We lost another MI member! 

BEAT AKLIN '45 SUI, along time mixed MI member


On Oct 25, Beat apparently suffered a heart attack and fell out of his single about 200 meters from shore on Zugersee. They searched until November 15 for his body, without success. Beat was a dedicated and valuable MI member, ready to row in any boat & any seat. His death leaves a  big hole!

John Hooten, Sue's husband, died of a heart attack on March 5 during his row on Lake Natoma. For many years, he was a great support to us at FISA Masters and US Masters. He rowed with us, coxed us and generally helped with whatever chores needed to be done. He was an excellent cartoonist and his rowing jokes were published in the booklet "WHO'S IN BOW", copies of which he gave away free.  John was also a dedicated volunteer in scouting and as a swimming coach.

KARL and ANNELISE, long time fans & supporters

Starting with Bled in 1995, they came to FISA Masters almost every year until Vienna 2009, bringing their caravan to the camping area to support our MI groups with water and food for those who wanted it. They were also our greatest fans in the stands, watching every one of our races. Many of our photos from those days were taken by Karl. They also provided a tent for our use until it finally wore out. The last year we used it was in Scotland.

Karl died on Feb 21.  Annelise has total dementia. Two good friends of MI gone!!!!!
