SPRING SEASON STARTS MARCH 30

Hello rowers and coxswains, old-timers and new members alike! 

Hope you're all super excited to begin our spring season! We'll most likely aim for the first week of April, but that will depend on the the ice conditions in the Charles River (apparently the ice is currently about a 17" thick!) ... We'll keep you posted!

In the meantime, be sure to complete our begin of season survey for experienced and novice rowers:

Novices:

Please do so as soon as possible as we rely on these numbers in order to define several things (# of coaches, # of boats, etc). The deadline to complete the survey is Wednesday, March 18, but don't wait to get it done!

Also note that we'll have a mandatory meeting on Monday, March 30, 6am at the Pierce Boathouse where we'll give general information about the club and talk about details of the upcoming Spring Season.

Hope to see you all there!

Your MITRC Co-Presidents,

Amy and Joao
