Lew Cuyler '33  USA  2006 Princeton, 2007, 2008, 2009

Lew died Nov 3 of complications from Alzheimer's, from which he suffered for many years and which kept him from rowing with us

after 2009. He was the founder of Berkshire Rowing and Sculling Society and one of the most enthusiastic masters rowers. 

He was the husband of our past MI women's member Harriet.

MORE SAD NEWS!!!!!!!!  enthusiastic MI member Penelope has died
Penelope (P*) '35  USA (2006-2009)
With a sad heart, Penelope had to give up rowing because of nerve damage in her arm. She was all set to row with us at the 2010 FISA Masters in St. Catharines
It was a shock to hear that P* died on July 16, only 2 months after we talked about her rowing experiences with MI at FISA and US Masters. She also wanted a certain photo of her Camden 4- to incorporate in one of her glass works.

SAD NEWS!!!!!!!  mixed member Charles Eugster has died

Charles Eugster '19  SUI  2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013
He was a staunch MI mixed member until he decided it was time to retire in 2013.
Although he quit competitive rowing, he continued to race short erg pieces and compete at various track and field events.
He died of heart related problems on April 27, 2017.

Lies Muller '34
a former MI member who retired after the 2004 Hamburg FISA Masters,
came to Hazewinkel so see some of her old team mates. She even brought her rowing clothes in case there was a vacant seat!
Only Noralee, Karin, EvaS, and BarbaraB were there. Joey and Felicity did not come to Hazewinkel.
The others from her MI days: AnneL, Monika, Ingrid, Linda, Dora, Jennifer, Jori, Vicki, Marie-France, Margaretha, Nelly, EvaV, Waltraud, Kamila, Mirka, RosiL, and Jacques have either retired or have died.

She would like to join us again for an old quad but is hesitant because
she needs help getting in and out of the boat. Perhaps at the 2016 EuroMasters or 2017 Bled FISA Masters?
2001 EuroMasters:  Karin, Waltraud (dead), EvaV (dead), LIES (retired from racing), HeidiL( retired from racing), EvaS, Felicity, Hanni (retired from racing)
