“Head of the South” Augusta Georgia

Regattas are exciting, colorful and fun.  We enjoyed attending Kim and Marc’s meets when they were at KSU.  Now, we have the exciting opportunity to see Aaron and Adam row for Triange Rowing Club based here in the Cary, Raleigh area.
The trip to Augusta was uneventful other than once again encountering a massive traffic jam in Nashville.  (We have bad traffic luck in that city).  I worried about Atlanta, but with seven lanes and hitting it at nonpeak time, we sailed right through.
The regatta was Saturday but we arrived at the site on Friday late afternoon. We rode our bicycles around the area taking in all the activities.  Teams and boats were streaming in.  Amazingly, we found the boys.
The location was not on the Savannah River itself, but a side canel.  
After asking around, no one seemed to care if we just stayed where we were parked behind the dike.  So, we just closed the curtains and spent the night.
Kim, Marc and Evan found us early the next morning and we set up our little part of the hill side for the day.  I’ve posted a slideshow of pictures taken during the day.  As usual, click on this link  then on the upper right hand arrow for a full screen slide show of the pictures. 
By the way, the boys placed fifth out of 15 entries of Novice eight.  Of course, they would of liked to place higher, but felt good about how their race went.
