FRIDAY/SATURDAY BOATINGS

Here are the boatings for Friday and Saturday. Water is still not warm enough for small boats, so our options are still limited when we have three extra bodies! Those of you listed as coach boat or on split rows, please be there because we may wind up needing you.
You will notice a Saturday row. There are only two full practice Saturdays left–thus week and next week. All other Saturdays, we will either be loading for a regatta, or AT a regatta.
Please check with me before launching coach boats–there is a new protocol because the docks are in different positions. (I will be at my car until about 5:15 for wine delivery).
When launching your rowing shells, DO NOT ALLOW THE BOW OR STERN TO OVER-EXTEND ON THE SHORE SIDE!! It is very shallow there. Any boats seen doing this will be pulled off the water and not allowed to row that day.

SATURDAY OFF: Max, Ella, Maddy T
Coach boat to start: Alia with Mike. Will switch halfway through.

CHILI COOKOFF WINE

I sent an e-mail on this, but following up here just in case the e-mail wasn’t received. Sheri will be collecting the Chili Cookout wine from me on Friday, so there are two opportunities left to get it to us. I will be at the school again at 6:20 on Thursday morning. We are at Leander at 5:10 on Friday morning, and I can also collect it there. We’re in the home stretch for this big fundraiser–it sounds like it’s going to be awesome!! Or is that, “Oarsome”!!!

THE DOCKS ARE FIXED!

Given the late hour, we will stick to our plan of training at the school at 6:30 on Thursday, then plan on Friday and Saturday at Leander.

Note: There will be a new launching procedure. I will find out more about this before Friday AM. The water still has not reached the 5 degree threshold for small boats, but I suspect after an extended run of warmer weather, that this may change very soon.

TUESDAY

We are at the school on Tuesday morning at 6:30 for practice, ad likely for the rest of the week. Please make every effort to get to these sessions and have a good, solid week of training. We’re already going to be well behind in technique….let’s not fall behind in fitness as well.
