PLEASE Mark your Calendars!
1. Board of Directors Challenge Cup and GARTY PARTY (Thursday, 7-7-11 starting at 6 pm):
Build a thirst by manning 8+ Shells to race against your Officers for the 2nd Annual BoD Challenge Cup.
We will have a grand cookout to ensure that everyone is hydrated (water, soda and whatever...). Boating starts at 6 pm (Juniors, Collegians and Masters are heartily encouraged to attend).
This special GARTY PARTY lasts until...whenever. Assuming strong attendance, we should resume the weekly GARTY Parties thereafter.
We have fourteen (that's right 14) GARTY Special Events before Labor Day. That is truly GREAT news to strengthen our Club's financial posture. Kudos to Julie, Kathy, Amanda and others for this budding success story.
Yet - we all must help a little with preparing the Pavilion and grounds for Events and be flexible to assist with Event logistic items. Thanks in advance!
2. Saturday Coggeshall Clean-up - WE NEED YOU on Saturday morning 7-16 from 9 til Noon (surely you work for BRATS and BEVERAGE)...
We have painting, spot jobs, oar work, general cleanup, boat relocations, outdoor touch-ups...get the idea?
Our last Clean-up was, quite frankly, underwhelming for participation.
There are alternatives to tapping a bit of your Volunteer time and talent, but we'd prefer to avert cleaning surcharges and the like with your HELP.
Most Masters need the exercise and most Juniors need the Service hours :)
3. Southwest Regional MASTERS Regatta (Sunday, July 10th):
A small contingent of Masters rowers and scullers will descend on Oakland's Lake Merritt for spirited racing to bring back a bushel of blings.
Thanks, as always, to our ironman trailer driver and Starboard Stroke, Senor Wragg, for yet another long-haul.
4. Club Nationals 13-14 July
Best of luck to Coach Lemus and our lady collegiate racers.
5. OKLAHOMA - (not the musical but the MASTERS Nationals) - mid August
