CAMBRIDGE, MA (September 6, 2016) - The MIT Rowing Club (MITRC) opened its Fall 2016 season with a packed house for the MITRC General Meeting, held Tuesday, September 6, 2016. Almost 100 new and returning members were in attendance, enjoying coffee and doughnuts while Co-Presidents Chris and Sunny provided an overview of the Club and its competitive (Comp), recreational (Rec), and Learn-To-Row (LTR) programs. Other Club officers covered a broad range of topics such as safety, gear, equipment, coxing, land training, dock preparation, and the scheduling format. Following the General Meeting, newly minted members of the Learn-To-Row program were given a tour of the boathouse. With the meeting adjourned, MITRC's Fall 2016 Season is officially underway ... GO TECH!

Put your ground-breaking research on hold, release some stress, and get to know your fellow rowers off the water with MITRC's "Happy Hour" Group. Join us each week as we take time to socialize (and build esprit de corps!) off the water. The date/time/place of the happy hour changes from week to week, so keep an eye out for the weekly email or join the MITRC Happy Hour group on WhatsApp.

And remember:
1- Happy Hours are strictly voluntary. If you can't make it this week, don't worry, we will have another social the next week. 
2- You don't need to drink alcohol to join us, I'll buy the first round of tap water :)
3- If you have a preference for day/time/place, send me an email with your suggestion, and I'll make it happen.
4- Feel free to bring friends/family/guests!

- Namir Jawdat, MITRC Social Chair
