Boathouse Regatta: BBB Social Event

  • 31 Jul 2019
  • 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM
  • GRRA Boathouse 291 Northpark NE Grand Rapids

As a club, we love the opportunity to welcome new rowers on to the recreational team, spend time on the water, and, let's face, eat good food. One way we do this is to have regular Club Socials throughout the rowing season. We have dubbed these: BBBs, Boats, Burgers, and Beer (or the Beverage of your choice). This is a great way to give our new rowers a chance to race with experienced adult rowers in a friendly environment. We share our lives, our stories, and our passion for rowing with a little competition thrown in. Please be sure to put these dates on your 2019 calendar and plan on jumping in a boat or in the coxswain seat! Dates for our Boathouse Regattas are: Wednesday, May 29, Wednesday, July 31, Thursday, August 22, and September 26. Our BBBs begin at 6:00 and end around 8:30ish. All regular practices for that night are canceled so that everyone can enjoy the racing.

Things To Bring: We ask that everyone who attends bring a dish to pass and their own beverage. We supply the burgers, brats, tableware and condiments. We highly encourage rowers to invite their family and friends to watch the races and eat with us afterward. Stadium chairs and/or picnic blankets are recommended. We always have a donation jar for $5 toward the purchase of the food/utensils.
