Don't forget to follow Ridgewood Crew on Facebook/Instagram

Our gratitude to everyone who helped to make Rowathon 2023 a success! The Ridgewood Crew community showed up as fundraisers, bakers, erg/equipment movers and volunteers. Congratulations to our top Rowathon Fundraisers: Hallie Newman, Luciano Saladino and Erik Gregerson! You’ll each receive a pair of Ridgewood Crew sweatpants and a t-shirt. 

**We are still missing Rowathon Funds from several rowers. Please contact Leia Scharfenberg ([email protected] or (703)300-0303) to arrange a time to collect them. Funds will need to be collected before our first regatta on April 2nd.

Food tent season is fast approaching next weekend very exciting times! I will post the menus for the pasta dinners and food tent menus in GroupSpot weekly for each race which can be found under signups in GroupSpot. This is only possible with all families volunteering to make the season for our rowers amazing! We need all the kids who are attending to rsvp for the pasta dinner so we have the right amount about of food. We feed everyone who attends the regattas so we require spectators to rsvp to have an appropriate amount of food outside of our High School team. Each food tent requires 8 volunteers to run a food tent for the day. Please sign up according to when your child is racing. If we don’t have sufficient volunteers for any of the above events for the season the food tent will not be available this season.
