3. TAG DAYS: Saturdays: 19 Nov; 3 &10 Dec; 7 & 21 Jan

Largest fundraiser for WTW Crew, brings in over $20,000 annually. We need parents and crew members support to continue the success of Tag Days this season! Each rower can earn $100 in fundraising credit per tag day shift up to a maximum of $300 in 3 shifts. Parents can earn $50 in tag day credit for either driving during tag day or hosting a tag day at their home. There are single shifts and double shifts available. Please read the Sign-up Genius information carefully as to which shift you are signing up for. We are also looking for Tag Day hosts. If a parent signs up to host Tag Day at their home, the Tag Day coordinator will contact the parent in advance to provide all of the forms and guidance to set them up for a successful day.

Also - we are still looking for a Tag Day Coordinator to step up and take on this position for the 2017 / 2018 season next year. If you are interested, the current Tag Day Coordinator, Mary Claire Boucher (mcboucher@verizon.net), will be happy to answer questions and show you the ropes. It is a rewarding way to support the team in the off season and contribute significantly to WTW Crew’s financial success. This option is also available on the Sign-up Genius.

6. WTW Crew Spirit Wear Site is now OPEN and will close at midnight on 20 Nov. Orders should be available for pick up after 9 Dec., just in time for the holidays. Items not picked up will be delivered to the rowers at winter conditioning AFTER the break in January. NONE of the items from CCI are required to be purchased. This is optional spirit wear. The jacket that is on this site is not a rowing jacket.

There are new items that have been added from previous years: a long sleeve t-shirt (various colors), a windbreaker, a fleece vest, a full-zip sweatshirt, and a waterproof blanket. The bag is also new and has a different look from last year. The company discontinued the old bag. The CCI screenprinting site takes VISA, Mastercard and Discover. If you are concerned about sizing, Tu’lann has some items that can be tried on.

The uniform and splash jackets are made by JL Racing and will be available at a later time. There will also be rowing attire available from the JL site. We will send that link when it becomes available. It will not be before the break.

If there are questions, please call Tu’lann von Christierson at (703) 426-2595 or email tulannvonc@cox.net.
