On my walk around Marina Stadium in Long Beach this morning I noticed all of the boats and people there.  We I talked to John, one of the guys holding a flag, he told me that this was the largest rowing competition in North America.  People are there from all over the United States and some from around the World.  It looks like it could be a lot of fun.  For more information you can go to my Website www.PatHaleOnLine.com and go to the Long Beach Links.  It shows all the events scheduled for Long Beach until the end of the year.
