Crew Yard Sale

posted Apr 28, 2017, 5:30 AM by WCBC Webmaster   [ updated Apr 28, 2017, 5:32 AM ]

Below is the sign up for the yard sale on Saturday, 5/6.  If you won't be at the regatta that morning, we would love for you to sign up to help out during the sale.  If you will be at the regatta, you can still help out by donating items ahead of time.  We can't make money if we don't have items to sell so please take a little time this week and clean out a closet, kitchen cabinet, toy chest, book shelf, etc.  Every little bit helps.

UPDATE! Mulch Fundraiser moved to Sunday, April 30th

posted Apr 17, 2017, 6:49 AM by WCBC Webmaster   [ updated Apr 22, 2017, 9:43 AM ]

Due to a rain delay, the Westfield Crew Team's biggest volunteer event -- spreading mulch-- will now take place on Sunday April 30th.  Your support is needed!

Mulchers & Drivers: To Sign-Up to Mulch or Drive, please click here.  Mulchers and drivers should meet at 8:30 a.m. at the Virginia Run Community Center, 15355 Wetherburn Ct., Centreville.

Food Donation: Our rowers get extremely hungry after hours of spreading mulch, so it is our tradition to reward them with a special BBQ lunch and gathering after they finish their hard work.  Parents are expected to help contributing with food and logistics for this event.   Instructions can be found via the sign-up links below.

For food & drinks donations, please click here.
To contribute tables, chairs, etc., please click here.  
 

Summer Rowing (2017)

posted Apr 15, 2017, 4:42 AM by WCBC Webmaster

Westfield Crew will not be offering a summer program for 2017.  Instead, current and prospective crew team members are encouraged to attend one of the many other summer rowing programs offered by schools and organizations in Virginia and Maryland.  See Summer Programs for a list of some of the camps available this summer.

Regatta Food

posted Mar 29, 2017, 11:28 AM by WCBC Webmaster

In addition to providing food for the March 31st pre-regatta dinner (see previous announcement), please check to see if you are scheduled to provide food for the April 1st regatta by clicking HERE.  

We have divided the team in groups and each rower's family has been assigned one item to bring on a rotating basis. Items should be delivered on Friday night, to allow us to organize and setup everything.

We are also in need of 2 helpers to oversee the tent in 2 shifts during the day. This allows the kids to have our support while both volunteer parents are able to watch the part of the regatta they want. Please look at the list of jobs at sign up genius to enlist for this important position. You will earn 1 point per hour. 

Make sure you:
1. Click on the link above to confirm your contribution by Thursday,  March 30th
2. Deliver the food item during the day but no later than 8:00pm, on Friday, March 31st. at 6266 Welton Drive, Centreville, 20120, where the Carrasco family will organize everything.
3. Food Donations must be ready to eat and be enough for 10-12 rowers. 

This upcoming Regional Park Regatta is your chance to collaborate and we highly appreciate it.
