GDRA was very fortunate that our facility was untouched by the Memorial Day tornadoes that caused so much damage in the Dayton area. One of the tornadoes passed very close to the north of Island MetroPark, leaving some fallen trees. Our boathouse, docks, and the boats in the outdoor cage are intact.
We won’t be able to row for several days because of high water, debris, and contamination. However, this is only a small inconvenience, for which we are thankful. We hope that all our members, along with others in the Dayton area who may be visiting this site, were not injured and have a safe place to stay.
