1. NEW: Chuckwagon Workday To Be Rescheduled. The previously planned workday this Saturday, December 29th is being rescheduled. We will provide more information and a new sign-up when we confirm a new date/time.

2. NEW: Spirit Wear Update. Thank you to all the families that picked-up their Spirit Wear before the holidays. If you were not able to pick-up before the holidays and would like to arrange to pick-up your merchandise, please email Babette Korn at babskorn@gmail.com AFTER January 2nd. Babette will attempt to distribute the remaining Spirit Wear at practice on January 9th. If you missed ordering this time, there will be another opportunity later this winter.

3. REMINDER: Practice Bus Registration. Transportation to practice is the responsibility of the student-athlete’s family, however the W.T. Woodson Crew Boosters assist in this endeavor by contracting a commercial bus as an alternative. The fee for bus transportation between W.T. Woodson High School and Sandy Run Regional Park is in addition to regular dues. Registrations are accepted on a first-come, first served basis. Order of registration is based on date of payment. Registrations are secured by the payment in full, due no later than January 19, 2019.

To register and for more information including bus schedules, visit Practice Bus Information on our website.

The practice bus fee per crew member is $500 for the 2018-2019 season. We recognize that this is not an inexpensive service, but consider your time savings and the peace of mind of safe passage and team camaraderie. After full payment for an athlete is received, there will be no refunds unless the bus is cancelled for the season. If during the season you decide you no longer want bus transportation for your student, you must find your own rider replacement and arrange reimbursement with them. (We will assist where we can) We will maintain a waitlist of athletes desiring to join the bus riding program, should an athlete drop from the bus.

Please make your check for $500 payable to WTW Crew Boosters and mail it (or drop off) to the WTW Crew Booster Vice President by the January 19th deadline. Payment by PayPal is also an option for the 2018-2019 season. Please go to the following link (Practice Bus Information) and select “Add to Cart” at the top of the page and follow the PayPal instructions if this is your preferred payment method.
