Team Boat Schedule

(see instructions below)

Instructions to schedule boats through Google Calendar:

  • Login to Google Calendar with the user name ‘scrcreservations’
  • The password was sent out in a club emailing. If you do not have it, request it by sending an email request here
  • Once logged in:
    • On the calendar grid, click on the date and time for when you would like to reserve a boat
    • Under “What”:
      • Specify your name or group’s name
      • Identify the boat you would like to reserve (see “Tips for identifying boats” below)
      • For example, “Men’s Masters – White Hudson 8+”
    • If this is a one time reservation, click “Create event” and you are done
    • If this is a recurring reservation, click “Edit event”
      • Select the date range desired
      • Check “Repeat…”
      • Set the day/time frequency for when your reservation should repeat
      • Click “Save” and you are done
  • Confirm that your reservation is visible to others by displaying the calendar at http://www.swancreekrowing.com/team-boat-schedule/

Note: if you are unfamiliar with adding events to Google calendar, or need assistance, send an email and I’ll walk you through it.

Rules governing reservations:

  • If you made a reservation that you no longer need, please remember to delete your reservation so that others may use the equipment.
  • If there is no reservation, the equipment will be used on a first-come-first-served basis.
  • If you do not show up within 15 minutes of your reservation start time, your reservation is forfeit and others may use the equipment.
  • Only team boats (i.e., doubles thru eights) and coaching launches are reserved. Singles are on a first-come-first-served basis.

Tips for reservations:

  • Check the calendar before showing up to row to ensure the boat you are expecting to row is not reserved.
  • Please be careful when updating the calendar that you do not accidentally (or intentionally!) modify others’ reservations.

Tips for identifying boats:

  • Identify the boat as specifically as possible. If it does not have a name on the bow (e.g., “Nell Lewis”), use a combination of color + make + boat type, e.g., White Hudson 8+, or Blue Vespoli 2x.
  • Boat types should be:
    Eight = 8+
    Coxed or straight Four (sweep) = 4+/-
    Quad (sculling) = 4x
    Double (sculling) or pair (sweep) = 2x/-
  • Please list specific boats, e.g., White Sykes 4+. “two more fours” and “a double” are too vague. Assume that your reservations will not be respected unless the boats are unambiguously identified.
