1.  Practice Continues at Woodson - 2 - 4 March
  • Due to unsafe conditions at Sandy Run, practices will be held at Woodson, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, 2-4 March 
  • Weather permitting we will practice at the river on Thursday
  • Practice times at Woodson will be the same as Winter Conditioning
2.  Bus Update
  • Once again, due to the weather forecast and Sandy Run conditions, the first day of bus service has been delayed.  As of now we are planning for service to begin on Thursday, March 5.  Stay tuned for further developments and updates. 
  • Future Bus Dates:  Good news! The March 16 student holiday has been added to the bus schedule, as the coaches will have all rowers practice together.
    •  To recap:  Student holidays on March 16 and April 6 will have bus service.  On two Fridays during April there will be no bus service:  April 10 (regular school day) and April 17 (student holiday). There is also no bus during spring break, March 30 - April 3.  Formation of carpools for the non–bus practice dates are highly encouraged. 
  • Due to the recent cancellation of the bus service because of weather and river conditions, you may be wondering about the “lost” value of your bus fee.  Woodson Crew would like you to know that they are aware of this concern.  Please know that the cost will be re-evaluated later in the season, once the weather settles down, with possible options to include applying a credit, providing a cash refund, or other remedy. 
  • A reminder:
    •  Once bus service begins, students are to meet the charter bus in the Woodson parking lot off Whitacre Road, near the fenced area where the green vans park. The bus will leave at 3pm sharp, so make sure your student knows to board between 2:45 and 3pm.   The bus will return to the same area around 7pm for you to pick up your rower.
  • Thank you to all parents who have signed up for their turn at chaperone duties!
