Rowing club annual dinner

April 17, 2013 · Updated 12:05 PM

Orcas Island Junior Rowing Club is hosting its annual dinner at Orcas Center on Saturday, May 4.

It's an evening of food, good company and entertainment. Happy hour starts at 5:30 p.m. with live music, appetizers, a no-host-bar and socializing. Dinner is served at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $35.

Dinner is a choice of salmon, grilled chicken or vegetarian lasagne. Given enough time, any special dietary restrictions can be accommodated. The evening is an opportunity for Orcas Rowing to connect with the broader community. Most particularly this year, in addition to their usual need for about $5,000 in annual income, the junior program needs a new coxless quad rowing shell. The purchase has been financed by a generous interest free loan from Becky and Sam Blackadar but it must be paid off before the end of the current spring season.

The boat will be named after the late Al Ulbrickson Jr. at a naming ceremony on June 1 at the OIR boathouse. All are invited to attend.

The current junior crew is particularly competitive and experienced and has a great chance to medal at the Northwest Regional and even national regattas this year in more than one category.
