DOCK DAY - APRIL 25th at 11:30am 

On this day we will: put in the docks, clean out and prepare the boat house and move the weights from LWCC to the Boat House.

Please mark your calendars. Many hands are needed. 

With that in mind, we have an update on the spring / summer planning. 

There are three updates coming

1) training program schedules

2) mandatory volunteering policy

3) fees and registration details - included in this email

 

Training Schedule

We have 8 programs in addition to camp. Scheduling and staffing 30 training sessions a week is tricky to say the least. We are talking to a few people who have expressed an interest in assistant coaching. We need to finalize hiring and availability before we can provide a final training schedule. Please know we are working on it and will provide it as soon as we can. 

Mandatory Volunteering: 

As was shared in the Bingo email several weeks ago, we will require all members to contribute hours to the club to ensure that we, as a community, can cover all that needs to get done. Details will be shared in a separate email.
