As we enter the last month of the rowing “off-season”, there’s still plenty of news to share:
•Learn to Row registration kicked off yesterday, and in the first few hours 14 new rowers signed up for spring classes!
•Kristin Bott, our club registrar and membership coordinator, could use an assistant and understudy. The position is paid, modestly. For a job description (hint-emails) and/or to express interest, contact Peter. We would like to have someone on board by March 1.
•Our 2017 club calender and event sign up page is a good one to bookmark. You’ll see all the club events for the year listed, with sign up deadlines (if any). Specific event pages are created as we get closer to each event. You can also sign up to serve on club committees–see the committee tab.
•Upcoming February events include CyBERG, a Feb. 12 XC ski outing, and the Feb. 26 Rowers Triathlon.
•Learn to Scull classes for members are available. Several sessions have already been scheduled. Check the bottom of the Sculling page for the schedule. We will open registration on March 1.
•Dues payments–if you plan to pay your annual dues by the month, time has just about run out to get started on that (it’s already February). Contact Scott right away to get this set up, or to update your 2016 monthly payment for the new year. Lump sum payments (check or online) must be received by March 1 to keep your membership current.
•USRowing waivers. These must be signed each year. Things are a bit more confusing now, as each Station L member must be either a USRowing Championship Member($65/year) OR a Basic Member ($7.75/year). These memberships must be renewed whenever they expire each year. There is an “auto-renew” feature, so you may want to consider that option when you renew this year.
Even with a current USRowing membership, the 2017 calendar year USRowing waiver MUST be signed to row. Instructions here. Please complete this ASAP.
