Good morning,

In this email (details below):

  1. Uniform Store Open

  2. Pre-Season Pasta Dinner

  3. Tag Days Saturday
  4. Swim Test Sunday

  5. Boathouse Workday

  6. VASRA Workday

1. NEW: Uniform Store Is Open: The WTW Crew Team uniform store is now open at https://wtwcrew.itemorder.com/sale. Orders must be placed by January 20, 2020.

Mandatory items for purchase are the Unisuit and Cold Weather Training Top. Unis and tops are gender-specific, so make sure you order the correct gender uni and top for your rower. Optional items are the Visor, Stevenson weathershirt, and BlastPant.

The weathershirt is monogrammable for an extra charge of $6.

Members of the men’s team who have unisuits and Cold Weather Training Tops from previous years that fit are not required to buy new ones. However, all women rowers will need to buy a new Unisuit and a Cold Weather Training Top because the style of both has changed this year.

If you’re not sure what size to order for your athlete, samples will be available to try on during Tag Day on January 11 at 8703 Braeburn Dr., Annandale, VA 22003. If you cannot make this date, contact Uniform/Spirit wear chair Monica Perry  at wtwcrewsportswear@gmail.com to schedule some time to try on the sample items.

Uniforms will be delivered to the Uniform/Spirit Wear Chair and will be distributed upon arrival.

Again, the deadline to order is January 20, 2020! So get your order in today!

2. REMINDER: Pre-Season Pasta Dinner, Is Tomorrow Friday January 10: Please sign up for tomorrow’s pre-season pasta dinner and consider contributing an entree. The Woodson Crew team leadership council this year has helped organize a pre-season pasta dinner, modeled on the ones we will have on Fridays before home regattas. Families should go here to get details, sign up and note what they will bring. 

3. REMINDER: Tag Day This Saturday January 11: Please sign up now to fulfill your Tag Day requirement. The remaining dates are January 25, and February 1 and 8. All rowers and coxswains — including novices — are required to participate in some part of Tag Days. Returning rowers need to attend four Tag Day shifts and novice rowers must attend three shifts. Please sign up now.

4. NEW: Boathouse Workday February 15: Please Save the Date for a boathouse workday to prepare for our on-the-water season to begin. We’ll need volunteers to put launches in the water, get shells rigged and cleaned, organize the cox shed and more. We’ll also need a parent with a pickup truck to help getting fuel for the launches. Look for a sign-up genius soon.

5. NEW: VASRA Workday Orientation February 15: VASRA, our parent organization, helps prepare the course at Sandy Run and makes our regattas possible. Parents have a requirement to volunteer for VASRA duties to ensure that every season is a success. The first workday of the season will be February 15, and there is an afternoon session beginning at 1 PM. This is a great way to learn what is required of the ‘river rats’ volunteer corps which prepares and maintains the buoys, starting dock and finish line for our regattas. Visit VASRA.org to learn more.   

Thank you.
