I’ve installed a calendar on the website. For now it just shows the current Masters and LTR events.

"In the summer of 1936, nine working class young men from the University of Washington took the rowing world and the nation by a storm when they captured the gold medal at the Olympic Games in Berlin. These sons of loggers, shipyard workers and farmers overcame tremendous hardships -- psychological, physical and economic -- to beat not only the Ivy League teams of the East Coast but also Adolf Hitler's elite German rowers. Their unexpected victory, and the obstacles they overcame to achieve it gave hope to a nation struggling to emerge from the depths of the Great Depression." This is a FREE Advanced Screening of American Experience: The Boys of '36, a one hour documentary inspired by Daniel James Brown's, The Boys in the Boat. It airs on August 2 at 8 PM on KSPS (check listing for your local PBS affiliiate).
