Crystal Lake Rowing Club

The first boats and oars were donations from the Clinton Rowing Club in Tennessee; old but sturdy, they sat on blocks on the south end of main beach on the far side of the lake overflow with an orange snow fence to mark the area. Practice started by late summer and continued into the fall. The club moved to its current location at Kamijima park in 2005 by building an enclosure of chain link fence and assembling boat racks. That summer the first learn to row classes were held and the club members attended their first regatta. More old boats and oars were donated, however they needed to be repaired before hitting the water.
