  1. URGENT: Volunteers Needed
  2. Pre-Regatta Dinner Assignments
  3. Darrell Winslow Regatta on Saturday
  4. Community Service Opportunity on Sunday

1. URGENT: Volunteers Needed. We had people unable to fill volunteer positions they were signed up for this weekend and we now have three VASRA positions we need to fill and RAFT volunteers needed for this Saturday (4/13). Please sign up on the links above if you can help! Those signed up to volunteer for any of the above this weekend should receive reminders, but we recommend that you check the sign-up links above to ensure you know what volunteer opportunities you signed up for and that you are there on time. IMPORTANT REMINDER: If you are not able to fulfill your obligation, please don’t just remove your name from the sign-up genius, but please also notify our volunteer coordinator at wtwcrewvolunteer@gmail.com so we can ensure we fill the vacant slot and avoid being fined if it is a VASRA slot.

2. NEW: Pre-Regatta Dinner Food Assignments for all families. Our next pre-regatta dinner is this Friday from 7-9pm (* requires authentication). Thank you for hosting and to the parents who have signed up to help. Here are the dinner and RAFT food assignments (* requires authentication) for all families. Note these are not in alphabetical order, but ordered by dish type. If an athlete’s last name falls between the names listed then that is their food assignment. 

Please bring the assigned food items to the pre-regatta dinner promptly at 7pm, even if your student-athlete is unable to attend the dinner.

3. NEW: Darrell Winslow Regatta this Saturday. Student-athletes will be told which boat they will be on and what time to arrive. The schedule is reversed this weekend so the 4s are in the morning and the 8s are in the afternoon. As a general rule and unless told otherwise by a coach, rowers must be at the boathouse no later than two hours before their scheduled race, and coxswains must be there for the coxswains’ meeting.

The heat sheets are not available yet, so we recommend following @VASRAResults on Twitter and watching our Home Page for more information as well.

We also want to remind everyone to follow the posted speed limits driving to and from the river and in Sandy Run Park.

REMINDER: If you want to save some money (it costs $20 to park at Sandy Run during a regatta), you have the opportunity to use the Halley Elementary School (ES) at 8850 Cross Chase Cir, Fairfax Station, VA 22039 (formerly operated out of Silverbrook Elementary School) shuttle which is free to student-athletes and family members from our school and a few others who contribute to it.

4. NEW: Community Service Hours Opportunity. If any student-athlete is in need of community service hours, VASRA is offering an opportunity this Sunday, April 14th to work the finish line at the GMU Women’s Invitational college regatta. If you are interested, please contact wtwcrewVASRA@gmail.com.
