Even though it’s the off-season, there’s plenty going on at the club.
•Nordic ski outing this Saturday. Beginners welcome. Information and sign-up at this link
•Annual Membership Meeting. 3-5pm January 31 at the Lucky Labrador MULTNOMAH VILLAGE location. Pizza, salad and non-alcoholic drinks provided. No-host bar. Join us for a preview of 2016, board elections, and the 2nd ever public showing of Edward Derby’s short film, Rowers Don’t Wear Lifejackets.
•Membership Fees and Waivers. While the deadline for 2016 membership dues is March 1, we’d appreciate renewals now so that we can pay some of our annual bills. And please complete the waiver instructions you received in email on January 4.
•Learn to Row 2016. Registration will open this weekend. Let your friends know so they can grab an early spot.
•Feb. 14th Erg Event–with the cancellation of Tough Love this year, we had planned on a homegrown erg race at the boathouse. Fortunately, the University of Portland has stepped up and their rowing team will host an erg race on the morning of February 14 at the Chiles Center at U of P. The advantage of this is an opportunity to race against other local rowers, plus the added bonus of more witnesses! Look for entry information soon. All proceeds will go toward the new race course at Vancouver Lake.
