We have a small group of dedicated people that work on getting information out to all club members. The Rowing Shorts, emails, web page, facebook, you name it. It's a team effort. If you want to know how this is done and would like to help and be apart of the MBC Communications, please send Jacque Hamilton an email. Her email address is gro.bulctaobatosennim|tnediserpeciv#gro.bulctaobatosennim|tnediserpeciv.

Rowing On the Water
The ramps have been pulled as we await the crest of the river. Currently, predictions are to crest tomorrow. By next Tuesday or Wednesday, we will most likely be below 12 feet and can place the ramp back in. With a national qualifying regatta a mere few weeks away, the Juniors will be rowing out of Lake Gervais until the ramp is back in place. We look forward to watching them compete in Cincinnati, representing both our club and region well. All other programs will continue to run out of the boathouse unless you hear otherwise from your coach.
