National Learn to Row Day with White Rock Rowing!

Hi guys, I'd like to invite y'all to come and check out this free event to try rowing (crew). Join us at the White Rock Boathouse! Middle School, High School students, and adults of all ages are welcome. Also, our adaptive rowing program is open to any area person with a physical disability - come on by for a demonstration of how our rowing equipment can be adapted on the water so that everyone can enjoy rowing.

Meet the coaches, tour the boathouse, watch videos, enjoy free snacks, learn the basics, and get out on the water for a test drive (all you need are shorts, tennis shoes, and sunscreen). Saturday, June 7, 9:00 am to 1:00pm. No RSVP is required, just show up. You'll be asked to sign a waiver; parents can sign the waiver for their children. The boathouse is located at 2810 White Rock Road, the southwest shore of White Rock Lake, near the old pump station / filter building. For more information contact [masked] or check out our website at

    Thanks everyone for coming! Sorry we had such a long line - WFAA got us a lot more publicity than we thought! :) If you didn't get out on the water or you couldn't make it out today, contact me for a private boathouse tour or on-the-water experience!

    Great introduction to rowing. Wish we'd been out longer on the boat but there was a line-up of folks waiting. Beautiful sunny day. I went early and did not find any NTO'ers but hope to meet up at another event.

    FYI guys the event is first-come first served so if you're in a hurry, come towards the beginning of the day when the line will be shortest. Thanks!

    Sorry to miss this (will be backpacking in Australia). Rowed for 20 years in Canada before moving down here...
