Championship Trophy - Kuperman Cup

Many of you know that in 2008 LPBC mourned the loss of our longtime friend and coach, Yuriy Kuperman.  Over 10 years, Yuriy was a fixture of our club and of competitive rowing throughout the country.  His distinction as a coach is demonstrated by the success achieved by his scullers at many local, national and international regattas.  To reward excellence in sculling at the Chicago Sprints Regatta in Yuriy's honor, we will be presenting the Kuperman Cup to the club that achieves the most success in sculling events.  The points awarded in each sculling event are as follows:

1x:  1st Place: 12

       2nd Place: 10

       3rd Place:  8

       4th Place:  6

2x:   1st Place:  18

        2nd Place: 15

        3rd Place: 12

        4th Place:  9

4x:  1st Place:  22

       2nd Place: 18

       3rd Place:  14

       4th Place:  10

This trophy was made possible through the generosity of LPBC club members in memory of their friend and coach, Yuriy Kuperman.
