Team USA Lunenburg 13
It was a disappointing finish to 2013 International season in late August when 4 teams (no Women’s Team) made the trek to Lunenburg, NS to face the Canadians on their home turf (or water). All the American teams were defeated but a great effort was put forth by all teams to make the trip and compete in the 61st annual International Races. Some highlights on the trip included our new junior team of Kyle Edmonds & Thomas Beaton who rowed their first race with a steady stroke and an excellent course, then sang with Garnet Heisler later in the evening. Team Krazy’s Mike Frontiera rowed two races with great navigation but not quite enough speed to beat the Canadians with his Viking partner Elin DiAngelo in the mixed doubles and Billy Edmonds in the Over 40. And, the last minute substitute team of Glenn Harrington & Erik Dombrowski lost to the June International Champs Joel George & Markus Schmidt.
Mark your calendar for these upcoming race dates:
This Saturday, September 15th, Gloucester Gig Harbor Row, Registration starts at 8AM Niles Beach
Sunday, September 29th, IDRC Oarmaster’s Cup Solo Dory Race, 10AM Maritime Gloucester Pier (tentative location)

The Taste of Cape Ann Call to Action for Restaurants and Foodies
The most delicious fundraiser of the year is nearly here – it’s time to get your restaurant registered or your event ticket ordered.
The Cape Ann YMCA’s 5th Annual “Taste of Cape Ann” returns to Cruiseport Gloucester on Thursday, October 3, 2013 from 6-9PM. The event features the best of Cape Ann eateries offering food, wine and spirits for one $25 ticket price with the proceeds of ticket sales going to support Cape Ann YMCA Teen Service Trips to New Orleans, Navajo Nation and Nicaragua.
The service trips empower local youth to spend a week working in communities hit by environmental and economic devastation. Teens participate in learning modules before and after traveling on school break to offer hands-on aid in areas of great need. The New Orleans Mission, now in its 4th year, originated as a Cape Ann trip but has generated enough interest to cause its expansion to include youth throughout the North Shore YMCA system two years ago and prompted the addition of the Nicaragua trip in 2013, and the Navajo Nation trip in 2014.
Taste of Cape Ann ticket prices have been lowered to $25 this year (from the original $40 of past years) to invite more local folks to come out, celebrate and enjoy an evening of food, wine and spirits in support of these powerful youth opportunities. The participating restaurant and spirits vendors list is expanding with the boom in new restaurants opening on Cape Ann and the event is expected to fill fast – both for restaurant slots and ticket sales.
Taste of Cape Ann is:
A great place to showcase your business in front of people who’ll be dining local all winter
A great PR opportunity – your business in the spotlight helping your community and those beyond
A great place for locals to sample food and drink from their Cape Ann food choices
A great reason to get out and support kids doing good
RESTAURANT INFO – Here’s who’s committed to participating so far:

Restaurants wishing to participate should contact Jennifer Amero at JameroMarketingSuite@gmail.com . There is no vendor fee. We ask only that you read and sign the logistics/registration form, plan to bring enough food for 250 guests to have a small sampling of your best buzz-worthy offering and that you come prepared to hand out menus and advertising information and anything you want to get in front of local diners. To that end, restaurateurs should plan on staying through the event or sending a sociable representative from their venue to help in a great PR opportunity for a great cause.
