These kids worked hard this season! Lots of 6k's and getting up early for Regattas. We hope to have everyone back next season plus additional folks who have expressed interest in joining in the spring. We are always interested in growing the team so talk it up. The more rowers we have, the more opportunity to get out on the water.
It's time for the Blue Jean Ball !
Only one thing left to do...
Buy Your Blue Jean Ball Tickets and invite your friends INFO AND TICKETS
The Blue Jean Ball is this  Saturday, November 16th!  
We need a final effort to encourage your friends to join us. This fundraiser is critical to our ability to have a crew program and keep your kids rowing.
Full participation  is expected, and for it to be a successful event, we’re asking each family to bring a minimum of  two additional  couples. 
You can count on great  auction items, yummy food, an open bar, live music , and lots of fun people. So grab your friends and let’s make this the best event of the fall season!
