Our limited summer camps are open! Thank you for your patience
As the state begins to re-open LOCR and the Lake Oswego Parks and Rec department are working together to re-open the Charlie S Brown Water Sports Center. USRowing and the state of Oregon have provided guidelines to safe operation which we have taken into consideration while developing our phased return to rowing.
Our guiding principles are a slow staged approach to resuming activities. Err on the side of safety and "protocol overkill" to start.
We are privileged to be able to row and need to be doubly good citizens!

We will keep a blog page up with regular updates on club activities and progress. We will be advancing our programs slowly and with caution. The dynamics of our situation will require us to be flexible, adaptable and diligent. Taking these safety measures DOES NOT guarantee you won't contract COVID-19 or that the symptoms will be mild. We advise everyone to critically analyze their situation and make the right choice for themselves.
Protocols in place to keep us safe
Read and sign before attempting to schedule
You will be asked to follow these protocols

This includes coverage for member club premises and member club operations including, but not limited to, camps/clinics, on-water practices, events and activities otherwise not excluded. The same applies for registered regattas. If you are a USRowing-sanctioned regatta in good standing, all verbiage within the master policy is in force for the regatta. Please Note: Failure to abide by federal, state, and local mandates including, but not limited to, social distancing protocols may lead to possible gray areas within the verbiage of your policy. If practices take place prior to your state’s green light reopening phase or a regatta is held contrary to federal, state and local guidelines, it may potentially impact the USRowing General Liability insurance.” Washington State Guideline for Paddle Sports From Guided ATV, Paddle Sports, and Horseback Riding: “3. During Phase 1 of Safe Start Washington clients for guided tour trips must be all be from the same household with maximum of 8 participants. In Phase 2 groups of mixed households allowed, with a maximum of 3 households and a maximum of 12 individuals in a group. In Phase 2 overnight trips are allowed. Socially distancing still required between participants of different households.”
