Parent Letter 4/19/17 – WBC Regatta





WBC Regatta: This week is our first race.  This regatta is more or less a scrimmage.  Sculling events race on Thursday at 6pm and sweep events are held on Saturday.  Those not in sculling events (basically novices) will practice while races are being run.  Races will start at 7:40am on Saturday which means rowers will need to be at the club by 7am.  A schedule of events and rowers is found below.


Invoices:  With fundraising season behind us, we can now put 100% of focus on rowing.  With racing starting this week, regatta expenses are right around the corner.  There are a few rowers that have monies due.  Invoices were handed out at practice last week.  Rowers need to have their outstanding invoice paid so they can race.


Midwest Regatta:  For several years alumni Abe Baydoun ran a bus company and gave us one heck of a deal on a bus to this regatta.  Unfortunately, Abe is out of the bus business.   We are going to need to rent some vans for this event.  Our team is just not large enough to make a charter bus feasible.  Several parents have mentioned to me that they are going to this regatta.  If you are going and you can take a few rowers it would greatly help us out.  If you could PLEASE contact me ASAP and let me know how many kids you can take, I can figure out the van situation.  If we don’t need to rent a van we can use the savings toward equipment and equipment repairs.  This year we are staying at the Red Roof Inn in Hebron, Ohio.  The hotel is roughly half-way between Zanesville & Columbus.  We will leave from Crestwood Friday morning May 12th, except for those taking the AP Human Geography & AP Econ Exams who will leave after the test.  We will be staying Friday and Saturday night.  We will return to Dearborn Heights Sunday afternoon.
