Welcome to the SoCo Crew
2014 – 2015 Season
Coach King suggests that you follow the Around the World
workout over winter break (go to the Rower’s Corner page).
Mid-Atlantic Erg Sprints
This event on January 31, 2015, will be the team’s first big test. This event draws roughly 1,000 competitors from across the region, and is a great way to see where you stand versus your peers before the season starts. Register online by January 4 and January 25 to save on fees. Check with your coaches about which events you should enter. http://www.ergsprints.com/
Thanks everyone for outstanding support for this year’s leaf raking fundraiser! A total of 58 athletes worked over two weekends to earn the team $3,200. We also managed to support every one of the customers’ requests despite the rainy Saturday on our second weekend. And several of the jobs were a real challenge — Team Dupray, in particular, filled 124 bags in a single 3-hour shift! Lots of our customers were grateful for our services and many insisted we contact them again next year. Here is one customer’s appreciative email:
I just wanted to send a quick note to compliment the crew ( ;-) ) that was at our house today. We have a lot of leaves and it’s a lot of work. But they finished it all, did a great job of it, and nicely placed all of the bags on the curb. And, it looked like they might have had some fun with it, too. We were a little hesitant to spend the money on something we essentially could do, but it was money well spent and we were glad the money will support the crew club.
Again, many thanks, and we hope to see you back next year.
