Team Crawford wins second QC Corporate Rowing CupAugust 12, 2010
"It is absolutely amazing to see eight new rowers learn all the tasks required to row as one unit. Learning to row is both mental and physical, however the real challenge is to work as a team. I can't think of a better way to bring people to our greatest natural asset, the Mississippi River. Corporations are the life blood of our community and to see them compete on the river is tremendous," said Terry Cahill, Crawford Company.
The Corporate Learn to Row experience provides a unique team-building opportunity. Each individual participant is vital to the direction of the team and the balance of the boat. Ultimately, success is achieved through teamwork and patience. Rowing can be done by virtually anyone regardless of age or fitness level.
