Spring Improver Clinic

 Spring has arrived and it’s time to get back out on the river! 
 
The Club is very excited to offer Masters Rowers a Spring Improver Clinic with former Oregon State and Vesper rower Saasha Bruce.  All levels are welcome. 
 
The clinic is open to all Club members wanting to brush up and improve their rowing skills, sweep or scull.  
 
Day and Time: Sundays at 9 am 
 
Number of Weeks: 5  
 
Start Date: May 6, 2018 
 
End Date: June 3, 2018 
 
Cost: $40* 
 
*We’ve priced this Clinic knowing that we’re all busy and likely to miss a session or three. Even if that’s the case, this clinic is a steal! Price assumes a certain number of participants. Could be marginally higher if we don’t get enough interest so grab your buddy and make sure that doesn’t happen! 
 
Reasons to sign up: 
 
  • Desire to improve sweep, sculling or both techniques 
  • Find other masters rowers in the Club to row with 
  • Take the next step following Learn To Row classes 
  • Develop the blade work to compete for a Regatta seat 
Seats will fill up fast. Email membership@swancreekrowing.com to confirm your place today. 

Swan Creek … Attention … Row!

Effective immediately, our new home is open for rowing. Boats can now be rigged, rowed and racked!

SAFETY FIRST

Please note that Safety Flags still need to be obeyed (posted on our Club website and to be posted at the site). As of the time of this email, we are under a RED Flag warning prohibiting any rowing activity (although temperatures are expected to rise this weekend).

MEMBERS ONLY

If you have not yet renewed your 2018 Membership, you are not permitted to use the Site or Club equipment. Please visit our membership page on Regatta Central immediately to take care of this or email treasurer@swancreekrowing.com with questions.

RIG AND DIG

If you do get down to the site before we’ve been able to finish site set up, bring a wrench and be prepared to “rig and dig (out your oars).” A lot of the infrastructure we took for granted at our last site e.g. the key and logbook stand, the open equipment shed, the boat cleaning towels etc.… will be set up as we get the new site operational but are not in place yet.

PRIVATE BOATS

A rack assignment plan will be circulated very soon. If you do bring your boat to the site, please note that it will be moved once the rack assignment plan is published. Contact boatcaptain@swancreekrowing.com with questions.

SPRING IMPROVER CLINIC

Now that we are operational, keep your eye out for our Spring Improver Clinic notification coming out really soon. Dust off your skills with an early season refresher. Contact membership@swancreekrowing.com for details.

Time to dig out your water sandals! I look forward to seeing you on the river soon.

Regards,
Bill King
