As we head into the Holiday Season the members of the board of Triad United Rowing Association would like to express their gratitude to all those who have supported the program this season. Thanks to our incredible benefactor Dr. Lenny Peters and his organizations Bethany Medical, and the Lenny Peters Foundation, we have hosted amazing boat races on Oak Hollow Lake this year drawing thousands to High Point. Thank you Dr. Peters!
Mark your calendars for October 8, 2023 when we host our next regatta.
It takes great partnerships to host regattas and we are grateful to the City of High Point's Parks & Recreation Department for maintaining the parks around Oak Hollow Lake in such pristine condition. More recently the city has teamed up with Visit High Point to install a dock for racing at Festival Park with a race course also to come in 2023. Thanks also to support from Visit High Point and the High Point City Council we will soon have additional motor boats to attract visiting teams to Oak Hollow Lake for spring break training in March and April next year. These teams will bring a healthy economic boost to our local tourism industry.
In December we held our first fundraising campaign since the days of pre-Covid 19 and our rowers & crew parents quickly ensured it was a success. The $10,000 needed to purchase an enclosed trailer for the team to transport our cooking supplies, tables and tents to regattas was raised in just a week, with additional funds raised to go toward the purchase of a defibrillator for the erg room. This trailer will be a much needed addition for the club.
Thank you so much to these rowers & parents who supported the Chuck Wagon campaign:

Note, the campaign will remain open for now until we raise an additional $1,000 to purchase the defibrillator.
Giving & Sponsorship
Much of what we do would not be possible without the support of people and businesses who believe in the power of sport and especially rowing. Their financial support and assistance is vital in helping our programs grow and bring our region to the international rowing stage.
