One More Month of Fall Rowing!

Hello Mercer friends and family,

There will be NO PRACTICE this Friday and Sunday for all teams (10/20 and 10/22). Please look for instructions from your coach about alternate workouts for these days! Our coaching staff will largely be in Boston racing/coaching boats at the Head of the Charles, so check out the live stream for the weekend here.

This week, please encourage your rower(s) to check the lost and found box in the erg room. We will be donating the clothing to Home Front on Monday (10/23). The coaches are also finding numerous plastic water bottles around the boathouse after practices. We want to encourage rowers to bring reusable nalgenes or water bottles to practice with their names written on them to help prevent waste.

This weekend was a successful showing for the Masters Team at the Navy Day regatta! The women’s 8+ won their division and was the fastest Masters 8+ on the water the whole day! The women’s 4+ also won their division and was the second fastest 4+ of the day. Their next race will be at the Head of the Charles this weekend and will feature a women’s and men’s 4+. Good luck!

Patagonia orders will be accepted until Wednesday night so please see this blog post for a link to the order form! Our Nike gear should all be in by Friday, with the exception of the Men’s Medium polos (which will be shipping soon). Please remind your rower to pick up his/her gear!

TopGolf tickets are still available for our Fall Fundraiser Event. There will be auction items including private rowing lessons and even a Tuscan Villa! This event is November 19th, and proceeds will be going to our boathouse’s expansion.

PNRA will be hosting a screening of the documentary ‘Dare to Be’ on December 17th at 10 AM. All PNRA friends and family are encouraged to attend this event at the Princeton Garden Theater; tickets will be on sale soon! For more information on the film check out the website.
