Join LPRA!

Are you an experienced rower?  or, have you completed a Learn-to-Row class?  Then what are you waiting for?  

Become a member and enjoy rowing at beautiful Lake Purdy year-round.  Members have access to club boats appropriate to their level of ability, as well as club events and activities.  

If you haven’t visited LPRA,  contact us and we’ll happily arrange for a member to show you around. Then, to join, all you need to do is complete the online registration form.  Dues are just $28/month or $336 annually, with a one-time $100 infrastructure fee.  

Because LPRA is a nonprofit with no paid staff, all members are encouraged to volunteer their time and talents to help the club succeed and thrive.   Dues are intended to cover direct expenses including insurance, property, security, utilities, equipment, facilities, maintenance, and services.  

Membership is open to all qualified rowers without discrimination on the basis of age, race, creed, color, gender, sexual orientation or disability.
