2. MidAtlantic Erg Sprints: Registration is open for the 2017 MidAtlantic Erg Sprints on 4 Feb. This is the world’s second largest indoor rowing competition & THE largest for high school athletes. They welcome athletes of all ages and levels who want to compete. http://ergsprints.com.

If you register by 7 Jan., you get a discount. Athletes should talk to their coaches this week, if they haven’t already, about what events to enter and then register.

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.  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.
