General Guidelines for Equipment Reservations

  • Reservation time should be for the rowing time (dock to dock) and not include muster or time to return the equipment. This allows for hot seating a boat and the schedule to reflect when the equipment is being used.
  • Cancel a reservation any time the equipment will not be used and as early as possible. This allows others the opportunity to use it.
    • If the reservation was a recurring items you can cancel just a single occurrence similar to MS Outlook.
  • Add the list of the crew members, using first and last names, in the “Title” field of the reservation.
    • All members of the crew must be registered members of the club prior to the scheduled row.
  • Reservations at this time are only for two months.
    • This is to better see 1) where we may need to make adjustments to the registration process, and 2) where there may be equipment shortages at high demand times (typically M-TH evenings).
    • Best practice to maximize the use of club equipment is to allow for two reservations for a boat at peak times (e.g. weekday evening a boat can be taken out twice).
      • If you are unable to reserve equipment during peak times because current bookings do not accommodate equipment being used twice, please email directors@desmoinesrowing.org with your request.
