Hi Hanlan members, Are you interested in giving back to the sport that you love but not sure how to do it? One of the best ways to do this is to become a rowing umpire. If you are the type of rower who likes being on the water but is not into racing, umpiring is a great way to be part of the action. For those rowers who do love to race, umpiring is an excellent way to learn the rules of racing. Don't worry about having to choose between racing and umpiring. There are plenty of regattas that are category specific and won't conflict with your regattas.
Hanlan has been asked to host an umpire clinic. If you are interested in becoming an umpire, please let me know.
Thanks, Kelly Brigley Hanlan Club Captain
