There will be three regattas this fall:

GR Fall Classic: Saturday, September 30th
Head of the Grand: Saturday, October 14th
Leelanau Chase: Sunday, October 29th

Reminder: Fall is a club sport and therefore, parents are responsible for getting their athletes to and from the regattas. Middle Schoolers, if coaches deem it safe you will be able to participate in the final fall regatta–The Leelanau Chase.

Please Note: Our website is in the process of an overhaul, which we are very excited about. Thank you Aaron Sundman! We ask for patience as we go through this process and e-mails and facebook (vs website) may need to be relied on more heavily until it is complete and up and running.

Mark the Date: Our first booster/parent meeting of the season is next week Tuesday, August 8 at 6:00 at the High School in the Rams Den. Please note the location change due to school not being in session!

E-Mail Distribution List: In the coming weeks, I will be working on moving our graduated rowers and their families over to our alumni distribution list. If you are a middle school rower/family that is moving up to the high school rowing team, please let me know so I can get you moved to the high school e-mail distribution. Thank you!

We are looking forward to a great season!

For the state games this year it is a little bit different, only the junior events are on Saturday the 24th, with all the open, master, and rec races being on Sunday the 25th. As always there will be no food budget or food tent at the meijer state games, it is expected that the athletes bring their own food as this regatta is not part of any season. It is very important that athletes participating in this regatta as well as parents learn to use regattacentral to find the heatsheet and race times for themselves. below is a link to the most recent heat sheet as of 6/21.
