The Genesee Rowing Club is run by members, for members. We encourage participants to become members and get a voice in making decisions that affect the club. 
An adult rower at any level can become a club member with full privileges. Members must be age 18+ for voting privileges at the annual member meeting and age 21+ for all but family social events.
