Badgers Rowing - Part II

Recommended Posts

These are of the rowing facility at Wisconsin that go with the Part I post.

#1 Lake side shot of the boathouse. 5 rowing bays with one repair bay. Three story building with offices, rowing river, work out facilities and boat storage. Almost a 9 million dollar facility. It is regarded by many as the finest boat house in the US.

#2 Oar storage. As mentioned in my other post they are color coded for boat position.

#3 One boat bay showing pairs and fours boats. They have around 100 boats!

#5 Seat and track along with rowing shoes.

#6 Indoor rowing tanks. One for port-side and one for starboard-side. The water is adjustable in speed to allow for different stroke speeds. You have to row with moving water or the resistance would be to great against the oars.

#7 The main lobby to the boat house.

Great series, Dan! Few people realize the dedication it takes for even a "small" sport. Kudos to your daughter! Too bad about the outcome in the battle for Paul Bunyan's Axe!

Another very cool series. I had no idea that the Wisconsin program was that old. Their facilities look incredible. Do you have any idea how their facilities in Wisconsin compare to the facilities for the olympics?

Thanks Ken, you know all about the dedication required to play collegiate sports! I'm a UND graduate but am a fan of most Gopher sports (except hockey) I really didn't cheer for either team! I was mister Switzerland! The first half looked like a Gopher blowout but the second half was entertaining! So much for hoping to get out of that cold stadium early!

Almost all of the coaches at Wisconsin are or were Olympic rowers and they say this one is among the best along with the Princeton Rowing center. The US Rowing Assoc. is opening a new state of the art facility in Oklahoma City to train Olympic athletes this spring, that will also be at the top.

Very interesting, I have only watched on tv, after your two posts I now know a little about it.

Thanks

Dan

    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!
