Bridge and Back Racing Returns
For years members of the WRPC enjoyed challenging themselves against each other or just enjoyed participating in a paddle/row from the club dock up and around the Odebashian Bridge and back. Timing was not always done but the event was always enjoyed.
Now there is a re-commitment to this weekly activity, so feel free to join in as a competitor or a participant as you wish. 9:00 a.m. each Saturday from now on.
Uphold Our Honor
The combination on our locks will be changed on March 23. If you are a member in good standing at that time a member of the Board of Directors will contact you personally by telephone to provide the new combination. Please do not put any member in an awkward position by asking them them combination if you have not renewed your membership. Of course new members will be given the combination according to our policies.
Out with the old and In with the New
The Club is selling the small safety boat we have stored, and rarely used, in the Youth on Columbia Bay in the Annex Building. If you or another person you know are interested in buying this boat, please contact Pat Fitzgerald. We want to move this boat out of the Annex ASAP.
The Club is buying a new safety boat - an 18 foot Lowe - Jon style boat which will then be stored in the YOC bay. We expect to have this boat on hand by the end of March.
Join in the Work Party
A work party will be arranged at a time to be announced towards the end of the month of March. This annual Club work is important to the upkeep of our facilities and to the service we provide to each other and to the community. Please participate if you can do so. It runs from 10:00 a.m. or so on a Saturday morning until mid-afternoon and is a great time for fellowship as well as getting things done.
Be sure to tell a Board member you know what is important to you about the Club - good and bad. Everyone is a volunteer trying to make the Club as successful as possible.
The mission of the Wenatchee Row and Paddle Club:
