Shout out to all of our awesome EGRCrew ALUMNI!
Want to give a meaningful and special gift that will be treasured for decades? Please consider honoring your rower with the purchase of an “OAR” ($300) or “SEAT” ($500) permanently labelled with their name! We have sold many of these and look forward to celebrating alumni rowers at the EGR Crew Banquet for their special seat or oar naming ceremony with the current team! What a wonderful way to celebrate your loved with as the name shall appear on the oars and seats so long as the seats will be in service to EGR Crew. If interested in this or other sponsorships, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
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!
So you can’t spell “fundraising” without “fun” and “raising” (along with the letter “d,” which we presume stands for “dominate” which we know rowers are preparing to do this spring!) The EGRCrew Fun-d-Raising Committee is downright awesome, and this team of parents, coaches and rowers together are thinking outside the box in presenting our community with opportunities big and small, famous and obscure, new & unique; fundraising ideas to keep our organization relevant to supporters; fun for rowers; minimal time commitment for parents, but big on results for the team. We’re talking about Rowing for Life through doughnuts, half marathons, Zingerman’s coffee roasted fresh and delivered overnight to us, No-Bake-Bake Sales, Crafty Crap, Rent a Rower, great Whit & Wine through an intimate evening with the side-splitting Pop Scholars. Check us out, get involved. It takes a village to raise a child, but evidently the greater metropolitan area to raise enough money for a new boat and we are going for it. Only have 1 hour a week free? I encourage you to spend it with EGRCrew & become part of an amazing community. We need all backgrounds and talents. We need YOU even if all you can spare is an idea or opinion. So get involved! Meetings are random but always posted on RH.
