We have done our best to provide a comprehensive list of the safety measures and requirements for us to have a healthy, successful Open Row.

  • Coxswains and Stroke Seats will be required to wear masks on water.

  • Masks are encouraged at all times.

  • Properly dispose of any/all trash. 

  • Although MMC has taken steps to attempt to reduce the risk of transmission of the COVID-19 virus throughout the common practice area and Algonkian Park, your use of the these areas and your presence at them creates risks that you may contract the virus.

Therefore, as a condition to your participation in MMC, you agree that you are voluntarily assuming the risk of contracting the COVID-19 virus because of your presence and use of MMC equipment and Algonkian Park practice facilities. If you do not wish to assume such a risk, you should not participate in MMC Open Row
