We will send an update with rowers cleared for practice separately once we receive today's update from MHS.
Practice this week:
Come to Lecture Hall, dressed ready to work-out both indoors and outside, with LOTS of water!
Thursday Nov. 16 & Friday Nov 17th : Girls 3:30-5:30 and Boys 4:30-6:30
Saturday Nov 18: Boys 8-10am OR 1-3pm; Girls 10:00am - noon
Boys will be told this week which Saturday practice they should attend and please note: tighter compression/"biker" shorts recommended - not long, loose fitting "basketball"shorts that can get caught in the sliding mechanism of the rowing machines.
Restaurant Night at Pulcinella:
Tuesday, November 14th 5-8pm. Bring the attached flyer (or go to McLean Crew to download). We will receive 70% of proceeds from dinner. That is incredibly generous, so let's make it count!
If you have not already, please visit the Cassel’s McLean Crew Store. The online store is closing at midnight on Tuesday, November 14th, and this is the last opportunity to purchase McLean Crew Club spirit wear and team gear before the uniform sale in February 2018. (Rowers like to wear MCC gear during the Winter competitions and Erg-a-Thon)
Fundraising Hope your rower has been out selling Christmas Trees and Paw Thaw Ice Melt - sales deadline is the Sunday after Thanksgiving (Nov 26th) - look for sales update and sign-up for delivery day later this week. See below for information about MCC's Holiday Gift Card Sales - holiday giving and preparations are a great time to leverage a benefit for McLean Crew

GIft Card Fundraising:
The 2017 Holiday Gift Card Sale starts this week and orders must be in by December 5. Purchase Scrip (aka Gift Cards) to support the crew team and to get yourself ready for the holidays!
During McLean Crew’s Holiday Gift Card Sale, you can order from numerous vendors. A donation is made to MCC with every gift card ordered – most donations range from 4-10% but some top 15%! Easy money for doing something you do anyway – what a great way to support our team!
You can purchase during Holiday Gift Card Sale in 2 ways:
Use Sign-Up Genius to reserve your gift cards and then pay and receive your gift cards at either the Holiday Bazaar on Saturday, December 9th or at MCC’s next membership meeting Wednesday December 13th.
If you prefer to pay online, and see even more vendors, you can also go to the Scrip website and order gift cards directly, and pick-up as listed above. Several of these cards can be reloaded, benefiting MCC each time.
Orders are due by December 5th for delivery before the holidays and you can get to these links via www.mcleancrew.org as well . Please note: If you sign up for cards, you are committing to purchase them. Your sign-up is not visible to others – don’t forget your rower’s name.
You’ll see that some of these vendors will donate a wonderfully high percentage of the value. L.L. Bean and Land’s End give MCC a 16% donation!!!
Even when a vendor offers a small percentage, it can make a big difference to MCC if you spend a lot with that vendor. After all, 4% of $200 is $8. Imagine giving MCC $8 every time you do your grocery shopping at Giant!
Gift cards are great not only as gifts, but for your own regular shopping needs - Giant, Target, Home Depot, Staples, etc.
FYI you can purchase Chipotle($10), Starbucks ($10&$25) and Giant ($50/$100) cards at most membership meetings – these we keep in stock
If you have any questions, or need to make other arrangements for pick-up of cards, contact Cheryl Juneau firstname.lastname@example.org)
