Novice Scrimmage

As part of the Session III camp, all of our rowers will have the chance to participate in our fifth annual SRA Novice Scrimmage on Friday, August 23rd! This is the day when we combine both sessions of novice rowing, and race boats down a 1,000 meter course on Lake Sammamish.

Parents are highly encouraged to watch the races from Idylwood Park in Redmond, then drive over to the SRA boathouse afterward for some potluck snacks and socializing with the SRA staff and rowers and other parents. Please note the change in the normal schedule for this day only!! Event details are below:
