Boathouse Closed

July 19, 2016 at 7:00 PM

Due to recent RNC security concerns near and around the boathouse, the CRF Safety Committee has decided, out of an abundance of caution, to close the docks and facility Wednesday and Thursday, July 20-21, 2016. 

CRF has received reports of several groups, including an active anarchist group, congregating at and intending to cause problems around the Settler's Landing/Irish Town Bend/Franklin Hill area. Therefore, the boathouse gate will remain closed until Friday morning. 

Please note, to our knowledge no incidents have occurred at CRF or on the peninsula. This decision is based on information recently obtained from local and federal law enforcement and from our local stakeholders. Merwin's Wharf, the Crooked River Skate Park, and other local establishments are also closed. 

All WRRA Rowing Programs are cancelled while the boathouse is closed.  

Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding over the next two days.
