5k Row: Proficient single scullers only, club singles must be reserved with Jonathan
5K Erg: Register for a spot on one of the ergs; space is limited
2k ish Walk: If this is more your speed that's great.  If you just want to come down to socialize and people watch, no need to register; if you wish to support the event financially see below and make a donation once registration is open.
