitment to local community has allowed the athletes in Manitoba to train on some of the best equipment in our country, allowing them to strive further for their goals for the national and international stage.

To officially thank Red River Coop for their commitment to rowing and amateur sport in Manitoba, we will be having a ceremony to name the boat.

Tuesday, September 9, 2014 at 10am
Location: Winnipeg Rowing Club, 20 Lyndale Drive, Winnipeg, Manitoba.

The boat will be at the boathouse for the official christening of the boat. The Manitoba Rowing Association President, Board members from the Red River Co-op Community Relations Committee and amateur athletes from the Manitoba Rowing Association will all be on hand for interview.
