2019 Oak Ridge Cardinal Invitational

The Oak Ridge Rowing Association holds and hosts regattas (races) for teams from all over the country. The participants may be high-schools, colleges, clubs, adults or a mix of all of these groups.  The quality of our course, a track record of quality events (since 1978) and a willingness on the part of the community to support such events, are prime reasons for staging many prestigious regattas in Oak Ridge.

Whether you know very little about the sport of rowing or are a passionate follower of the sport, this is your chance to get involved!  You will be joining a team of volunteers who enjoy welcoming crews and spectators to the Oak Ridge-Knoxville metro area and work to provide a wonderful regatta experience so please join us!

The University of Louisville hosted Cardinal Invitational Regatta will be on Melton Lake!  This DI Women's Rowing Regatta is a very competitive way to kick off the spring season. 


Our venue is outdoors, so dress anticipating inclement weather and the likelihood of getting wet.  Wear layered and waterproof clothing and don't forget a hat and sunscreen!  Docks may become slippery so wear appropriate footwear.  Do not wear any red clothing while performing jobs near the course as a red flag is used to stop a race. 

 

On the day of the event please sign in at the regatta 'Volunteer' tent.  We will make sure you get to your zone assignment instructions.  All volunteer times are estimates.  The volunteer job may possibly run longer or shorter than the posted time (weather delays are common).  Your understanding is appreciated.  

Have fun and thanks for volunteering!  We look forward to seeing you at the regatta!
