3. REMAINING TAG DAYS: 7 & 21 Jan (Saturdays)

If you haven’t earned your fundraising credits, there are still two more Tag Days you can sign up for. 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 date and shift you are signing up for. We are also looking for a Tag Day host for 21 Jan. 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.
