Ms. Samantha Byrd, chair of Potomac Boat Club’s Regatta Committee, announces that registration is open for the 2012 Charlie Butt Annual Scullers Head of the Potomac (SHOP).
The SHOP, scheduled for Sunday, September 30, has been held every year for the last 32 years in honor of legendary rowing coach Charlie Butt. Considered an important milestone on the fall racing calendar, the SHOP includes more than 40 sweep and sculling events with crews coming from all over North America and the world.
Last year, the PBC Regatta Committee has reworked the race schedule to better accommodate large entry events and provide more time between events for multi-entry participants. Please check the registration page linked above for important registration deadlines. SHOP Race Headquarters will be at Thompsons Boat Center.
A new dedicated SHOP site with registration info, waivers and other information is also coming soon!
Questions regarding the SHOP should be emailed to the Regatta Committee’s new SHOP co-chair, Peter Clements, at [email protected]. Volunteers, it’s never too early to make your availability known!
The Regatta Committee wishes you the best of luck as you finish up the summer racing season.
See you in September at the SHOP!
