Aztec Alumni, Family and Supporters,
Crew Classic weekend is finally upon us and we’re looking forward to a great weekend of racing and catching up with old friends. The weekends events kick off with the Varsity 8 in Heat C of the American Specialty Health Cal Cup at 7:36 AM on Saturday morning. Then the 2nd Varsity 8 will start at 9:20 AM in Heat A of the Sharp Memorial Cup. Then the Novice 8 will close out the days preliminary schedule at 10:52 AM in Heat B of the Derek Guelker Memorial Cup. Those of you not attending the race in person can follow along on the USRowing live stream at https://www.youtube.com/user/usrowingorg and catch the results on the official results page at https://herenow.com/results/#/races/20339/heats.
After the acing events of the day conclude, we’ll also be returning to the tradition of hosting the annual meeting of the H. Del Beekley Rowing Foundation at 5:00 PM in the SDSU tent at the race course. This meeting is open to all alumni of the mens rowing program, and all current members in attendance will have an opportunity to vote on and/or run for a seat on the board for the upcoming year. If you’re not currently a member, the meeting will be a good time to make a donation of $25 or more to officially become a member. This year we know we will have a couple of board positions open, so please let us know if you have interest in serving for the coming year.
Sunday’s racing events will be determined by the results of the races on Saturday. All updated heat information will be posted on the results site at https://herenow.com/results/#/races/20339/heats as the heats complete and the lane assignments are drawn. Please check back for updated information.
In addition to any racing that happens on Sunday, we will also be hosting the annual BBQ at the team tent starting at about 11:00 AM. As usual, we will be serving carne and pollo asada burritos with all of the fixings that we’ll be grilling up on site.
We look forward to seeing you at the events of the weekend.
