Tomorrow 6/25 is our mini-regatta and picnic at the boat site starting at 9:00 am. Details here.
Support a worthy cause…Our Club!
We are running an important fundraising opportunity – an online apparel sale with lots of great rowing gear which sports our club’s logos.
Order deadline is Sunday, June 26 at midnight with an expected delivery of mid-July, shipped directly to your home.
Please be aware that the water level is dropping. Watch your depth. What was deep enough on your last row may be too shallow today. In general:
- Stay close to the center line of the river on the appropriate side for your direction of travel (Jersey upstream, Pennsy downstream).
- Watch the rocky area jutting out by Swan Creek.
- Eights, fours, quads going upriver should use the arch to the left of the center pylon (or third opening from PA) to go UP River. Singles and doubles should use the opening to the right of the center pylon. All boats should only use the first two openings from PA to go DOWN the river. It is best to always use these openings no matter how high or low the river is. The habit will help to keep avoid hitting the bottom when the river is too low. Please see the second page of the River Map
- Move closer to the center line when passing Alexauken Creek, watch for traffic in the opposite direction. Frequently only one boat can pass. (Think of it a a single lane bridge on a two-way road.)
- Above the toll bridge, traveling upstream on the Jersey side, stay as close as possible to the center line without crossing over to the Pennsy/downstream side.
Jack Patterson, a SCRC youth member, was awarded the rank of Eagle Scout on Sunday 19th June. This is the highest and most coveted award in all Scouting. As part of his final Scouting project he designed, built and erected two entrance arbors in Kunkel Park, Pennington, NJ. He was given recognition for this as well as his services during his various scouting groups throughout the years and presented with his Eagle Scout neckerchief by the Washington Crossing Council. Congratulations Jack, a well-deserved award for your prestigious work. Kept that quiet didn’t you?!? Jack will be attending Loyola University in Maryland this year. Good luck Jack!
