Rowing fever in Parrish

Rowing fever has apparently caught on in Parrish.

Ben Jordan, president of the Parrish Civic Association, says there's been great interest in the formation of a masters rowing team that would train at the nearby Fort Hamer Park and compete at the new rowing Nathan Benderson Park rowing facility down off University Parkway at Interstate 75.

"A lot of people are excited," said Jordan - so much so that the Y had to order new rowing machines and station them upstairs in what used to be just the teen room.

Sounds like the news of the 2017 World Rowing Championship coming to Manatee-Sarasota has some folks fired up.
