Congratulations and thanks to the many athletes who came from far and wide to compete at the 2013 Charlie Butt Annual Scullers Head of the Potomac (SHOP)!
On Sunday, September 29, 2013, race fans and casual onlookers got a glimpse of novice, junior, collegiate, elite and master category athletes giving their all down the Potomac on one of the most beautiful days in the regatta’s 33-year history.
With approximately 350 entries in events ranging from singles to eights, the regatta was an amazing tribute to legendary coach Charlie Butt’s ongoing legacy at PBC and his contributions to U.S. rowing.
We look forward to seeing you all next year!
We had two professional photographers at the regatta this year!
The members of the Regatta Committee, who organized this year’s event, include the following:
Along with the extremely hard work of the committee, the club would be unable to hold this annual event without our dedicated SHOP volunteers. This year, more than one hundred of you gave of your time and lent us your many talents to ensure the 2013 SHOP was a huge success.
So, in addition to the patient, helpful staff of Thompsons Boat Center (TBC) and our fellow clubs, we would like to give a huge shout out to the following race day volunteers (and anyone we missed!), who continue to make the SHOP possible … in no particular order:
Will & Adam Packard
