Hello Friends, Alumni, Family, Coaches and Regatta administrators.

The Lubbers Cup Regatta has been cancelled this year.

This was a very hard decision to make, but we wanted to make it before everyone got on the road. In fact, Minnesota was a third of the way here and turned back.

The main issue is we’re expecting gusts up to 40 miles an hour. That makes any body of water unrowable. On top of that were also expecting a cold hard rain and with the temperature now dropping into the 30s as a high and not enough shelter on land for everyone it is now a slam dunk.

Thanks so much to all that helped organize this event. The Chamber will reimburse any team registration and deposits upon requests.

We’re doing the right thing. Again, the Regatta is cancelled and I apologize for not being able to host it this year.
