The spring rowing season has flown by! The team is more than half way through their race season. They swept the Gruenberg Cup against Long Beach St. and USC earlier this season, and are focusing on peaking this weekend at the San Diego Crew Classic!
The varsity men kick off the Crew Classic in the Cal Cup at 7:28AM on Saturday. They will compete against UCSD, Purdue, Notre Dame, UC Davis and Sac State. The JV team goes next…at 9:28 they compete against Yale, Stanford, Santa Clara & USD. At 10:52, the novice team races against Oregon St., Santa Clara, UCSB & Notre Dame. (The second novice boat races on Sunday at noon). Each race is being televised live on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/user/usrowingorg
…Speaking of Sunday, we will be having our Foundation’s annual meeting right before the BBQ at the SDSU Alumni tent. That will take place around 9:30AM (the time may move a bit to ensure everybody can watch the team race). This meeting covers what has happened to the Foundation over the previous year, and elect officers for the next year. Once the meeting finishes, the BBQ will be fired up for some tasty carne and pollo asada burritos!
This is a great chance to meet the current rowers, reconnect with some old teammates and meet new friends!
Please let us know if you have any questions!
