Photos up on Row2k. Probably some more out there, but looks like some of the events didn’t make it.
In this past weekend’s racing at the US Rowing Youth National Championships in Oak Ridge, TN. Swan Creek’s Miranda Bitzer fought her way up through the repechage to advance to the finals on Sunday. Way to go Miranda!
SPECIAL LEARN-TO-ROW EVENT
A group called Awesome Adventure Women has asked if we would provide them with a one-day rowing experience. Before we commit to them, we need to make sure we would have Club members available to assist in the event. Several persons would be needed to assist in the on-land and on-water instruction. The event would be held on Sunday, July 29 at the boat site. It would be several hours in length. We have had a few inquiries from groups that want to conduct team-building events this year; and it may be a good way for the Club to raise funds in the future, if we have the members who can devote some time to it.
Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
SITE USE PERMIT
There is a sign posted along the boat launch ramp that indicates that fees must be paid to the State Park Commission to launch a boat. We believe that it does not apply to Swan Creek Rowing Club because we pay them an annual fee. If you are questioned on this matter, you can find our Site Use Permit on the bulletin board on the rear side of the boat sign-out cabinet.
And, of course, before you can row, your membership dues need to be paid. The membership application is on the website under the “Membership” pull-down menu. If you have trouble accessing the file, send an email to email@example.com As always, remember that all pages of the application need to be filled in. It is important for our insurance policy that you sign the waiver and the swim certification. Your membership is not considered current until all paperwork is complete.
As of 6/4/2012, the river forecast shows levels above 11′ (at Trenton) thru 6/7/2012. Novices should not row above 11′. No one should row over 12′. Check the river gauge and desk flags before going out.
Sign up for towel duty (washing the boat towels). The sign up list is on a clipboard in the key cubby.
