Unfortunately the impression the rowers are making is not a good one. Noise is pollution too and they were out there on both Wednesday and Thursday afternoon with their coaches booming through the bullhorns so they could be heard all over the lake. I even heard the F word. It is impossible to relax with all the shouting going on. The rowers up by the dam never created such a ruckus. There is a story in this, I think. Maybe if they understood the impression they are making - they will modify accordingly. Likewise they made a very impression on one of their first events - cars parked everywhere and blocking access to the boat ramp. . . .
