National Learn to Row Day

This Saturday!


Alumni Row & BBQ: June 4-5, 2011

Time to start making plans to attend the annual Alumni Row & BBQ, which will take place in Chicago June 4-5. The BBQ will be held in the afternoon on June 4, with the row the following Sunday morning. We’ve got some big news to announce and the launch of a major fundraising campaign. For the Class of 2001, this will be… our 10 year reunion. Are you coming? Hope to see you there!


Just a quick note to any alumni who might be thinking of heading to Indianapolis this weekend to cheer the team on: MACRAs has been moved to Grand Rapids, MI due to weather making Indianapolis’ site unrowable.  They will be racing in Bass River Park, Ottawa County. There is no revised schedule as of yet, but races will probably start around 8am.

Please contact Chelsea Steffen if you need further directions chelsea(dot)steffen(at)gmail(dot)com

The alumni site is dead…long live the alumni site!

The original alumni website, hosted through my graduate department’s server, has finally been erased after nearly eight years of faithful service.

I suppose it had to happen eventually, but it is sad to see an old friend go. Once I get around to it, I’ll figure out a way to get more pictures up and some of the information that was still residing on the old site.

If you have any suggestions for things to add to this site, let me know. Otherwise, keep erging!

Facebook group for crew alumni

A new group for Chicago Crew Alumni has been created on Facebook. If you’re a member, you should join! This is a great way to reconnect with old rowing friends if you haven’t managed to track them down through the interwebs already. But don’t worry, important alumni-related information will still be posted here.
