    Saturday afternoon approximately 2:00:  This is when we typically make our run through the cut for the parade. Remember to have SPIRIT as we are being judged in the Spirit Class

    Saturday Afternoon, after the parade, lunch at the UW Husky Crew House: Following the parade and lap around 520 we arrive at the Conibear Shellhouse, home of the University of Washington Rowing Crew. Make sure crews have put away the shells before we dock. Bring your own lunch to picnic on the crew house dock.  Around 3:30 after the parade has ended, the green light will be turned on for boat traffic west thru the cut and we can return to Lake Union.

    1. Look at your calendar and see when you want to join within the week of June 23-29th. You can go for the whole 6 days or choose as many days as you wish.

    2. Talk amongst yourselves and fill up a boat. There can be as few as 6 people or as many as 12!  There are different sizes of boats to choose from. (Scott’s boat is full as he is bringing his whole family for the fun.)

    3. Designate a “captain” to make the reservations and put down the $500 deposit. Visit the link for pricing and boat sizes →

    4. Communicate with Scott (253) 732-5001 and with each other to determine how you will move up and down the lake. Will you stay in one spot for multiple days? Will you move every day and use the classic boats to scout new locations? How will meals work? Will every man fend for himself? Will you do potluck meals? Will you assign meals and take turns?

    5. Make the reservation!  Bring your runabout and ENJOY beautiful Lake Roosevelt!!
