A first check of the weather for next week. Monday looks promising, but Tuesday & Wednesday will more than likely be no rows with snow and windy conditions. Please be at Leander at 5:10AM.
In consultation with Greg and Jake, we’ve come up with the following set of guidelines for pre-April 1 rowing.
1. We’re not allowed (rightly), to send out anything smaller than a 4+ or a 4x.
2. Due to the fact there will only likely be a small group of St. Mary’s rowers out there, we are keeping our group to EITHER an 8+, or a 4+ and a 4x….so only nine of you will be there on any given day during the pre-April period. If you aren’t scheduled on the water, please go to the school for 6:30.
The following ten plus two coxies, are allowed to row. I need to confirm Zaiga and Molly still with the club, so I’ve held you both out of Monday. You may switch around with one another, given that these are mixed crews. The goals for these rows are to put in a bunch of pre-season MILES (MILES MAKE CHAMPIONS). We will also set the routine so that you can lead the novices through them on April the 1st. The routine will be:
5:10: Arrive, coach boat assembly, oars/sculls
5:25: Hands on the boat
5:30: Hull hits the water
7:10: Off the water, boat cleaned, put away, oars away, coach boat away, quick chat
7:30: Sprints in the park
7:45: End of practice
CLEARED TO ROW
NEED TO CONFIRM
***NOTE*** If we miss a day for weather, I will make the call the night before. That lineup will then move to the following day and everything just gets shifted one day forward.
