To all my followers in the Seattle area, this is for you!
On August 2, the Summer Rowing Extravaganza will be held at Green lake! And I will be there!
Just head to the Small Craft Center( I have pointed it out on the map). It should be easy to find, just look for all the people walking around and the huge trailers carrying boats!
If you want to meet me here’s what you need to know:
-Absolutely, positively, NO PICTURES. I’m sorry, I know you want to preserve the memory of meeting little ol’ me, but I don’t want my face to wind up on the internet somewhere. I’m trying to maintain some privacy here. Thanks.
-I will be wandering around the Small Craft Center from 6 am to 3 pm. SOMETIMES this regatta ends early because of inclement weather. Come early, because that’s when all of the races are guaranteed(and you’ll get better parking too).
-I do not know the race schedule yet. It’s too early to finalize anything, but once I know I will edit this post. If you can’t find me, I’m probably on the water.
-Above I’ve put a picture of what I probably will wear. If I get wet I’m likely to change my clothes. I’ve dyed parts of my hair red, look for that, and I’ll try to make myself as available and visible as possible.
-I’ve also included some maps of Green lake with an approximation of where the race course is. You get a great view down by the Small Craft Center of the finish line, but around the lake(by Duck Island and the theatre) you also get a good view.
-This should be obvious, but I row for Green lake. Look for the green, blue and white to find our team.
-CODE WORD: SHORTCAKE
If you see a person and you think it might be me, blurt that out. If it’s me, hooray, you found me, and I will respond. If not, that person will probably assume you just want some shortcake and may direct you to Zoe’s Frozen Yoghurt or something.
- I’ve included the code word for this reason: DO NOT APPROACH THE ATHLETES. If you start nosing around the teams you will look suspicious and may be escorted off the premises, or even arrested. Like I said, I will make myself as available as possible.
- For added security, you can message me on tumblr and ask for my Kik. I’ll have my phone with me all day. If you show up to the Small Craft Center and can’t find me, message me and hopefully I will respond. If I don’t, I’m probably rowing at that time.
If you find me you are welcome to have a hug. Let me know your url so I can identify you. And maybe I can sketch you a thing. See you there!
