TUESDAY AM

First, I COMPLETELY echo Mike’s thoughts in the previous post. What an effort by the parents this week! In my only ride on the other side of the canal (the one where I had a run-in with a drone), the Westdale tent CLEARLY out-cheered any of the other tents. It was awesome—thank you for helping to make the regatta experience a great one for everybody!! Welland recap to follow at some point!

For Tuesday, I need everybody there whether you’re scheduled to row or not. I’ll put Tuesday boatings here, then the rest of the week will follow tomorrow. It’s a busy week that includes CSSRA entries due tomorrow night, and there City Champs Saturday followed by the christening of the new boats after Cities. I will be meeting with some of you after practice on Tuesday.

A Big Shout Out to the Westdale Parents!

I want to pass on a big thanks to the Westdale parents for all of your organizing and help you gave the coaches and athletes this weekend.

Your help in launching athletes, collecting blades, tracking down lost athletes and helping find lost IDs was greatly appreciated.  It helped reduce the stress level of all three coaches and allowed us to focus on coaching.

The coaches especially appreciated the new prescient food delivery service.  One minute you are thinking you are a bit hungry and then out of nowhere a parent rides up on a bike up with a hot breakfast sandwich or lunch.   If this takes off then Uber better look out.

You have amazing kids and the support you give us makes every regatta a tremendous experience.

Once again, thanks!
