Successful Learn To Row Day

OMRC had another successful Learn To Row day on Saturday, June 6th, to coincide with the USRowing National Learn to Row Day. The LTR attendees came off the water with smiles on their faces, and most importantly, dry clothes. A total of 17 novice rowers participated. The participants were provided an overview of OMRC, Sandy Run Regional Park, and equipment. OMRC Head Coach Tom Bennett gave instruction on rowing technique – including a demonstration on a rowing machine. Many thanks to all of the OMRC volunteers for coaching, coxing, launch driving, rowing, and helping on the dock. Some of the participants have expressed interest in rowing again. Here are a few pictures from the event:
