CHRISTEL HAS TO CANCEL FOR HUNGARY!!!!
Christel will not be able to come to FISA Masters.  She recovered well after her cancer surgery last year. Then in the winter broke her arm and recovered from that. And now she broke her foot walking normally in her home. She does not feel that she would be ready to race in Velence. Also, she thinks she needs to find out why all these breaks are occurring.

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!

Paula has decided that it is time to give up competitive rowing.  We will miss her !
