Spokane River Rowing Association


Just renewed my membership at SRRA... Our season would normally be ramping up about now, but our on-water activity remains uncertain. Hopefully we can get some rowing in later this summer and fall.
Someday we'll be back on the water...
Hello SRRA members! A 16 year old German exchange student, Lovis, competes with sculling in her home country, and would love to continue it while in America on exchange. She also has been playing the cello since she was 5 years old. Please send me a PM if anyone can help this young lady out somehow. She will be a 2020-21 academic year student. Thanks so much! ~Kathleen Cassidy, representing AYA, Academic Year in America
Passing on some HOTL logistics info in case SRRA or GU teams need it: Due to a Husky home football game on Saturday November 3rd, there is no parking on Saturday at the UW. This includes E-1 and E-18. If you are arriving with a trailer on Saturday contact Don Kuehn at: [email protected] for alternative parking arrangements. Limited Parking is available for trailers at LWRC on Saturday and Sunday. You MUST contact Don to make arrangements to park at LWRC.
For TBT- it would be neat to try this. Ancient Biorower 🙂
Safety first.
In case you need winter training ideas.
A new twist for next year's plank challenge?
In case you've ever wondered why Mark Voorhees and other coaches are so careful about how the trailer is loaded. This is just one factor.
This never gets old.
Errr, actually.

The Spokane River Rowing Association (SRRA) provides rowing opportunities for the people of the Inland Empire and Greater Spokane area, particularly those who have never before had access to rowing.

Great new podcast for anyone interested in the art of coxing!

From creator Breana Downey:

Hello rowing friends,
In a stereotypical quarantine move, today I am launching my podcast CoxPod, which as the name implies is for coxswains, as well as coaches and rowers who interact with coxswains. I brought two brilliant and skilled coxswain friends in on this with me who many of you know, Anne and Sally, and we launched our first three episodes today. We have a legit website (https://www.coxpod.com!) where you can listen to each episode (you can also find us on any podcast app), and a page right here on Facebook where you can stay up to date on our content, as well as profiles on all other social media platforms. I'm really proud of our visual branding, which was massively supported by an artist who is a member of the rowing community, and who also happens to be a student at the university where I teach!
I hope you'll take a listen and/or share this with your rowing communities, and tell us what you think!

OKC Mayor implores residents to refrain from higher-risk activities for 10 days amid coronavirus spike

Posted by a coxswain friend in OK. Once again demonstrating that rowing is an excellent metaphor for many parts of life:

When your mayor reveals that he's maybe a rower and says the word 'coxswain' on live TV in a coronavirus briefing?? 🤯

"Believe it or not, Oklahoma City is one of the strongest rowing communities in the country. We are the home of an Olympic training facility for rowing and paddle sports. There’s a phrase in rowing. It’s called a power 10. It’s when the coxswain—that’s the person at the front of the boat—asks the rowers for 10 powerful strokes. Obviously the race is a lot longer than 10 strokes, and she knows that. But it’s a little much to ask for a power 1000. So she asks for a power 10. I’m asking you for a power 10 today. I’m asking you for the next 10 days to take a break from higher-risk activities."

(quote starts at 11:55 into the video, and you can also enjoy the transcript in which the transcriber had no idea how to write coxswain and just put "--" as a placeholder)

koco.com Oklahoma City Mayor David Holt pleaded with the public Thursday to refrain from higher-risk activities for at least 10 days due to the recent "skyrocketing" spread of COVID-19 in the metro.

For those wondering what happening at the river... the spring runoff is beginning, though below historic averages for now.

100-year-old rower says she has no plans to stop

Have we mentioned that it's a lifetime sport?

fox5ny.com If you would've asked Nanette Fishman if she ever thought she'd take up rowing in her nineties, it would've been one of the last things on her mind.

Bend the Blade

"It's hard to make that boat go as fast as you want to. The enemy, of course, is resistance of the water, as you have to displace the amount of water equal to the weight of men and equipment, but that very water is what supports you and that very enemy is your friend. So is life: the very problems you must overcome also support you and make you stronger in overcoming them."
-George Yeoman Pocock

Woohoo! New doubles are on their way!
