Adding News Guidelines

Would you like to add a news article? Great!  We would love it if you did. All submissions require approval before publication so here are some editorial guidelines:


Latest News is meant for articles that are of interest to the gay rowing community and the GLRF community.  Topics of interest might include:


  • how your club is doing something for gay rowing or being supportive of the gay community,
  • what you as a GLRF member are doing for the rowing community,
  • if your club is sending a squad or team to compete at a gay-focused regatta,
  • if your club or team is featured in the gay media.


What may not get past the editorial desk are stories that are club-centric (gay or straight) such as coming in first at such and such regatta or hosting a fundraiser or enjoying an end of season shrimp on the barbie.  We do have an outlet for that and really encourage GLRF members to explore that: create a blog on GLRF for your club!


Want to run an article idea past the editorial first? Sure! Just send a PM to glrfcentral!

GLRF hosts booth at the 2015 San Diego Crew Classic


Great weather and happy folks made for another successful Crew Classic.  Click here to see all the images from the event, and to upload your own.
06 April 2015 - San Diego; GLRF once again hosted a vendor's booth at the 2015 San Diego Crew Classic, 28 - 29 March.  The entries were slightly lighter this year due to a scheduling conflict with the women's Pac-12 Challenge.  Even so, crews from all over North America converged in San Diego for a weekend of typical California rowing: sunshine and calm water.

It was great to see GLRF members from both the East and West coast who stopped by to say hello and catch up.

This year marked the launch of the latest GLRF t-shirts, Port Curious and Starboard Curious.  The t-shirt design was a result of a rowing good samaritan who had stopped by the GLRF booth at the 2014 Head of the Charles.  He declared that he had an idea for a shirt and he would give it to us for free if we promised to make the shirt.  We said we might, if we knew the concept.  After he revealed the idea, we smiled and said, yep, you have our word.

Fast forward to the 2015 Crew Classic where the shirts were put on display and guess who stops by but the rowing good samaritan who jumped with delight at seeing the shirts on display.  Needless to say, we were happy to wish him well with a complimentary shirt and pride in our chest that we kept our promise.

Credit for the shirts must also go out to GLRF member Bob715 who did the final editing for the back of the shirt that made it so wildly popular among the booth visitors:


Ever think about ... switching sides?

GLRF doesn't usually reveal our members' true identities but we are happy to give a hint to those rowing folks in the know.  He signs his emails as BBBBBB!
