How You Can Support O.A.R.'s Activities
Oregon Association of Rowers strives to expand area rowing opportunities.
 Fund raising and donations allow us to keep dues low and provide opportunities to more people. Our Adult and Junior rowers separately manage their costs, dues and fund raising activities. Together we raise funds for activities and equipment of the whole Club.


Club Fund Raising

Help Us Add the Remaining Lanes to our Buoyed Race-Course

OAR’s long-term goal of constructing a 2,000 meter, seven lane, fully buoyed race course will provide one more high level regatta site to the northwest rowing community. Locally, it will bring many more rowers and visitors to Lane County, and boost the economies of Lowell, Springfield and Eugene. The cost associated with the miles of steel cable, anchoring systems, hardware and thousands of small lane buoys is very high so we plan to take small steps in reaching that goal.

 Junior Crew Fund Raising

OAR Junior Crew has particularly high operational-costs due to the daily bus-transportation between Eugene and Dexter Lake.

OAR Jr Crew has several fundraising events through the year to assist with funds for operations, equipment, and the Bill Reinka Scholarship Fund.

Activities include the Rowathon, Wreath and Poinsettia sales, Rent a Rower, car washes, and more. For information contact the team [info@oarjrcrew.net] or see the Jr Crew website [oarjrcrew.org] for upcoming events and fund drives.
