Practice Bus sign-up, Tag Day reminder

In less than 3 weeks the crew team will be on the water! Will your rower/coxswain be riding the practice shuttle bus?

We are trying to gauge interest / commitment for the incredibly convenient and safe crew practice bus that will run for 43 days (Mondays thru Thursdays) of on-the-water practice. It leaves Woodson from the Whitacre Road side of school at 3:30 and returns with tired hungry rowers/coxswains at 7pm.

There is also an opportunity to enjoy the same convenience during Spring Break (which may be a separate charge, depending on how this survey turns out)! So on this sign-up, please respond in BOTH sections no later than Tuesday February 6th.

The number of interested bus riders will determine both the cost (the more bus riders we have, the cheaper it will be) and the number of times each family has to chaperone it. Once you’ve signed up, look for an email on February 7th with final information about cost and deadlines!

If the bus reaches capacity- priority is by sign-up-- first come, first served. Don’t miss out!

REMINDER: Our next Tag Day is this Saturday, February 3rd. The forecast is calling for a low of 30 and a high of 38, but no rain or snow. Please dress warmly (hats, gloves, coats--not shorts)!

Sign-up for Tag Days here! Three Tag Day shifts are left and we are ¾’s of the way to our Tag Day goal. Reviewing the sign-up sheet for February 3rd shows there is plenty of space left. Returning rowers/coxswains are reminded that they are required to do four (4) Tag Day shifts this year. If they did not do a Craft Show shift, they can make that up by doing another Tag Day. New rowers/coxswains are required to do three (3) shifts either Tag Day or Craft Show.

Because our long term success is so dependent on Tag Days, we are offering an incentive to those who have completed their Craft Show and Tag Day requirements. Attend another Tag Day shift and you name will be put into a drawing to receive a Chipotle gift certificate ($10.00). One winner per remaining Tag Day shift. Once Tag Days are complete, those that did extra shifts will have their name put in a hat to receive a donated $50.00 gift certificate. So as an example, volunteer completed rowers/coxswains, sign-up for the three remaining shifts and you have three (3) chances to earn $50.00
