Ergathon 2016 was a huge success for the team: 30+families came out to either help set up, run the event or clean up in addition to 50+ rowers that came out to row with enthusiasm & great team spirit already! Great music, food & friends new & old gathered to cheer on rowers. Over a dozen people expressed interest in the Adult Learn To Row Program as a result of Guest Ergs so E-A-T also attracted new interest in the program. Huge thank you to our MC Captain Kurt and our coaches as well that never left the scene despite chilly hours of comeraderie and support! Rowers now have until Friday March 25th at 3 pm to turn in their collected donations to the blue EGRCrew basket in the office at EGRHS. Checks should indicate the rower that you wish to be credited. Convenient online donations may be made at www.egrcrew.org via Paypal, Credit or bank card.
Get those donations in this week and let us if you have any questions!
