Weekend Rowing until October 18th

BRASS Members,
 
Now that our boathouse staff has returned to college/high school, we are faced with a weekend scheduling challenge. Not willing to have the season end too early we are asking members to reserve the weekends they want to row, until October 18th, so that we can make arrangements to staff the boathouse. This information needs to be submitted by Wednesday September 17th via the email address berkshirerowingandsculling@gmail.com OR reserve on the boathouse voicemail. We will make every attempt to meet your request. Also, be aware that we are entering the racing season so a requested boat may not be available on some dates because it has already been reserved for a race. Thank you for being flexible.

Member’s Club Day, August 9th, 8:30 to 10:00

BRASS Members,
I almost let this one get by me. So sorry for the late notice, but the August Club Day is this Saturday Aug 9th from 8:30 to 10:00. As always, any 2014 member of BRASS can come to the BRASS Boat House between 8:30 and 10AM and row a boat with no rental fee.  It’s a chance to try rowing in a double or a quad with other members or  jump in a single you have not rowed before. Or even just go out in your favorite shell if it is available. The turn out for the July Club Day was terrific, lets see if we can match it! Remember members only. Food offerings are always welcome.
