Our beloved Open Water Rowing Center is expanding its indoor rowing program. Have you seen the newly arranged space? So, we have the space, the demand and even some great coaches (like Chris, who nearly did us in yesterday with his WOD. But do not worry, there will be all levels of erg coaching available.) BUT! We need more machines! This GoFundMe campaign is for the acquisition of 6 new ergs and 4 hardware upgrades for existing rowing machines. To be exact, 6 Concept2 Model D, and 4 PM5 upgrades, for a total of $6500. That is my personal pitch. I will leave you with the more formal blurb right here. Thanks! MM
OWRC has been the premier open water rowing facility serving southern Marin and San Francisco counties since……… It provides valuable community access to Richardson and San Francisco Bays and to the sport of rowing. We offer an outstanding learn-to-row program, provide rowing equipment, clinics, events, and most importantly and fun-loving sports community.
OWRC is offering coached indoor rowing classes six times a week in addition to indoor rowing clinics when our 3x a week outdoor rowing clinics are grounded by weather conditions. These six additional ergs will allow everyone in the clinics to have access to a machine, and it provides a popular entry point for new comers looking for a way to get started with rowing.
