  1. Restaurant Night TOMORROW, TUESDAY DECEMBER 1: Grab a bite and help Woodson Crew: Tomorrow night, plan to pick up dinner from Noodles & Co on Main Street in Fairfax to give the team another fundraising boost! Order online with the code GIVING50 or pick up in person between 4 and 8 PM to make sure your dinner helps the team.

    And thank you to everyone who turned out for our Chipotle restaurant night last week!

  2. BID TODAY — Silent Auction: Check out the selection of creative gifts for friends and family at the first ever Woodson Crew Virtual Silent Auction. Find a holiday surprise or treat yourself to a beautiful series of custom flower arrangements — or a week at a lakefront retreat. Celebrate your athlete with a Woodson Rowing oar to hang on the wall! And don’t forget to buy a ticket for the raffle to win an Apple Watch!

    The auction is live now and bidding closes this Friday, December 4. Please share this link with family and friends: https://www.32auctions.com/woodsoncrew

    Thanks to our sponsor Donovan & Wagner, P.C. as well as our incredible volunteers, every dollar raised will benefit the Woodson crew boosters to help us have a successful season.

  3. Spirit Wear: Be sure to pick up a gift for your athlete in the Woodson Rowing Team Store. It’s a great way to shop safely and support Woodson Crew at the same time. And share the link with family when they ask what to get your kids for Christmas: https://teamlocker.squadlocker.com/#/lockers/wt-woodson-crew 

  4. Volunteer Help: Don’t forget, we still need help with other fundraising events including future restaurant nights or helping to put on a Zoom trivia night fundraiser. We are also gearing up for Valentine’s Day fundraiser. If you are interested in supporting any of these events, we would love to hear from you. Contact our Fundraising chair, Amelia DeSorrento at wtwcrewfundraising@gmail.com.

  5. Schedule: As you probably have learned from various updates from Woodson and VHSL, the schedule for high school sports looks like this:

    • Season 1/Winter sports — December 14 - February 20
    • Season 2/Fall sports — February 15 - May 1
    • Season 3/Spring sports — April 12 - June 26 (This includes rowing)

    The Crew Boosters board is continuing to work on this schedule with our parent organization, VASRA, and taking our cues from US Rowing which governs our sport.

  6. Yellow Days: We’ve added two more weeks of Yellow Days practice this Wednesday 12/2 and next Wednesday 12/9. Sign up here.

  7. Don’t Forget — Amazon Smile: As you make your way through your holiday shopping, don’t forget you can support Woodson Crew through Amazon Smile.
