TRC Welcomes You

 

 

Welcome to Tampa Rowing Club, Tampa’s premier private rowing facility…Our Club has a rich and colorful history…. Founded in the late 1960s by a group of young and competitive scullers… TRC was incorporated in 1984 and about the same time was relocated on the University of Tampa campus in the “Van McNeel Boathouse”… Here we have created a recreational facility for rowing enthusiasts…we want our members to have the best (and safest) possible rowing experience…and so we direct your attention to the following areas…

 

-Inventory… We have a broad selection of TRC owned inventory (boats and oars) available to TRC members… You need to know that many of our members keep their privately owned boats and oars at the boat house… This easily identified private equipment is not available to the general membership…

 

-Signage… Boat signage has been created so that you can clearly identify TRC equipment by noting the small sign tacked at the end of every boat rack and on the riggers…

 

-Documents…You must use the “Sign in–Sign out Log” every time you are on the water…Under the sign in desk is a small filing cabinet that contains wavier and release forms, charts of our rowing area, TRC Rules and Regulations… In the same area is the “Maintenance log book” to use if a boat is damaged along with red tags to affix to the damaged equipment… Please take care to print legibly…

 

-Board Meetings… Held monthly and open to all of our members… New members need to attend at least one meeting so that we can get to know you, answer questions and also help you reach your comfort level on the water with our equipment…

 

-Finances…TRC expenses are significant…Insurance costs; equipment purchases and upkeep, dock replacement and repair and financial obligations to UT have been as high as $25,000 in recent years…. So you need to pay your dues promptly… Annually you (and anyone in your family who rows) will need to complete a wavier and release form and also an updated personal information form…Dues structure is determined by the board of directors...

 

In recent years we have made the boat house more accessible and user friendly for TRC members. In addition TRC enjoys a longstanding and warm relationship with the University of Tampa and that will continue in the future….

 

So have fun at TRC… Take good care of the equipment and be considerate of your fellow rowers… Please take time to read this important policy and procedure manual…

 

Happy Rowing…
