Classes begin Tuesday, January 20.  The returning men will meet on Monday, 1/19, at the A & E Center for a run at 4:30pm.  There will be a Spring Crew informational meeting for the returning women at 4:30 pm as well that day.  New recruits are welcome.  Anyone interested in joining should contact the coach at room 140a in the A & E Center or by e-mail at iccrew@ithaca.edu.  Athletic physicals for new recruits will be offered by Friday, January 30.  Be in shape BEFORE you begin.  Check with your coach for training guidelines during the holiday break.

Row for Humanity/Crew Erg-a-thon will be held on Friday, January 30.  This is a fund-raiser for the team and Habitat for Humanity.  A portion of all proceeds will be donated to the I.C. chapter of Habitat for Humanity.  The remainder will be used toward $100 of crew gear for every participant, miscellaneous supplies, crew capital, and expenses from the spring trip.   Event instructions and related information is available from Coach Becky.  Sign-up sheets for rowing time-slots will be posted outside the crew office by January 26.  Mailers are due back on December 10.  TURN IN YOUR MAILERS PROMPTLY!

Spring trip, March 6-15, Lake Lanier, GA.  The entire squad will travel south for on-the-water (OTW) training.  We will leave after classes on Friday, March 6, drive through the night, and arrive on Saturday morning.  Transportation will be by two charter buses.  Please share the information in this hand-out with your parents.

               The cost of the trip is mostly paid by the participants.  A fee of $425 will be collected by Feb. 6.  Contact your coach with questions about this fee.  The fees cover the following;

Bus transportation                          $170 (non-refundable after Feb. 7)

2 daily meals at Brenau U.             $115

The college provides about $65 meal money per athlete that should cover remaining costs listed above.  Your only additional costs will be meals while traveling, souvenirs, and miscellaneous items.  A detailed itinerary of this trip will be distributed in mid-February.  Call Coach Dan with questions or concerns at (607) 274-1266 or e-mail to iccrew@ithaca.edu.
