Paddlers Needed for UHD's Buffalo Bayou Regatta Teams

By: Mary Ann Cozza

We need you! UHD is co-sponsoring the upcoming 40th Annual Buffalo Bayou Regatta from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, March 10. This 15-mile paddling experience from San Felipe and Voss to downtown's Sesquicentennial Park is a great way to see the city, get some exercise and support UHD.

Captains Karen Alfaro and Spencer Lightsy still need paddlers to man UHD's boats. If you're interested, please contact Mary Ann Cozza, public affairs, at cozzam@uhd.edu to sign up. No experience is necessary, as the Buffalo Bayou Partnership is planning to host a training session before the Regatta.

Also, spectators, friends, families and supporters are all welcome to visit the finish line at Sesquicentennial Park to enjoy events like live music, kids activities and the awards ceremony. Food and drink will also be available. Free UHD t-shirts will also be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

See you at the Regatta!
