Month: June 2017

BRC News 6/21/17: Summer Rowing starts Monday, 6/26!

  1. Changing of the Guard: thanks for your patience over the next few weeks while emailing, web-posting, registration and other duties are handed off to new parents.
  2. Updated Modified Program Description will be posted soon. Coach Bex has exciting plans.
  3. Message from Coach Bex:  “We are hitting the water in less than a week! If you have been waiting to register, please do so now-coaches need to bescheduled, equipment prepped, etc. New faces are joining us, let’s get ready to grow this team!
    For the experienced rowers, if the morning time slot is not feasible, please just register for the afternoon learn to row class and we will see about doing some creative boating.
    All rowers are invited and encouraged to attend the afternoon sessions in addition to morning classes to fill our learn to row boats. Volunteering for learn to row is a free row for anyone who can come help bring our new rowers up to speed. This is also a good opportunity to learn coxing skills, become more flexible rowing on both sides of the boat.
    Vacations and planned absences should not deter you from participating. If you want to sign up for summer rowing, but have a family vacation or similar, please reach out and we can work on something to fit your schedule needs.
    I am looking forward to getting on the water with you all!
    Warmly,  Bex”
