Info Regarding Dinner Thursday Night, Canada Menu, Hotel Room List

Update for dinner Thursday night. We apologize for the error, but athletes will need to either pack a sack dinner or bring money for dinner on the road.

THANK YOU! to everyone who filled in slots on the sign up genius today. We still have a quite a few slots that are cause for worry. Please, if you are a parent that is attending and you have not signed up, please take a moment to see where you can pitch in.

Attached is the menu for the weekend. Also attached is the rooming list for the hotel.

We wish everyone the best of luck! Go Rams!

Food Tent in Danger for Canada

Thank you to those that have signed up to help with the food tent. Many of you have taken multiple shifts and we appreciate it.

A lot of work from the athletes, the coaches, the travel coordinate, the food committee and the board has gone into prepping for this regatta. It’s the last regatta of the season and we are hoping it will be a successful one.

Unfortunately, so far we have had no one willing to step up to run the food tent and it is very important to have somebody in charge of it to make sure everything is running smoothly. Most of the meals are being prepped today and there is a menu for each meal this weekend. We are not asking for one person to be in charge of the food tent; it can be a group of people. If no one is willing to step up and run this last one, we are honestly not sure if it will be an effective food tent for our athletes and coaches, who depend on us to fuel them for all of the hard work they are putting in. That is not fair to them.

Also, with that being said, there are a lot of empty shifts left on the sign up genius. Currently with no one in charge and many slots having no volunteers, a food tent will not be able to happen. The food has been bought and prepped, but we do not have the hands needed to execute it on site. We don’t want to have to do it this way, but if slots aren’t filled by this afternoon, we will either need to start plugging in names (we do not know what parents are going and what parents are not so it will be up to you to let us know) or not have a food tent. Either one of these is obviously not a great choice.

We are hoping that with this e-mail we will get enough volunteers to at least man the tent. If not, the board will need to make a decision by this afternoon as to what is going to happen for this regatta. We are hopeful that we won’t need to come to that point.

Thanks again for all that everyone does and for all of the hard work this season.

Here are the photos from Crom 2017!

DropBox Instructions

The above link will allow you to download selected pictures to your computer. You do this in two ways

  1. While viewing the photos (double click on any thumbnail) there are three dots … in the upper right hand corner. Click on the dots and a download option for that picture appears.
  2. To download multiples, in thumbnail view (not the photo viewer) select the pictures to download by highlighting them. (Ctrl_C, or Ctrl-Shift) and then hit the download option at the top of the list. It will create and download a Zip file to your computer. Open the folder and Extract All.

I usually keep the link active for a couple of months and then delete it.

These photos were post processed (cropped, adjusted for noise, exposure, etc) and are suitable mostly for screen viewing or small prints. If anyone desires to try a large format print of a specific picture I may be able to provide a better file for that purpose.

Crew Prom/Crom

It’s looking like it will be a great afternoon for crom! The invitation is attached as a reminder.

Mr. Sidor (Hailey’s grandfather) will be doing a photo shoot for all that would like to participate. Please be there at 4:00 for that. If you have a mask, bring that along to the photo shoot–a group mask shot would be cool!

Dinner is on your own following the photo shoot. Dance starts at 7:00 and ends at 10:00.

There is a large field in front of their house–please park in that and feel free to bring a snack/drink. Bottled waters and Ice waters were the hit last year.

Congratulations on a great racing day yesterday and we’ll see everyone this afternoon!

Important Canada Information for those Attending

Dear Parents and Athletes,

Attached to this e-mail is a permission slip for Canada. Here is the link that explains why the permission slip is recommended and how to fill it out.

Julie Staudacher is a notary and will be on hand at the banquet to notarize each permission slip.

The permission slip and a copy of the athletes official birth certificate (must be the certificate with the raised seal-a copy is fine) is due on the night of the banquet. We will have a table set up to notarize and turn in. These will be kept in a folder and will be in the coaches possession on the bus in the event they are needed.

Kathy, our treasurer, will be reaching out to each family soon to let you know what you owe. It was asked that each athlete sell 10 boxes of meat in order to make this fundraiser fair/equitable to all. Because of variances in amounts sold, it has been decided that the profit from the meat sale will go to each individual seller. The $1000 from the car wash will be divided amongst those that participated in the fundraising equally. If you did not participate in the Ada Meat fundraiser, a flat $400 is due.

Athletes will be departing after school on Thursday and arriving back Sunday night. Coaches will excuse them from school.

Parents in order to cross the border you will need either a passport or enhanced drivers license.
