The spring parents meeting will now be held on TUESDAY, MARCH 19TH AT 7PM IN THE SCHOOL CAFETERIA. This meeting is very important for novice parents, as we outline the outdoor season and present the budget. I will post the budget here on the blog and would encourage all parents to print it off and bring it to the meeting.

The MANDATORY club safety meeting will be held on SUNDAY, APRIL 7TH at 10am. You won’t be allowed on the water if you aren’t there. I don’t have any information on how long it will be. Note the Docks are still scheduled to go in the day before, on the 6th….although I suspect if we get some crazy warm weather, this date may change. As always, stay tuned!

Finally, we are a little over a month away from Chile Cookoff. Sheri Henderson has stepped forward to organize it again and will be looking for a lot of help from parents. If interested, please let me know. I can tell you that the organizers had a blast last year and it’s a great way to immerse yourselves in the team!! Tickets will be available soon after the break. Here’s how it works: Each rower’s family will be responsible for buying 5 tickets to the Chili Cookoff (it was 6 tickets last year, but with more rowers, we dropped the requirement by one). We sell you the tickets for $15 each ($75 total-cash, or cheque made out to Westdale Rowing). You then keep whatever you need for yourselves, and/or sell the tickets to friends/family/co-workers for $20 each. If you need more, it works on the same principal, buying iffnus for $15 each.

Questions? As always, ask away!
