Sam Leake Treasurer, and Director
Sam became interested in rowing in 1996. Having bought a couple of Maas Aeros, he started car topping to White Rock. While coordinating and coaching cycling and triathlons at the Baylor/Tom Landry Center Sam tried to interest that organization in crew. In 2002 John Mullen suggested they start a rowing club and community outreach at White Rock Lake. John had started Dallas Rowing Club at Bachman. Together they made a deal with the Dallas Park Department for a long term lease on what we now call the Boomerang Boathouse, then in 2007-8 the Filter Building, and what I am most honored to have named for me, the Sam Leake Boathouse. Sam has served as President, Chairman of the Board, and now treasurer.
