Hosting a Learn to Row Day (6/4) event? Please post tips here!

As many of you know, National Learn to Row Day is right around the corner. This would be a wonderful time to share your organization's NLTR day strategies.

 

*****************************************************************

 

Are there particular approaches that have been used to attract a diverse group of prospective rowers to your event?

 

What advice might you give to other clubs that are interested in using NLTR day to broaden rowing exposure and accessibility in their respective communities?

This will be my first NLTR day with the club, so I'm looking forward to it and will report back in a few :)

 

I hope that the weather is beautiful for all of us!

 

Take care.
