1. Winter conditioning began last Thursday for returning rowers. It was great seeing all who attended, the enthusiasm and the excitement of reconnecting with their teammates and beloved ergs! Thank you to the Kutia family for installing the new shock cords on all the slides Friday evening. Thank you also to all who participated in the first Tag Day. We were able to cover nine routes and raised just under $2500. A special thanks to Ms. Eleanor Curtis (Nikki's Mom) who jumped in and went door-to-door (just like a rower) because we lacked enough rowers. Remember most proceeds from Tag Day fundraisers go directly to new gear. That new shell is a long way off. We had a lot of male rowers participate on Saturday, but not as many female rowers….we still have more Tag Days to meet your shift requirements so let’s all sign up.

2. REMINDER: The Woodson Crew Spirit Wear site closes at midnight TONIGHT, November 20th. Orders should be available for distribution before Christmas. This is optional spirit wear, none of the items from this site are required to be purchased. There are new items that have been added from previous years including a soft-shelled jacket with hood requested by student-athletes. The CCI screenprinting site takes VISA, Mastercard, and Discover. The uniform and splash jackets are made by JL Racing and will be available at a later date. There will also be rowing attire available from the JL site. We will send that link when it becomes ‘available. If you have questions, please email Babette Korn at gwkorn@yahoo.com.

3. REMINDER: Sign-up for Tag Days! The next Tag Day is December 2nd. Returning rowers are reminded that they are required to do four (4) Tag Day shifts this year and new rowers are required to do three (3). If you missed supporting the Craft Show, you can make up ‘this miss’ by doing an additional Tag Day. If you don’t complete your Tag Day shifts, you will pay a financial penalty so please sign-up.

4. NEW: Thank-Scrip-ing Day, Black Friday and Cyber Monday Thank-Scrip-ing!!
The Holiday Scrip Store will be open today, November 20, 2017 through December 10, 2017. December 10th is the December deadline for December Scrip orders to ensure delivery before winter break.
