March roared in like a lion and out like a lamb for DSC. After pioneering a two-night Sample Sculling class in February, Dale Mizuno, Clare Hanley and Tom Tillotson all kept their momentum by completing Sculling Level I on March 21st, the first such class in DSC history. Hot on their heels was a second group of Sample Sculling grads in early March, Anne Dowling, Monika Levy, Sue Lavieri and Theresa Chinchiolo. Their enthusiasm for their new-found sport was so great that instead of waiting to run the next Level I class in May, as originally planned, DSC created a Sunday morning Level I—and graduation day for the 2nd group was March 30th. All seven grads truly appreciate the beauty, grace and cognitive and physical demands of sculling and have decided to take Level II, which will help them refine the basics they gained in March. In fact, some committed to using DSC’s facilities for a year to erg weekly, which will augment their Level II (and beyond) experiences. In that way their sculling will benefit from on-going fitness and technique work on the erg, which will allow them to push boats further and faster during their Level II lessons. Many thanks to all the wonderful experienced scullers who assisted our newest scullers: Carol Coddington, Linda Acton, Susan Ollis, Lisa Rodrigues, Bob Lee, Angela Ferrarese and Kari Jones.
