1.  Bus to on the water practices
  • Potential Bus Riders: Decision time is here!
  • We need to know if your crew team member will ride the bus to and from crew practice on weekdays after school. The cost is yet to be determined; it is dependent upon the number of riders.  The maximum cost would be $475 per person ($9.50 per day), but as more students sign up, the cost will go down.  
  • The bus picks up and drops off in Woodson's parking lot Monday through Friday during on-the-water season.  It provides a time for the athletes to relax and have camaraderie without parents losing work time and emailing constantly to deal with carpools.  The bus registration form is attached and has more details. 
  • Please sign up now!  We really want to provide this valuable service to all rowers/coxswains, especially the newer and younger members with working parents who really need transportation help.  
  • Make your $100 deposit check payable to WTW Crew Boosters and mail along with your signed (parent and student) bus registration form (attached) to Kelly Dobrydney, Crew Chaperone Coordinator, 4500 Rachael Manor Drive, Fairfax, VA  22032.  Alternatively you can drop it at Kelly's home in the George Mason Forest neighborhood off Braddock Road.
