Thank you.

Happy Thanksgiving to all our members, our friends and their families.

It might sound trite, but in the rowing world we have a lot to be thankful for.   We started the year rowing singles in the pandemic, and we ended the year with a fully vaccinated membership, rowing team boats and attending regattas (still in a pandemic).

We suffered some losses with the warehouse roof collapse in February, but with the help of insurance and generous member donations we fixed the damaged 2x’s, purchased a new 8+, new 4x, new 2x and two new 1x’s.

Our coaches adapted to longer hours retrieving and returning launches to a dock that’s nearly a mile from the boatyard.  Our members adapted to changing schedules and welcomed many new teammates as our paid membership increased to over 160 people. We rolled out new initiatives to share our sport with more people and expect to do more of this in 2022.

Like other non-profits, this is also the time of year where we remind our supporters that if you are able and so inclined, the club is happy to accept your financial support.  Donations can be made via the website or by check to our mailing address, PO Box 14171 Portland OR 97293.

We are standing up a brokerage account to accept donation of appreciated stock.  If this option interests you, please contact Peter.

Thank you all for another great year of challenge and growth.
