MONDAY PROCEDURE + TUESDAY, WEDNESDAY, THURSDAY BOATINGS!

First, congratulations on the final Fortino’s fundraiser! I will let you know what the final tally is as soon as I know, but things were clicking along nicely today it seemed, with all tills having one of our rowers! The engagement with the community was awesome and I heard a lot of questions. Well done! The generosity of the community astounds me every time!

Below are details on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Note, there is one novice off for each of Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. These are based on band requirements, plus those who have some experience rowing. Any questions, please ask.

MONDAY
We will start at 7AM. We will go through the process of putting boats on the water and all the prep required. Those procedures are:
–prepare coach boats;
–get oars out;
–a QUICK warmup featuring lunge/twist walks;
–hands on the boat you’re assigned to;
–put it on stretchers and do a quick check of nuts and bolts;
–launch boats!
When we come back in, the reverse happens, except that all boats need to be cleaned with soap inside and out and quickly washed off. After the boat is put away, we’ll debrief for three minutes, then do sprints in the park.
(Not to experienced rowers: Mac rigged the Bailey today. If the Love is not rigged, I would like this rigged at some point Monday)
We MAY push off the dock on Monday and row a little bit. It all depends on who is registered and what the weather is like. If the weather isn’t great, we will try to do some dockside instruction where the novices can actually sit in a boat. It will be a very helpful day for all of us.

MESSAGE FROM BECCA!!

Hey everyone!!! As mentioned at the meeting the other week, we are considering organizing a small lip sync battle at the chilli cook off to spice things up a little. If you are interested in putting together a performance, please text or email me by April 15th with your name, anyone else who will be in your group, and the song you would like to do and I will confirm it with Peter. We might have limited spots depending on how many people want to sign up. If you do sign up, make sure you are sure of it because we don’t want people backing out the day of. As well I’ll be expecting full costume and choreography! We want it to be exciting!! Any rowers, parents or coaches 😉 are welcome to sign up!

REGISTRATIONS

Just chasing down registrations. I have the following names. If you are NOT on this list, but have registered, please let me know ASAP–you may be listed as club. If you are not in this list and have not registered, please do it now because you’re now in danger of not being able to row on Tuesday. Even if you register today, you may not be on the list by Tuesday. If you aren’t on the list Tuesday, no row.

Maddy B, Charlotte, Meegan, Maura, Sequoia, Maddy D, Liam, Ella, Ryann, Maddy T, Alia, Max, Geon, Robin
