This Week at Mercer: 10/5-10/11

Before we get going, we’ve got to say a giant THANK YOU to all who planned for, set up for, cooked for, cleaned up from, and joined in the fun at Oktoberfest last weekend.  The boathouse and bay looked so festive; the food was delicious; the company was terrific, and a great time was had by all.  A special thanks goes to Kris Grudt for roasting the perfect pig and for providing such a great event to celebrate at Mercer!


Here’s what’s coming up:

It’s race time!

Regatta season has arrived for the varsity team!  Select Mercer varsity rowers will compete in the Navy Day Regatta on the Schuylkill River in Philadelphia this weekend (Saturday, 10/10) and in the 51st Head of the Charles Regatta in Boston the following weekend (Friday, 10/16-Sunday, 10/18).  Coaches and parent coordinators will be posting quite a bit of information throughout the week on this blog, so please check back regularly for boat lineups and regatta information.

To kick off the season, there will be an ALL VARSITY PASTA PARTY at the boathouse onFriday, October 9 after the athletes have finished loading the boat trailer.  That’s a lot of hungry mouths to feed, so we will need your help to make this happen.  Please check out the Lucky Potluck sign-up for information and please sign up to contribute a dish to the party.

Gear sale ends soon!

The gear sale ends on Friday (10/9) – all JL and Nike/Patagonia/Gamex orders are due by the end of this week.  Click here for all ordering information and forms.

Thank you again for all you do!
