1. THANK YOU: Craft Show: A huge thank you to all the parent and athlete volunteers who helped make our Craft Show Saturday a success. It was a huge effort to coordinate scores of vendors along with the bake sale, concession stand and other logistics. Thanks to everyone who pitched in — and special thanks to Lesley Kowalski and Yelena Jones for overall coordination of the Craft Show and vendors.

We ask that anyone who left cake platters (and a really nice extension cord) come pick them up on Wednesday evening at 7pm as we gather for the Board Meeting. The items will be just outside the door of C-123 at Woodson. Thank you for letting us borrow them!

2. REMINDER: Registration is Open — Just over two weeks until Winter Conditioning! Dues increase on Nov. 20, so take advantage of last years rates! There are nine steps to registration and steps 1-5 must be completed no later than November 20th to participate in Winter Conditioning. Full registration must be completed no later than February 20th to participate in on-the-water activities. You can learn about registration and the Crew season from the Parent Season Kick-off presentation which is available on the website. Finally, the nine steps, links to register and to all the relevant forms, and all the deadlines are outlined on our website

If you have questions about this process, please contact the W.T. Woodson Crew Membership team at wtwcrewmembership@gmail.com.

3. REMINDER: Fall Boathouse Workday: We need rowers and some parents to volunteer to make sure we’re prepared for a great start when we’re back on the water in February. The fall boathouse workday will be from 9 to noon on November 16th. Sign up here to volunteer. 

4. REMINDER: Tag Days Sign-Up: This door-to-door fundraising outreach spreads the word about Woodson Crew, helps the athletes bond and provides valuable funds to support our team. All athletes are required to participate in some part of Tag Days. We will soon be opening sign-ups to participate and to seek parent hosts for each Tag Day. There is one remaining parent host slot available. If you are interested in hosting a Tag Day at your home, please contact Susan Burger at wtwcrewvolunteer@gmail.com  Please sign up now to participate in Tag Days. They happen Saturdays throughout the winter: November 16 and 23, December 7, January 11 and 25, and February 1 and 8.

5. REMINDER: Woodson Crew Fundraising at A.C. Moore AND Flippin’ Pizza: Help the Crew Team by shopping at A.C. Moore or eating pizza — or both! This Friday, November 8, bring this flyer with you to A.C. Moore all day and Woodson Crew receives a donation from your purchase. And the next day, Saturday, November 9, head over to Flippin’ Pizza with this flyer (and mention it on the phone if ordering ahead) and the team benefits as well. 

6. SAVE THE DATE: Winter Conditioning: Now that registration is open, athletes can focus on winter conditioning between now and when we can get back on the water in February. Athletes will workout at the school through the fall and winter beginning November 21st for returning rowers, and December 2nd for new rowers. 

7. REMINDER: Uniform Update: If you ordered a uniform or tech shirt last season from our old vendor, JL Racing, please get in touch with WTW Crew sportswear chair Monica Perry at wtwcrewsportswear@gmail.com to coordinate picking it up. As we mentioned last week, we’ve changed vendors and will be updating the uniforms for the women’s team this year. These new uniforms and replacement uniforms for men’s team members will be available in the online store in the spring.

8. NEW: #GivingTuesday. We are excited to share that we will again be participating in a fundraising campaign for #GivingTuesday on December 3rd this year.

#GivingTuesday is a global giving movement that has been built by individuals, families, organizations, businesses and communities in countries around the world. Millions of people have come together to support and champion the causes they believe in and the communities in which they live. You can learn more at givingtuesday.org. Look for updates in next week’s email and help us spread the word so we can make a big impact for Woodson Crew this year.
