I’m crunching numbers for the outdoor season. If you have any friends that are considering rowing then please get them to come out to practice.
We could use two more novice women and a novice coxie. This would help us be able to boat a good combination of crews.
We are 4 days this week. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. No practice on Friday.
The days to being on the water are ticking by and it won’t be long before your breathing that morning air. In the meantime we are indoors on the erg preparing.

Everyone that is committing to the outdoor season needs to send an email to email@example.com.
I need to be able to get an idea as to what training plan will need to be in place and what our numbers will be. We have almost a 50/50 split of experienced and novices which will mean different training plans for each.
If you have any friends that are interested then please bring them out to practice.
For any of the experienced athletes from last year that we have not seen yet, please consider coming out. We are down to one coxie and we’ll need two most days. Also will need a novice coxie. So if you can interest anyone than bring them out.
The next few weeks are going to start to be hectic. We are weeks away from being on the water not months. There is a lot to go over between now and the end of March.
Also be prepared that there a few mandatory meetings that will be done in the next week or two.
One is the mandatory rowing safety video. We’ll dedicate a practice to this which means no erging that day,
Second is the mandatory swim test. Anyone with current Bronze Medallion certification is exempt. Provide a photo of you certificate.
This test must be done for you to get on the water. So please do not miss it when it is scheduled.
Practices this week are Monday,Tuesday,Wednesday and Friday. No Thursday practice.

As you know, I am no longer at Westdale, and sadly will not be seeing you folks at practice any longer. (Sorry about the unceremonious goodbye, everything happened very last minute!)
It was a pleasure to meet all of you, and I wish you the best of luck for the on water season! You’re in good hands!
