    The Cohasset Lacrosse Boosters is dedicated to promoting the sport of lacrosse for boys and girls participating in the Cohasset Youth Lacrosse program and on the Cohasset Middle/High School lacrosse teams. We aspire to be an organization providing a high quality experience for every child, rooted in a culture striving for the highest personal integrity and physical fitness. Our core values include:

  • The Hull Life Saving Museum's 32nd Annual Snow Row is 3/12/2011

    Posted Under: General Area in Hull, Parks & Recreation in Hull, In My Neighborhood in Hull  |  January 21, 2011 4:38 AM  |  975 views  |  No comments

    What: 32st Annual Snow Row 

    When: Saturday, March 12, 2011

    Race Start: 12 Noon

    Coxswain’s Meeting: 11:30 AM

    Location: Windmill Point Boathouse, 185 Main Street, Hull, MA

    Fee: $20 racers; Spectators free

     

    The Hull Life Saving Museum’s signature-rowing race, the Snow Row, will be on Saturday March 12, 2011 at the Windmill Point Boathouse, Hull. The Snow Row covers a 3 3/4 mile triangular course starting off the beach at Windmill Point, continuing around Sheep Island, past the Peddocks Island day marker, and back to shore. Huge crowds gather on the beach beside the museum’s Windmill Point Boathouse to share in the wild, LeMans-style start, unpredictable weather, and one-of-a-kind gathering of gorgeous boats and athletes. Entirely within view of the Boathouse, the event is as much of a thrill for spectators as for participants. A Harbor Express high speed ferry, with boarding at Pemberton Pier, follows the race course, affording spectators an even closer view of the event. It is also a rare opportunity to see, up close, rowers of all ages and their stunning array of wooden pulling boats -- peapods, dories, wherries, whitehalls, ocean shells, kayaks, pilot gigs, captain’s gigs, and Irish currachs. For the tenth year, crews from Cornwall, U.K. will be coming to New England to participate. Youth and adult crews and rowers from all over New England, New York, and along the East Coast will join them.

         The race has five boat categories: workboats, livery boats, coxed boats, ocean kayaks, and ocean shells. A few notes to all race participants: 1) all boats must carry PFDs, bailers, and whistles, 2) all coxed boats must pre-register and begin the race bow on the beach, and 3) the HLM Race Committee reserves the right to cancel the race or keep individual boats from setting forth due to weather conditions or rower skill level.

         After watching the excitement of the Snow Row’s one-of-a-kind start, come to the Lifesaving Museum, a mile from the boathouse, which will be open throughout the day with free admission. For more information, please contact Lory Newmyer or Ed McCabe at the Hull Lifesaving Museum, 781-925-5433 or info@hulllifesavingmuseum.org.

  • Cohasset, MA - Cohasset Sailing Club to get a New Club House

    Posted Under: Quality of Life in Cohasset, Parks & Recreation in Cohasset, In My Neighborhood in Cohasset  |  January 17, 2011 7:53 AM  |  841 views  |  No comments

    A New Facility may be in store for The Cohasset Sailing Club! 

    The Cohasset Sailing Club which recently  celebrated its 50th Aniversary last season, is about to embark on a major over haul to its facilities.  As I noted in a previous post, a new club house is in the works for the Cohasset Sailing Club.  

    By was of reference the Cohasset Sailing Club is a community based organization whose charge is to provide the townspeople of Cohasset, and children in particular but not exclusively,  with an affordable opportunity to learn and practice sailing.  Over the last 50+ years, countless Cohasset Residents have learned to sail and began life long love affair with the sport.  And who knows how many fond memories linger out there of summers gone by on the water, memories that stay with with you beyond the borders of Cohasset.

    Recent years at the Cohasset Sailing Club have been some of the best in its history when it comes to enrollment.  The Club is at or near record enrollment for both the youth and adult sailing programs.  This is both the good news and the bad news.  The recent success have made the club out grow its current facility.   The club house that was built in 1979 no longer offers the space needed for neither the class sizes, nor storage of the equipment.  The systems in the club house are also in need of an upgrade from the roof, to the electrical, to the plumbing.  After an exhaustive study, it was determined that it would be less expensive to simply start anew with a facility that could keep out with current demand.  And so, plans have been recently approved by the various town boards to rebuild a new "Green" club house.  The building will be the towns first LEED (Leadership in Environmental Energy Design) registered building.  

    With approvals in Hand the leadership of the Cohasset Sailing Club is now in the early stages of a fund raising campaign to raise the nearly $500,000 needed for the new club house.  All donations will be tax deductable, and if you choose to support the campaign, there is a link below that assist you in your genorsity as well as educate you on the goals of the club.

    On March 12 there will be a fundraising party at the Atlantica Restaurant from 7:30 to 11:30 PM, and I hope to see you there.

  • Scituate, MA - Seawall Repairs the responsibility of First Cliff Residents?

    Posted Under: General Area in Scituate, Parks & Recreation in Scituate, In My Neighborhood in Scituate  |  January 13, 2011 6:15 AM  |  647 views  |  No comments

    Scituate, MA - First Cliff Residents Responsible for Seawall Repairs?

    Okay so I am not the only one guilty of advocating how wonderful it is to live in Scituate, MA with its great proximity to the many beaches the town has to offer.  Homes for Sale in Scituate, MA often note their location relative to a particular beach.  However living too close to the water in the middle of January can highlight the cons of being so close to nature.

     

    Recently, a  group of about 15 First Cliff residents voices their concerns to the board of selectmen that a break in the seawall in their neighborhood could cause a breach in the future, something nobody wishes to see happen.  The First Cliff residents highlighted that the seawall was a danger to the harbor and the town boat yard, and since it was built with federal funds more than a century ago and fixed with town funds in the past, they hoped that a precedent had been set and that the town would once again repair the seawall.

     

    The First Cliff residents fear that the sea wall will not stand up to another strong storm.  They even presented the Board of Selectmen with a newspaper clipping showing that the town fixed the wall after the Blizzard of ’78.  They feel the need to look ahead at seawall problems instead of and be proactive to them. There is a significant piece of town property behind the seawall, and it could be a hazard now.

     

    The position of the Board of Selectmen is that because the seawall is located on private property and near a private beach area, and had previously been a privately owned wall, therefore it cannot not be repaired with town funds.  The board did note that they are aware of the condition of the seawall, but clearly stated that there is no money to repair it at this time.  Plans are in the works to meet with the residents of the area and get a handle on the damage and any potential risks it may pose for those tax paying citizens of the area.

     

    Stay tuned on this one, it could get interesting.

    Thanks for reading my post.

    Sincerely,

    William "Bill" Tierney
