When can we get on the water? Long Spring Runoff — Silver Lake Rowing in 2022

Well the spring run off on the Spokane River is not expected to subside to rowable conditions for a few more weeks. SO, SRRA is shifting gears to give us the opportunity to get on the water in mid June at Silver Lake.

This means we need to move some boats. We plan to do this on Monday 13 June. I have entered a session in iCrew from 5:30- 7:30 pm we will need at least 6 people to help de rig, load the trailer and unload at Silver Lake (GU Johnson Family boathouse). 

After that, the plan is for rowing sessions:

    • Monday and Thursday evenings 5:30-730ish,
    • Wednesday mornings 5:45- 7:30 ish 
    • Saturday morning 8-10.

Specific times will be posted by Coach Voorheees in ICrew.  I am excited to get to row at this facility, it has a great dock and  Silver Lake is a cool new place to row. Thanks to GU for sharing!

REMINDER: you can only get on the water after registering, paying, and completing the various safety and insurance documents and trainings. It might be a bit daunting at first, but once it’s done it’s done!  See details at Membership.
