LAS VEGAS (KXNT) – When most people think about Las Vegas they think of the bright lights, the multi-million dollar casinos, gambling, shows, the Strip or even the desert climate. Few people think about competitive rowing.

The Lake Las Vegas Collegiate Invitational is free to attend and will feature top and up-and-coming West Coast rowing programs in dual sprint 2,000 meter races in varsity, junior varsity and novice eight-person and four-person categories.
