Notes on the event, added to this post on Tuesday, June 8:

We had a really nice day on Saturday for Discover Rowing with the river at 27 feet and sunny skies.

• 19 visitors signed up and rowed
• 20 GDRA volunteers
A big THANK YOU to the all the GDRA volunteers. Everyone worked to make this a positive experience for our guests, and it was so nice see everyone pulling together. Many of you arrived early on Saturday morning to get things rolling, spent for hours on the water, and sweated it out until every launch, erg, oar and boat was put away. Thank you all.
