Board meeting Tues Nov 10


All are invited to our next Board meeting , Tuesday Nov. 10 at 7:30 PM at my house, 202 Hodges Lane Takoma Park 20912. We’ll discuss the schedule going forward, team updates, and begin in earnest to organize the Board and volunteer committees for winter workouts, the Spring season and beyond.

I’m inviting folks who are not currently on the Board or on a committee to join us so we can share ideas and start implementing our plan forward. I strongly encourage you to attend.

PLEASE RESPOND with your intention to attend, so I can get a rough headcount.

Wreath and Candle Fundraising is on

Rowers and Families,

The Blair Crew Holiday Wreath (and now) Candle Sale is one of our two largest fundraisers each year. The attached flyer explains how it works. It’s easy — folks are buying holiday wreaths and candles this time of year anyway, items are not more expensive than at stores, and they like to support Blair Crew. We have a short sales window, however — our final order to the supplier is due Nov 7 — so start now! Get your orders and collected checks to me by the 5th.
The full order will ship to my house in Takoma Park. You’ll come collect the number you sold and then deliver them directly to customers. Shipment arrives the weekend after Thanksgiving.
The order form is attached. I suggest opening the Word doc and adding your seller’s info before printing out copies for sales.
Please let me know if you have questions. I am out of town this week but checking email.

Latest News

Here are some quick updates on upcoming events:

  • Head of the Occoquan Regatta November 1, the day after Halloween. Rowers let Greg know your availability so he can start making up boats.
  • Tail of the Anacostia Regatta November 7. This Regatta is kind of a “pick up” Regatta with other teams that use the Blandensburg boathouse. There is no website for the race, so we will keep everyone updated via this site and the list serve.
  • Because of the Anacostia race, we are extending the season to November 7.

We will update the official schedule soon with these new additions and more information will be sent on all….


Go Blazers!

Where:  Kemp Mill Rd just before the turn-off to the stables in Wheaton Regional Park.

When: Sunday, October 18th at 10:00 a.m.  It will likely last about 3 hours, but students can be picked up at any time.

Bring: All participants should come in clothes that can get dirty or wet, long pants and sleeves, closed-toed shoes and perhaps caps or something with a visor. They should also bring water to drink and sun block would be a good extra precaution as well.

Parents are welcome to come and lend a hand. Hope to see you there!
