THANK YOU to our host: The Austin Rowing Club at Waller Creek Boathouse
Yes, it was a little chilly but the warmth from all the smiles and excitement was plentiful as 120 rowers from all over Texas converged on to the apron of The Austin Rowing Club to see and get a chance to row the Stampfli Express on January 2, 2016.
She was 144 feet in length and weighed just a tad bit over 900 pounds when fully assembled. Many thanks to Congress Avenue Kayaks and the folks who helped move the extra docks into place so she had a place to launch from.
PULLING FOR PINK is extremely grateful for all of the support and attention given by our local media and news. It isn't every day that the world's largest rowing boat is in town and of course, having such a great cause to support made it even that much more important:

DRONE: (Yes, we had a DRONE!!)
We had a total of five different flights at a cost of $25 per seat and proceeds were donated to the charity for PULLING FOR PINK - The Breast Cancer Resource Center.
