To say that Eureka Springs is a colorful community is an understatement.There’s an overall creative vibe running through our historic arts village driven by more than 350 working artists in all mediums. Our 30th annual May Festival of the Arts is packed with one-of-a-kind art exhibits, demonstrations, performances, culinary arts, free music in the park, and the wildest street party thrown by artists – The White Street Walk. Tucked in the mountains, surrounded by lakes, rivers, streams, and natural healing springs, authentic creative spirits run rampant through the village.The annual event is also a fundraising benefit, with all proceeds from the evening (along with proceeds from area theatres' sale of Red Ribbons) going to ECMC's Immunodeficiency Services.
More often than not, Olympic Rowing conditions have been consistently excellent.
There have been short delays here or there but it’s been a long time since an Olympic regatta has been so wind effected.
I believe FISA, the international rowing federation, took a long look at that situation and made a decision to give rowing some flexibility if that were to happen in (their) week one. Now the Olympic Rowing Regatta begins on day 2 – the morning after the Opening Ceremony – and be completed on the Saturday.
Rowing used to begin on Sunday – day 3 of the Olympics – and the regatta finished on Sunday with Canoe Kayak beginning the next day. This gives the venue a day to convert from rowing to canoe/kayak, but also it gives FISA a chance to find best conditions.
And – I think the last time one was SO disrupted it wasn’t even the Rowing regatta – it was the Canoe Kayak regatta in Sydney (2000).
The two sports share a venue; Rowing is always week one and Canoe/Kayak is week two.
