Away Regatta Information, Friday Dinner, St. Andrews Details, JL Racing Store, Spring Break

NEW: We had a great Away Regatta Parent Meeting last night. Here is the link to the slides presented. Packets for Stotesbury and Nationals are planned to be distributed in the next week or two. All packets and payments are due back no later than 5 May.

The pre-regatta dinner tomorrow is at the boathouse. Instead of food assignments for 31 March, there is an additional $5.00/per student-athlete fee for the pizza at the boathouse. If you haven’t paid the $5.00, please ensure student-athletes bring the money to practice tomorrow. The student-athletes will be de-rigging and loading the boats onto the trailer and then eating dinner before the end of normal practice time. The bus and pick-up time may be slightly delayed, but the coaches are aiming to stay on normal practice schedule.

NEW: If you and your student-athlete have not signed and returned the FCPS Participation Policy Student Activity Form, please ensure you and your student-athlete sign it and return it at the next practice or bring it to St. Andrews. Team Captain Gwen Cameron is collecting them. If you don’t have the form, here it is. It is pages 7-9 on this link from FCPS. 

UPDATES: Our first away regatta of the season is at St. Andrews this Saturday. This link has all of the information you need to prepare for the trip, what to bring, schedule for the day, and contact information. The buses will depart Woodson HS at 7:30am (was previously 7am). All students should be at Woodson HS by 7:15am. If a student will be bringing medication, please ensure they come with a signed Student Medication Form and meds in a plastic bag marked with their name.

We are trying to get a head count for St. Andrew’s this weekend for food planning purposes. We are also still looking for food tent volunteers at St. Andrews. Please sign-up here if parent(s) are attending (volunteering or not) this Saturday, 1 April.

The JL racing store is currently open and will close at midnight on 3 April. If you missed placing your order for a splash jacket, this is the time to order. You can also order an extra uni or tech shirt. The estimated ship date is 10 May with estimated delivery on 17 May. This will be your last chance to order for this season. The JL site may not be open again until January 2018. Please pay special attention when inputting payment information at checkout. If the transaction does not lead you to a confirmation screen, the order did not go through and please double check the information that you entered. Scroll down the middle of the page and select the Woodson team store. If there are questions, email the Uniform/Spirit Wear Coordinator, Tu’lann von Christierson, at tulannvonc@cox.net, (703) 426-2595.
