While we have school today, unfortunately Sandy Run Regional Park is closed. Practice today is therefore canceled. Rowers are encouraged to use this opportunity to get it caught up/get ahead on school assignments. We will see your student athlete on the water Friday.

1. REMINDER: Saturday Practices start this weekend! Now that we are on the water, we have Saturday practices, but there is no bus service on Saturdays. Practice on Saturday is from 8:30-11am. Remember to dress warmly, wear appropriate athletic footwear (i.e. running shoes), and bring a large, full water bottle as the water at the river is not turned on yet. We encourage parents who are looking for carpool opportunities to or from practice (those whose student-athletes need rides and those who are willing to offer rides to student-athletes) to join the #carpool channel on our wt-woodson-crew.slack.com Slack page and share your needs or availability.

2. REMINDER: Parent Social this Friday, February 22nd from 7:30-10:30pm. Please sign-up here so we know what you are bringing. We hope you will come enjoy this relaxed social gathering before Regatta season kicks in! It's a great opportunity to meet and connect with Coaches and other Crew Parents (both seasoned and new!). Adults only. This is a heavy appetizer & dessert, BYO-adult beverage event!

There will also be a auction for four tickets in an executive suite (including food and drinks) to a Wizards vs. Timberwolves game on Sunday, March 3rd.

3. REMINDER: Practice Bus Chaperones. Every rider’s parents/guardians must sign-up to chaperone ONE day per each athlete. Most pressing, we still need a parent chaperone for next Tuesday, February 26th.

Sign-up here for Practice Bus Chaperone volunteer slots. For more information on chaperoning, you can find Practice Bus Chaperone Duties here. If you have further questions on the bus chaperone duties, please contact Laly Kassa, our Chaperone Coordinator at 703-403-4357 or via email at lalykassa@yahoo.com

4. REMINDER: VASRA Workday this Saturday, February 23rd. Thank you to those who signed up for the VASRA Workday. Please ensure you sign-in when you get to the river to ensure you get credit.

5. REMINDER: Spirit Wear Store Open. Woodson Crew Spirit Wear Store is available and orders must be placed by midnight, February 24th. Click on the link above to access the site. Items ordered will be available for distribution before the first regatta on March 23rd.

This is optional spirit wear; none of the items from this site are required to be purchased. Rowers and coxswains will find many useful items and parents are also encouraged to order items for themselves (hats, polos, T-shirt’s, fleece). Wearing Spirit Wear to regattas is a great way to identify other Woodson fans to cheer with.

If you have questions, please email Babette Korn at babskorn@gmail.com.

6. NEW: Congratulations! Please join us in congratulating James Mickey and Beau Sandino for earning their Eagle Scout!
