Great First Day of Winter Conditioning and Tree Sale Update with Dec 2nd Pick-up Sign-Up

Wow! What a great first day of Crew Winter Conditioning! We had close to 90 rowers/coxswains out to kick-off McLean Crew's Winter Conditioning today! Thank you to the coaches, board members and each of the registering parents who got us here! and Congrats to the hard-working rowers who got just a taste of the fun (and work) to come!! Our fleet of ergs was working in full force and our coaching staff was tremendous to balance our large team. Attached you can view a few pictures from today.

By now you have realized that a lot of emails come along with McLean Crew Club - we try to balance brevity and focus while not flooding your inbox with emails - but PLEASE READ the emails, thoroughly. There is a lot of information shared and, especially with such a large team this year, we need families to take responsibility and the initiative to be active members of our community. Jump in! Ask questions! Have fun with us!

A few items:

Winter Conditioning Practice Times - the Men's team returning rowers will practice Saturdays 8:00am - 10:00am while the novice/freshmen rowers will practice 1:00pm - 3:00pm. (FYI the Women's team remains at 10:00am - noon on Saturdays)

REMEMBER: The Women's team have "off" Wednesdays and the Men's team have "off" Thursdays.

Fundraising - Christmas Trees and Ice Melt.

This is the first big fundraising activity for a club and a great chance to make some progress on the $300 Winter Conditioning Fundraising Requirement See the kick-off and sales information in the message below, with the associated attachments - information also available on our website under Fundraising - Christmas Trees & Ice Melt (be prepared for some Christmas tunes...)

  • Sign-up for Tree Delivery on Saturday December 2nd 8:00 - 4:00 @ MHS - we need ROWERS and PARENTS (get a jump start on your volunteer credits). Sign-up Genius
