President's Message

Exciting invitation to all West Siders, anyone who has an affinity for our rowing Club, current members, coaches , board members, athletes, alumni, parents, financial supporters and Friends.

On Wednesday, August 14th from 5:30pm to 6:30pm, in the WSRC Board Room, we will hold an open meeting to review and discuss the work of our strategic planning committee. The committee has been broken down into sub-committees  and the chair of each sub-committee will present to the assembled group. The highlight of the meeting will, no doubt, be the first showing of the preliminary drawings of a re-imagined West Side Rowing Club Campus. Peterson Architects the pre-eminent designers of rowing boathouses has taken the work of the Strategic Planning Committee and put together a facility concept that allows for growth and program development, contemplated by our planning process.

The purpose of the meeting is to gather data and opinions from our stakeholders and where appropriate add new ideas to the strategic vision of the West Side Rowing Club. It is a historic opportunity for all to help shape our future. Please join us!

This invitation will not layout the entire plan, for that you must attend the meeting, so put the date on your calendar and come down and get a glimpse of our current thinking on the future of our Club. 

As would be expected, the meeting will be followed by a West Side Happy Hour...cold beer, plus chips and dip on the deck. I hope to see you there.

Warm Regards,

Ted Marks

WSRC President
