Spring Break

Saturday, April 12, 2014 New/Updated!

The docks are in, the water is clear of debris, boats are rigged, and land practice is getting boring. Spring break is our chance to get water-ready for the Toga Invitational, April 26th, one of the largest regattas in the world. Last I heard, there were over 1300 boats registered. Over break we need rowers at practice on time, ready to seriously prepare for this exciting spring season. I see some great potential for Shen this season, and we are far behind on water practice. This season is one weekend after the next starting the 26th: Toga Invite, Sectionals, States, Stotesbury, Nationals, Mod champs, Toga Nationals, Banquet.

Varsity/Freshmen, if you have not booked rooms for Stotesbury... get on it please.

We are going to start using a new system to get messages out to parents and athletes. It is a one-way messaging system for crew to send out notifications. This will allow anyone signed up (from as many devices and addresses as they like) to receive text messages, and takes about 30 seconds to subscribe to receive the messages. We will use these messages to send out announcements, practice cancellations and reminders. It is free to use, and if you wish to unsubscribe you simply text "stop" to the number.

To sign up for these text reminders simply text the code for the group you wish to join to (518) 633-1673 and that's it. You may join as many groups as you want, and leave any groups in the future.

Raise Money With GoodSearch

Monday, January 28, 2013

Please get on board now! We started with only 2 supporters 2 weeks ago, and have gotten up to 15 supporters. By doing nothing different except using a different search engine these 15 supporters have raised $4.00 in less than 2 weeks. Please help us turn this $4.00 into $40 and eventually $400!

Here is a very simple way to help Shen Crew out. GoodSearch.com uses a Yahoo! powered search engine. Every time you search using GoodSearch.com, they will donate about a penny to your favorite nonprofit (hopefully you choose Friends of Shenendehowa Crew). It's that simple.

In addition, do all of your shopping through their online shopping mall, GoodShop.com, where you can shop at more than 2,600 top online retailers and a percentage of your purchases will go to the charity or school of your choice. You pay the same price as you normally would, but a donation goes to your cause!

You can also enroll in the GoodDining program. Eat at over 10,000 participating restaurants nationwide and you can earn up to 6% of every dollar spent on the meal as a donation for your charity or school.

Here's the web site — http://www.goodsearch.com/ . You can also read about GoodSearch in the NY Times, Oprah Magazine, CNN, ABC News and the Wall Street Journal.

This is an easy way for you to help Shen Crew by doing the things that you already do, and it is of no cost at all to you! Please help us out and sign up for GoodSearch.
