Rower P(row)file: Meet Colette Shelly

Colette is part of the tough few who made it through LTR January 2017— one of the wettest winters we’ve had. A year into rowing, Colette is an avid competitor on the club team, and somehow manages to go see live music shows late at night and show up bright and early at 5:20 a.m. We might have to try her snack of choice. 


Rower P(row)file: Don Asher

At EBRC, we have several rowing families. Don Asher, (Men’s Competitive Team) is a regular fixture at the club with his wife Susie and son, Miles. Don and his family not only row together; Don and Susie run a company together–remember those awesome looking  programs at our 2017 fundraiser? Find out Don’s favorite erg piece, power snack, and about clashing oars with Marin.
