We're Successful Because of You!

We rely on the support of our parents and families to make Mainland Rowing a success.  On race days, volunteer opportunities abound and can consist of anything from chaperoning a bus, to being a dockmaster, positioning boats from a stake boat, driving official's launches, managing parking, donating food items, or setting up / taking down the food tent.  Below you'll find this week's volunteer and food donation sign up opportunities.   Please review to determine where you can contribute.  Thank you in advance for your assistance!
