We will meet at our outdoor facility located at:
13205 Tschiffely Mill Rd
Poolesville, MD 20837

Please drop your rowers off just outside the yellow house on Tschiffley Rd. Rowers should then use the staircase closer to River Rd. to walk down to where out boats are stored. We will start promptly at 5:00. Please be careful driving as the road is bumpy and made of gravel. Pickup is at the same location at 7:30.

If you would like to observe the practice please park on the other side of the creek and watch from Riley's Lock or the towpath that follows the Potomac.
