New Member Orientation

Prospective members schedule an orientation meeting with Vice President Steve Roberts (gro.cbowornull@pihsrebmem). The session takes about an hour and covers club and park policies as well as a competency test. New members will be asked to

  • Remove a single from the racks, carry it to the docks, and launch.
  • Scull upstream within the sight of the docks, turn 180˚, back the shell, and possibly perform other maneuvers.
  • Return to the dock, carry the shell back to boathouse, and return it to the racks.

Members must show that they can scull competently and move shells in and out of the racks without damaging them.

OBC does not administer a flip test, as no swimming is allowed in the reservoir.

Prospective members should look over the OBC Handbook and “Know Before You Row” before orientation.
