January Update–skiing, meetings, erg racing!

It’s Portland held hostage Day 7.

A few important announcements–

XC Ski Outing–Our attempt at organizing a XC ski trip to Teacup Lake has had numerous false starts.   Our last announcement was that we had moved the date to Jan. 22 due to weather.  Jan. 22 is their big ski race at Teacup.  Kind of like swimming at Vancouver Lake during Regionals.  So, the NEW date is Feb. 12.   Sign up on regatta sign up sheet

Annual Membership Meeting, January 29, 3pm Lucky Lab Pub, Multnomah Village.  Join us for pizza, salad, beer and all the excitement you can expect from an annual membership meeting.  Including Board elections, financial reports and special announcements about 2017.

Erg Racing in a public setting.  Sounds great, doesn’t it?  The 2nd annual CybERG 2k erg race is Sunday Feb. 5 at the University of Portland.  $15.  Women’s masters are racing from 7-8am.  Men’s masters from 8-9am.   Let your captain know if you want to race.  Deadline Jan. 31.

Tax Receipts–For those who donated to the club in 2016, thank you!  Donation receipts will be sent to you in the coming days.  If you don’t need one, just let Peter know.

River Conditions–The upcoming melt and rainstorm may result in unfavorable river conditions.  We will only cancel weekend rowing the night before if we KNOW the conditions will be bad.  Otherwise the coaches will assess in the morning.
