Rowing Becomes a Key Venue at SmorgaSport 2014

Friday, 5. September 2014


CSULB Associated Students (ASI) kicked off another year with the annual “Week of Welcome” activities. More than 300 student clubs and organizations call CSULB home, and that number alone can be daunting for new students trying to figure out where they fit in.

ASI makes the choice a little easier by inviting these clubs and organizations to come out and introduce themselves to new and returning students. This year, get involved by visiting Week of Welcome ’14.

On Friday, September 5th from 8 p.m. to 12 a.m., Beach Crew hosted the annual SmorgaSport Regatta using the RowPro simulator on a big screen and eight Concept2 ergometers. In years past, Beach Crew has stolen crowds from around the event over to what looks like a game, but in reality, they get hooked on rowing. The rest is history! Someone’s rowing career could start that night. The SmorgaSport Regatta has become a key venue at the event.

Novice rowers start on Monday, September, 8 at 5:30 AM.

More information regarding ASI’s Week of Welcome can be found here.
