NEW: Here is a link to photos from Nationals. Thank you Mary Claire! We were also notified that the officials at the Scholastic Rowing Association National Championships ultimately found the object that caused the loss of the rudder and skeg of our Women’s Lightweight 8+ during their heat, resulting in their inability to qualify for finals (they were clearly in second in a two to finals heat). It was a roughly four foot long piece of waterlogged wood.

UPDATE: Instead of 15 June, the last Scrip Orders for the season will be due on 5 June. This way Joan will have the cards and can distribute them at the banquet on the 10 June. Gift cards make good Graduation Gifts! Contact Joan Fisher for the enrollment code and for full details click here.

  • Next Year’s WTW Crew Boosters Positions. We are still looking for parents to help share the load so our team is supported and can thrive. Open positions can be seen here. If you are interested in these positions, or any others, please contact President Pamela Sprouse (wtwcrewpresident@gmail.com) or members of the WTW Crew Boosters Nominating Committee, Benton Fisher and Rebecca Phalan. Elections will be held at the year-end Crew Awards Banquet on 10 June. 
  • Men’s Captain Applications are due today, 1 June. Instructions can be found here

NEW: If you are thinking about how to stay fit over the summer, rowing camps and programs are a great option. Although the WTW Crew Boosters don’t endorse any in particular, we have many listed on our Rowing Camps page and there are programs run out of Sandy Run such as Resilient Rowing and Occoquan Boat Club.
