August 2022: Executive Report, Pittsburgh Masters Rowers Workshop, HOTO!
Executive Director's Report
Dear TRRA Community,
Summer is flying by and we are only weeks away from 2023 Head of the Ohio Regatta! We are excited to be hosting this two day event again and are looking forward to a weekend of great racing here on the Allegheny River.
Starting with the links below, we are building our volunteer core who are essential for the success of HOTO. In the coming weeks we will be activating the “Race Crew” and start to provide special projects and training for volunteers in the lead up to race weekend. Thank you in advance to everyone that volunteers this year - we cannot run this event without YOU!
