The Inaugural Cougar Classic hosted by St. John the Baptist Crew will feature twenty different events. In order to participate, all athletes must pay a $25.00 entry fee that allows for unlimited racing, for as many events the athlete is able to row in. Participants will be seeded, based upon erg scores submitted on the entry form, so that each rower will compete against other rowers of comparable abilities. Final results will be amongst all heats in each event. Medals will be awarded to the top five finishers in each event. There will also be a raffle at the event, including a brand new Concept II® ergometer.
