Portland Fall Classic Volunteers:
Time to grab some of the fun jobs at the Portland Fall Classic. Sign up at the link here. This regatta is a significant stop on the NW race circuit, and we need your help to make it happen. We expect all participants to volunteer for a shift. The 8+’s and 4x’s race at 8:45am, done by 10am.
•Look for information next week about our “every 3 years” equipment fundraising drive. The drive begins October 1, and we’ve targeted some sweet boats, oars and gear for purchase. Peter is looking for a few fundraising captains to help keep track of pledges. Let him know if you can help.
Other calendar items:
•September 30–deadline to sign up to row at the Portland Fall Classic.
•October 8–Race ’round Ross Island, 7am. (Club scrimmage) Potluck brunch at 9am. No signup needed.
•October 16–American Lake Fall Classic. Scull lineups done. Women’s sweep lineups to be announced soon.
Deadline is today at 11:59pm for signup for the Head of the Lake Regatta in Seattle on November 6.
Sign up here
On Saturday Sept 17th there will be a run that is starting and ending in the Portland Boathouse parking lot. Please park on the street and give yourself a bit more time to get to the boathouse in the morning.
Take care and see you all in the am.
We are moving the deadline to sign up for the November 6 Head of the Lake Regatta in Seattle. The new deadline is Monday September 19. The regatta is capping entries, so we need to get ours in ASAP. Sign up now.
Sunday sculling is cancelled this weekend, as most of the boats, scullers and coaches will be at the Head of the Dog regatta in Multnomah Channel near the Sauvie Island bridge. It’s a costume regatta–and Brad is planning to bring his camera. Watch Facebook.
Today is the deadline to sign up for the American Lake Fall Classic in Tacoma, October 16. Sign up here.
After the Saturday open row, grab some coffee and help get the boathouse and equipment ready for the fall racing season. Plenty of fun stuff to work on. Stay as long as you can!
ps. We need two Sawzalls. Don’t ask.
