It is with great pleasure to announce the USRowing Board of Directors has just announced the 2012 Medal of Honor has been awarded to Stan Pocock. As you are aware, this is the highest honor USRowing can bestow. It is given in recognition to a member of the rowing community in the United States who has rendered conspicuous service or accomplished extraordinary feats involving the sport of rowing. Stan has certainly been involved in all phases of rowing….from shell construction, rowing history, with a life long dedication to coaching….to the very successful Pocock Foundation and resulting Pocock Rowing Center that now serves and promotes the many athletes involved in this sport. He has been a mentor to many with his wisdom and recommendations. Accordingly, a Christmas acknowledgment dinner will be held at the Seattle Yacht Club on Friday, November 30th…so please reserve that date. Additional details will follow.Congratulations, Stan! From the Pacific Northwest rowing community.
Martha’s Moms, current members and retired, celebrated their illustrious 28 year rowing legacy at Lakeside School’s new boathouse…. the site from whence the club sprang.
