From the upper deck of the Don Rowlands Centre Lake Karapiro

We are looking out over Lake Karapiro from the top level of the Don Rowlands Events Centre with the finish line for WRCH2010 just a tad to the right out of shot* (the new finish tower is about 15-20 metres off my right shoulder). This photograph was made on Saturday the 3rd of July 2010 the day Waipa District Council invited us out to have a look around our flash new events centre. With three sleeps to go until the 2010 World Rowing Championships this is the view greeting the organising staff if they pause for a moment to take in the view. That’s my dad Bruce Jeans on the right chatting with Waipa District councillor Grahame Webber (Maungatautari Ward Representative)**. The calm before …

*On second thoughts part of it most probably is in shot!

** And new Deputy Mayor of Waipa District! (update 10:25 27/10/2010)
