Rowing Events on the Redwood Shores Lagoon

Our lagoon here in Redwood Shores will once again be the site for Men’s and Women’s College Rowing teams in competition this Spring. These exciting sporting events offer a rare chance on the west coast to see top-ranked rowing teams power across the water. From the pedestrian overpass on Bridge Parkway or the parking lot or park on either end of the bridge, residents can catch the races and heats as they happen, free of charge.

Key events to look forward to in April & May on the Redwood Shores lagoon include the Stanford Invitational and Pac-12 Challenge events for Men’s Rowing (the Pac-12 Women’s Challenge took place earlier this year here in Redwood Shores,) and Big Row vs. Cal for both Men’s and Women’s Rowing competition.

Eggstravaganza 2015!

It’s time for the RSCA’s annual Eggstravaganza, held every year at Marlin Park in the center of Redwood Shores. Bring all your children and a basket for goodies to the park for the big Egg Hunt, where toddlers and young kids can seek out goodies hidden in the grass and playground. Also, the Easter Bunny will be there to lead off the Egg Hunt and later to pose for pictures with the boys and girls, so be sure to take along a camera as well!

The festivities begin at 1:00 PM on Saturday, March 28th at Marlin Park here in Redwood Shores.

Be sure to arrive early so that your child can line up in the right age category — the eggs disappear quickly, and the whistle begins exactly at 1:00, so be on time! (Please limit your children to 6 eggs each so that everyone can share.)

Our local RWC Police will also be available to provide voluntary FINGERPRINTING for children of parents who might wish to have this record for identification. Because a child’s appearance can change in a short time, fingerprinting can be the best way to identify a lost child. And parents, don’t forget your camera for photo opportunities with the Easter Bunny.

The Eggstravaganza is run by RSCA, and is a great place to sign up with our organization if you have not yet had a chance to do so. Please join in in making great events like this possible in Redwood Shores!

Redwood Shores 2015 Annual Meeting

February 11, 2015, 7:00 pm
at the Redwood Shores Library
399 Marine Pky at Bridge Pky (click for a map)

Please RSCA for its Annual Meeting and get the latest update on “The State of the Shores”.

Our guests will include San Mateo County District 4 Supervisor Warren Slocum, plus Redwood City Mayor (and Shores resident) Jeff Gee and Vice-Mayor (and former Shores resident) Rosanne Foust with a preview of the State of the City.

There will also be information on two big issues facing the Shores:

First is the continuing problems caused by roots of the older trees along the Shores parkways. The City will have an update on the progress of this work and other projects that may impact the Shores.

The Silicon Valley Clean Water Authority (SVCW) is the waste-water treatment plant on the Bay at the end of the Shores. (SVCW is also the source of the recycled water that is being used for landscaping in the Shores.) There is an old waste-water pipe running under the Shores that needs to be replaced, and SVCW will be providing a status report of options currently under review for this major project.

As always, we try to end our Annual Meeting presentation around 8:00 PM so that you can have time to ask questions or talk with our guests about issues of particular interest to you.

(RSCA will also elect its new Board of Directors.)

EARLY SPECIAL CONCERT
6:30-7:00pm

Come early and enjoy a special concert featuring several of our young Shores piano students.

RSCA provided initial and matching funds for the purchase of the grand piano that now graces RWS Library’s Community Room, and we are proud of this addition to our community library. We are pleased to take this opportunity to showcase the talents of just a few of the gifted young people who are able to take lessons on this wonderful instrument.

Your photos must be submitted no later than the end of the day Wednesday, December 17th, as our elves will be judging all applicants on Thursday, December 18. Sorry, no late applicants can be considered, as this is a lengthy process !
