And – I think the last time one was SO disrupted it wasn’t even the Rowing regatta – it was the Canoe Kayak regatta in Sydney (2000).The two sports share a venue; Rowing is always week one and Canoe/Kayak is week two.Come visit and soak in an art happening that can’t be found anywhere else.The Buffalo News - Jewish Repertory's '4,000 Miles' is a worthwhile journey New York Theatre Guide - Theatre Review: ‘4000 Miles’ at Jewish Repertory Theatre Buffalo Rising - Jewish Rep again presents an intense multi-generational loving conflict with Amy Herzog’s 4,000 MILES The Artie Awards are an annual ceremony honoring Buffalo's actors, designers and directors.
There’s an overall creative vibe running through our historic arts village driven by more than 350 working artists in all mediums. Our 30th annual May Festival of the Arts is packed with one-of-a-kind art exhibits, demonstrations, performances, culinary arts, free music in the park, and the wildest street party thrown by artists – The White Street Walk. Tucked in the mountains, surrounded by lakes, rivers, streams, and natural healing springs, authentic creative spirits run rampant through the village.I believe FISA, the international rowing federation, took a long look at that situation and made a decision to give rowing some flexibility if that were to happen in (their) week one. Now the Olympic Rowing Regatta begins on day 2 – the morning after the Opening Ceremony – and be completed on the Saturday.Rowing used to begin on Sunday – day 3 of the Olympics – and the regatta finished on Sunday with Canoe Kayak beginning the next day. This gives the venue a day to convert from rowing to canoe/kayak, but also it gives FISA a chance to find best conditions.The annual event is also a fundraising benefit, with all proceeds from the evening (along with proceeds from area theatres' sale of Red Ribbons) going to ECMC's Immunodeficiency Services.
Rowers have joked in the past that God must be a rower.I would suppose that as far as FISA and their Fairness Committee are concerned – this week is a nightmare. Athletes have been trying to peak perfectly for a moment in time for years, friends families and fans have spent a lot of money are trying to make sure they’ve the right ticket on the right day, TV networks are trying to juggle how to show everyone everything and FISA needs to figure out how to keep racing fair.
