Alumni Win Some, Lose Some
April 22, 2006: Case Crew hosted an Alumni Regatta
on the Cuyahoga with alumni coming from near and far to participate. Alumni crews were ultimately 3 for 7 in
a round robin racing format.

The weather turned out to be beautiful allowing people to enjoy the racing and reconnect after years of being away
from the team. Alumni showed their support by donating over $4,000 to SARA for the purchase of some Nielsen-Kellerman
rowing electronics and a new regatta tent. The team directly raised nearly $500 on the day
from a raffle for naming rights to an oar and for some Case Crew gear.
The festivities continued on into the evening at the
Great Lakes Brewery.
