5 Days until Erg-A-Thon!
- Weather is looking like partially cloudy & low to mid 40 degrees so great day for erging!
- WHAT PARENTS NEED TO KNOW: 7-1 pm Saturday March 19th, next to Jose Bubuskas, all invited so please come participate and have fun! Wear green & get into the Irish Jig Spirit of things! Bring: (A) any loose change and dollar bills to throw in buckets to support your rower or others! $1 bills to buy food, coffee, hot chocolate in the Food Tent for $1 each, (B) a lawn chair or blanket if you want to sit down & relax with your cup of coffee, enjoy the music & watch the half Marathoner excitement who will start at 10 am and rown until 12-12:30. (C) cell phone or camera to snap pictures!
- Erg-A-Thon raises fund for 2 great causes while promoting exercise & healthy lifetsyles – to that end, all parents & the public are invited to get a little exercise with us & try out a “Guest Erg” machine! We have invited some local celebrities including media folks and the Mayor invited to stop in and “Learn to Erg with EGR Crew” and anyone can do it!
- What ROWERS NEED TO KNOW (1) Keep working on gathering those donations – a minimum of $100 in sponsors and thanks to so many who are going waay beyond that to try and get one of the Top 10 awesome prizes! The HUMAN RUBBER BAND just arrived today & we have nearly a thousand dollars in gift cards to give away to the TOP 10 fundraisers! (2) Dress warm & green! See how much GREEN you can physically put on our body for Irish-Jiggiest-Rower-Outfit of the Day $50 prize Saturday; (3) Take tons of selfies in front of our new team banner that we can post on social media; (4) Invite your family and friends to try out the “Guest Ergs” & offer to teach them the rower’s mantra: Legs, back, arms. Arms, back legs. (5) and team photos in front of the new team banner and in your green! (6) Beyond that our expectation is that you hang out, eat, cheer on your teammates and Irish Jig runners, and especially the HM 9 who are erging from noon to 12:30. (7) great food being sold for $1 at the Team Tent; (8) bring a blanket/lawn chair and hang out all morning with us!
