Happy Veterans Day. If someone in your life served, thank them today.

1. REMINDER: Registration is Open — Just ten days until Winter Conditioning! AND discounted registration ends on Nov. 20, so sign up now! Remember, complete the first five steps of registration no later than November 20th to participate in Winter Conditioning and take advantage of last year’s rate. Rowers must complete the full registration process no later than February 20th to participate in on-the-water activities. Everything you need to know about registration and the Crew season — including exactly what forms need to be filled and where to deliver them as well as 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.

2. REMINDER: Tag Days Start This Saturday: All rowers and coxswains are required to participate in some part of Tag Days. Walking neighborhoods together helps our athletes spread the word about Crew, raise funds for the season and bond as a team. Please sign up now to participate in Tag Days. Again, the first Tag Day is this Saturday, November 16. The remaining dates are: November 23, December 7, January 11 and 25, and February 1 and 8. 

Please contact WTW Crew volunteer chair Susan Burger if you have questions about Tag Days at wtwcrewvolunteer@gmail.com  

3. REMINDER: Fall Boathouse Workday also this Saturday: We still need a few rowers to volunteer to make sure we’re prepared for a great start when we’re back on the water in February. Again, the fall boathouse workday is this Saturday, November 16th, from 9 to noon. Sign up here to volunteer. 

And if you still have a rental erg, please return it this Thursday, November 14, between 7 and 8 PM at the shed. Thank you!

4. NEW: Spirit Wear Store is Open: Whether you’re a parent cheering in the grandstand or an athlete walking the halls of Woodson, WTW Crew gear is always in style. The store closes 11/24 so order now to get some crew wear in your life by the holidays! Order here

And if you have questions about uniforms — or still want to pick up a uniform from last season — please get in touch with WTW Crew sportswear chair Monica Perry at wtwcrewsportswear@gmail.com to coordinate.

5. SAVE THE DATE: Winter Conditioning: Soon your athlete will be working out at the school weeknights in the afternoons/evenings through the fall and winter. Returning rowers will start November 21st and new rowers will report for Winter Conditioning on December 3rd. 

6. REMINDER: #GivingTuesday. We are reaching out to Crew Alumni, Friends and Family to join us in a fundraising campaign for #GivingTuesday on December 3rd this year. If you know someone with a connection to the sport of crew or the Woodson Crew team, share our campaign with them.

What is #GivingTuesday? We have Black Friday and Cyber Monday where we get lots of great deals. Why not have a holiday for giving back? #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. Learn more at givingtuesday.org
