GOOD LUCK GIRLS – the Varsity 4 is preparing to leave in the a.m. for Nashport Ohio to compete in the National Championship Regatta! To that end we need to say a huge THANK YOU to Rockford High School Crew Team for delivering our boat “Crystal” on their trailer down to Nashport so we wouldn’t have to drive a trailer down there for the one vessel. Thank you also to Rockford for allowing our rowers & parents to eat at their team tent this weekend and coordinating all those details! What awesome collaboration and generosity!
We had a 3-month trial period that was very successful for EGR Crew’s “ROW ROW ROW YOUR JOE”. We’ll now take a break for the summer & are grateful to Zingerman’s for their awesome brew. If you’d like to get in on the final order for the season (to resume in September) please place your order by 5/26/16. Thank you for all the support folks!
Shout out to all of our awesome EGRCrew ALUMNI!
