Parent Letter 3/27/17


Good morning Parents,

The dock is in and we are on the water for our 13th season.  Just a few items for this week

1.) Practice at the WBC:   Practice will be held at the Wyandotte Boat Club during the week from 6:00-8:30PM and on Saturdays from 8-11AM.  When dropping your rowers off, please drop them off on Pine Street.  Please stay out of the WBC parking lot unless you are planning on using the lounge while your rower is at practice.  Please note, the lounge is closed on Mondays.

2.) Ad Sale:  The ad sale ends this Saturday April 1st.  So far the team has sold just under $2000.00 in Ads.  This is about 1/2 of what we normally sell.  The goal is $125 per rower.  Rowers are responsible for ads.  What is not sold will be billed to the rowers individually.  This is a great way to cover the cost of the season without monies coming out of your own pocket.  All ads sold beyond $125 are applied at 80% to a rower’s individual account.

3.) Spring Break Practice times at the WBC:  We will be practicing twice per day over spring break which begins on Monday April 3rd.  Our competition that travels to camp will be rowing 3 times per day!  Water time over break is crucial to our team’s success.  Practice times over spring break will be as follows:   7am-9am and then again from 10am-noon.  With extended period of time at practice please send your rower with a snack to enjoy during the break and remind them to bring a change of clothes.

4.) Lightweights:  As of this afternoon most of our lightweights have completed this test.  For those few that haven’t, the deadline is this Friday.  Lightweight for girls is 130lbs max and 150lbs max for boy

5.) Website:  I’m in the process of rebuilding my website.  I originally built it in 2003.  Although I’ve kept the information updated the format was really out of date.   Sorry for the inconvenience.  Hopefully I’ll have it done by the end of the week. 


If you have any questions please contact me,


Mr. Milewski
