Take pride in Head of the Pend Oreille

Print Article

On September 29th, Priest River held the second annual Head of the Pend Oreille Regatta.  This is the only Regatta in the State of Idaho.  There were 2 universities, 1 high school and several master rowing club crews who participated.  This included a club from Nelson BC.  Many of the people who entered the Regatta made their second visit to Priest River and arrived early to be at the Friday BBQ/row-by.  The conditions were perfect, which insured great memories for all.   Priest River can take pride in the Head of the Pend Oreille Regatta weekend  

The Priest River Yacht Club hosted the event and its members put in tireless hours to ensure the event was successful.   I would like to give special thanks to my wonderful committee:  Linda Andis, Rusty Pavey, Gail Johnson and Todd Sudick for a job well done.

However, this truly is a community project.  The Priest River Yacht Club Regatta Committee would like to recognize all who participated in making this event such a wonderful success.
