2017 SCRC Application Available Now

This year we are sending the 2017 Swan Creek Rowing Club Application directly to the membership for your convenience.  You will be receiving the application as a separate email directly from our club Secretary, Bonnie Snider (bonnieaileen@hotmail.com).  Please add her email address to your contacts to ensure you receive the application.

This year’s membership application reflects two new items which were announced at the 2016 Membership Meeting in December.

Full Year Dues for Masters now have Two Tiers:

  • Dues paid prior to March 1, 2017 will be $315 (as in 2016)
  • Dues paid (postmarked) after March 1, 2017 will be $350

Knowing the level of the Club Membership will allow the Board to better manage the 2017 Membership Roster.  The Board wants to ensure we do not over-extend our membership levels. Knowing the membership commitment before the rowing season begins will allow us to better manage our equipment and schedules.

Notice of Volunteer Hours:

New for this year, the application includes a notice regarding a requirement for a minimum of ten volunteer hours by each Club Member.  The goal of having volunteer hours is to enlist help for the many tasks required to run the Club during the rowing season.  In the past, the volunteer hours were more informal and performed by a limited number of members.

Last year we heard from many members that they are willing to help, they just need to know what they can do.  As a result, the Board is developing a more formal approach and a second communication will be sent with the details and type of tasks the membership can perform. We also believe this will be an opportunity for members to meet other SCRC members who row at different times or with specific groups.

Thanks! Swan Creek Rowing Club Board

Where are they now?
