Lake Dunlap had some very special visitors this past week! The Lady Hawkeyes Rowing Team from the University of Iowa were out practicing from sun up to sun down completing 164 miles in the 8 days they were here! They were given a warm welcome by those who reside on Lake Dunlap. It was exciting to see them row by and cheer them on. Many were inspired by their presence and dusted off their own kayaks and joined them in appreciating Lake Dunlap’s beauty. It really has been a gorgeous January on all of the area lakes.
The Lady Hawkeyes will be back to take on Old Dominon here on Lake Dunlap, February 18th at 8am, and again for spring practice later in March. We had the opportunity to meet one of the coaches who goes by “G”. We asked him why Lake Dunlap? He said they simply used Google Earth in search of a good river/lake with nice long stretches and found Lake Dunlap. What an honor! We look forward to having you back Lady Hawkeyes! Best of luck to you all!
Check out this video that was shared by Hannah, a senior on the Iowa Women's Rowing team. She writes, “Thank you for being such supportive and welcoming fans! We loved our time on Lake Dunlap and can't wait to be back in February for a few days and March for Spring break training camp! I thought you might enjoy this video we made on your beautiful lake!”
