Event description

Description

Behold the First Annual Princeton Rowing Alumni Feats & Feast -- a courageous effort to recreate the co-misery and camaraderie of our rowing days, without the humiliation of getting back in a boat.

This (hopefully) annual event will allow Princeton Rowing Alumni to reunite and compete (or just participate) in our favorite land-based endurance sports, and afterwards engage in a tabloid-worthy banquet.

After careless planning and limited discussion, we've decided the events will consist of a trail run (or hike) on the notorious Dipsea Trail to Stinson Beach. There we will enjoy lunch, cool breezes and ocean views. Just when you're nodding off in the sand, we'll wake you to bike the georgeous Mt. Tam Hill Climb back over the mountain to civilization.

The agro amongst us will compete via Strava for the fastest segments. Meanwhile, everyone else can enjoy the ride and good conversation safely below their anaerobic threshold. It will be a tough day for those who run and cycle, but transportation will be provided for those who wish to participate in only one event (those vehicles will also stage riders' bikes and gear at Stinson).

We will be providing details on locations, bike rentals, etc. in coming weeks. For now, it's most important that we get a headcount so that we can plan a great weekend. Please register now! Supplies are limited and this amazing offer won't last long!

Look pricy? We've padded the fees to make sure we don't fall short. But we are also handling some complex logistics getting bikes to Stinson Beach, etc. And Saturday's dinner will be the real deal, not DFS/PUDS. Any excess will be donated to the PURA.

For very recent grads (say <3 years out) or those who have chosen altruistic careers, we'll provide a discount to what makes them comfortable. They can email donfornes@gmail.com, but just not from an "@gs.com" address. :')

Heavyweights, lightweights, men and women -- all are welcome. Spouses are encouraged to attend and participate.

Want to help? Got questions? Need Wine Country ideas to help convince your spouse? Email donfornes@gmail.com or call (415) 516-1769.

Jon Lawson '99 has generously prepared a list of local hotels, along with their proximity to In-and-Out Burger. In some cases, Jon may have negotiated block discounts, so be sure to ask the reservationist.

Special thanks to Josh Steinman '96 (Dipsea Chair & Earl of Sandwiches), Bob Hall '96 (Disaster of Ceremonies), Jon Lawson '99 (Lodging Chair). More leadership positions available on request...
