We had a lively meeting on Monday. In attendance was President Jake Wittler, VP Andy Olson, Treasurer Jon Singer, Secretary Dan Smith and coach Brian Robison.
We discussed many topics. Of note, a former coach is interested in coming back to coach the team. The money to make this happen would be raised by our alumni, and much of the money has been committed already. Nothing is set in stone, but the team and foundation are very interested to learn more.
Much time was spent discussing recruiting for the year. The team expects at least 16 rowers back, and they are looking to add quite a few more bodies to the program!
Finally, we have several events coming up:
1) Mark your calendar for the weekend of October 8 & 9. We will be hosting a giant SDSU rowing weekend. It kicks off on Oct 8 with the Aztec War games. Come down to the boathouse and jump in an alumni boat to race the current team. Following that, there will be a dedication for the new William Francis boat, which was donated to the team by Andy Drilling’s family. After the festivities at the boathouse, we invite you to come watch the SDSU football team host TCU at Qualcomm Stadium. We will be tailgating beforehand! Finally, we will be hosting a golf tournament on Oct 9.
2) Day at the Del Mar Races & Anaheim Angels Baseball game: Stay tuned for upcoming dates!
