Thanks to the generosity of so many of Jim's coaching friends around the region, the LLVRC is acquiring a fleet of used boats for under $ 10,000. We are purchasing 1 -8+, 3 4+'s 3 -2x-'s, 1 single and sculling oars from UCLA and Newport Aquatic Center. Jim will be travelling soon to pick these up. Then we have worked a fantastic deal with Willamette University for most of their rowing equipment after they shut down their program over a year ago. Many of these boats have been damaged in storage, but can be fixed and will be nice additions for our program. We will be getting 4 8+'s, 2 4+'s, 2 2x-'s, cox boxes, oars and another aluminum racks. River City is donating 3 8+'s and 1 4+ and all of this equipment will be arriving on October 15th. Now we need a boathouse! or just warehouse to store most of the equipment so we can work on it. Let me know if you have any leads on space.
