1. REMINDER: Parent Away Regatta Meeting next Wednesday, March 13th from 7-9pm in WT Woodson Cafeteria B. We will provide important information regarding Away Regattas and when you arrive we will provide you with your volunteer requirements credit status. Our first away regatta, St. Andrews, is less than a month away on March 30th.

2. REMINDER: Team Pictures at the river next Friday, March 15th - athletes need their uniform. You can pre-order online at lifetouchsports.com with code MJ078018X0 through Wednesday (March 6th) or you can send in the order form and check with your student-athlete on March 15th.

3. REMINDER: Have you signed up for your VASRA volunteer requirement yet? Please sign-up here. All shifts on this signup below take place at regattas held at Sandy Run, 10450 Van Thompson Road, Fairfax Station.

We have many boat driver positions still open. If you haven’t taken Launch Boat Driver training, there is training on March 16th which you can sign-up for below in #3.

We are fortunate this year to have many new families and ask at this time that each family sign up for one VASRA volunteer slot. If we do need to impose our 2nd volunteer requirement, the team will be informed.

There are several dates, times, and locations within the park. (Please note: shifts with no ending times go until the work is done) Some jobs require a level of physical fitness or skill. Please check this link before you sign up to make sure you know what you are signing up for.

4. REMINDER: Launch Boat Driver Training on March 16th from noon-2pm. If you're interested in driving a launch boat during one of our regattas, this is the training for you. It will qualify you for the VASRA driver jobs which are assigned to each participating team and MUST be filled (or our team is fined and the regatta may not run smoothly). You will notice in the VASRA Volunteer sign-ups above, WTW Crew has many driver positions to fill. Being a Launch Driver gets you the best seat in the house at regattas! All are welcome and anyone can learn. Sign-up here

5. REMINDER: Still looking for help finding a venue for our End of Year Party. We are already making plans for our end of year awards banquet and annual meeting of the association. We have targeted May 31st as the best date for the team; however, space at Woodson or Frost MS are not available. We are still looking for suggestions for a community space (community center, corporate meeting rooms, etc.) that can accommodate approximately 200 people, with A/V capability, and a breakout room. If you have suggestions for a space that we can use, preferably for free, please contact wtwcrewsecretary@gmail.com.
