Member Jen Kaido, has graciously offered to take us out on the water at Eagle Creek Reservoir. I think this would be a tremendous asset and great experience to apply what we have learned on the ergs (rowers) to the real thing. We can only have 16 members join us so unfortunately this is going to be a first come, first serve, sort of thing.
For those who don’t know Jen K. – Here’s her quick Bio. Sorry Jen, but you are kind of a big deal 🙂 Jennifer Kaido (Interim Executive Director/sculling coach/coach of RowIndy Program within Indianapolis Public Schools) – Jennifer started with IRC in September of 2011. She is a four time US National Rowing Team member, 2008 Olympian, and three time World Cup medalist. She started rowing her senior year at Cornell University, fell in love with the sport and decided to continue rowing after graduation at Saugatuck Rowing Club in the OARS Program (Olympic Athletes Rowing at Saugatuck). She learned how to row the single that year, and then moved to Princeton, NJ in the fall of 2004 to train under Tom Terhaar and the US Women’s National Rowing Team. She made the 2005 US Team as a spare, made the 2006 Team as a member in the quad, was in the US double in 2007 and rowed the quad in the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games. Jennifer is from West Leyden, NY, has two younger brothers, and supportive, hard working parents that she contributes her work ethic too.
