Thanks to the Town of Sunapee’s generous hospitality, we will again row out of the Georges Mills Public Boat Launch.
New this year is an earlier opportunity to get on the water with our Spring Sweeps and Sculls session starting June 3. Three days per week, this group will be open to everyone regardless of skill level. We will work out the winter kinks and get ready for the summer.
Plan ahead – last year we had a great Fall Regatta League with several rowers competing for their first time at the New Hampshire Championships in October. I hope to see many more LSRC rowers joining us for some fun, local racing in the 2014 season.
If your schedule doesn’t match ours, consider signing up for our sculling plan. Once you pass a Flip Test and show you can handle yourself in a single, double, or quad, you are free to use the club boats during morning and evening hours set aside for your use. Boats are reserved on a first-come, first-served basis.
Please note – for the first time in LSRC’s seven-year history, our membership costs have increased. But – we are also offering a reduced price for members for most programming fees. We work hard to keep our costs down, and compared to other rowing clubs, are extremely reasonable. We are also proud to offer partial scholarships to rowers who would like to participate, but can’t row because they can’t afford the full costs. These scholarships are made available through the heroic fundraising efforts by our volunteers.
If your vacation falls in the middle of one of our sessions, we can be flexible with the weeks that you row and accommodate your schedule. Also, if you would like to row in the morning Sweeps and Sculls this summer but can only come 2 days/week, we can put together a seat sharing opportunity with another rower. Let us know how we can make it work for you.
In the next few weeks you will be hearing more about:
- Sunapee Clean Up Day – LSRC’s first roadside trash pick-up on 5/3 from 9 to 12
- Adaptive Training Day
- Prouty Kick-Off Party in Sunapee
- Craftsbury Sculling Camp
We have some of the cleanest, most beautiful water in the country. Come, join us!
