News and Updates

Summer Extravaganza Info

Hello North West Rowers!  Our annual Summer Regatta will be Saturday, August 5.  

Initial Schedule is available here.  We have done our very best to be as creative as possible within the guidelines provided so that as many crews as possible can participate in the Summer Extravaganza.  Jason will be out of the office the week of July 24th and  jumping back in to work on entries July 31st.   Take a look and please follow up with Jason on the 31st for any errors or question you may have.  Anyway,  doing our best to make sure we have a fair fun regatta his August.

Entry packets can be downloaded here.  This past year USRA passed a rule which limits the hours Green Lake can operate the summer regatta and stay within compliance.  To make this work we have had to eliminate some events from this year’s schedule. This is a big challenge because a typical summer event at Green Lake runs for 10-12 hours.   Some cuts were made although we’ll still do our best to get the new rowers races so that they can have that first magical experience on the lake.

Middle School Rowing

Is your middle schooler interested in rowing and looking for a jump start? These camps are the perfect introduction for young rowers to the exciting sport of Junior Crew.

Courses will teach basic stroke technique with an emphasis on fitness and fun, and help prepare kids to move onward to Green Lake Crew! These camps are open to boys and girls, and a float test is required. No previous experience necessary. Limited spaces are available, so please register early to secure a spot.

On with the Racing!

Spring season is pretty much all about the rowing at this point–but let’s review some of the off-the-water accomplishments before we turn everything over to the coxes.

Great boat dedication event on Saturday, April 15. Four new shells: Frank Coyle, Lenny Kong, Jonathan Hartung, and Jim Beaulaurier were honored for all of their service to GLC. Pictures are on the ‘official’ Green Lake Crew FB page.

Finally, we had a record crowd and a record bottom line for the annual Raisin’ of the Green (April 1). Over 150 registered, and we netted just shy of $49,000 for our financial aid and equipment budgets. You could help push us past the $50,000 mark by making your secure, and tax deductible, donation (choose “Annual Fund” on the pull-down).

 Thank you to everyone who worked to make these events such a success. See you ‘down at the lake.’
