Run of the Charles

A number of older and younger CSUers took part in today's Run of the Charles.  The Quinobequin Canoe Club, with CSU masters Wes Denering, Bob Burnham, Andy Milne, Jamie Doucett and Rob Bradlee came home victorious on a beautiful spring day for the 10th year in a row over our big rival, the MassLakes Snoopers.  The big rainstorm a week ago put enough water into the river to make for some good paddling and brought the river level up from 1 to 2 feet, depending on where on the river you measured. 

Coming in 3rd overall and 1st in the mixed male/female category was the CSU Jr/Harvard Ski Team boat with CSUers Jim Stock, Chris Stock, Corey Stock, Eli Hoenig, Nick Reitman, Zoe Snow and Julia Kern.
