On October 22, 2011, the Maryland Women's Crew Club hosted an Alumni & Family Day event to welcome a new racing shell to their fleet.
The day kicked off with a delicious brunch while family & friends mingled, caught up on current club happenings, and enjoyed the beautiful weather. Once everyone had a chance to grab a bite to eat, the club officers began the dedication of the new boat, complete with a sparkling cider christening!
The UMD Turtle Shell is a welcome addition to our fleet, made possible by an anonymous donor.
Club members are thrilled to have the opportunity to race in this beautiful new boat!
After the presentation, parents were able to get a feel for the sport & alumni were able to get back on the water! The club hosted a Family & Friends Row and allowed interested family members the opportunity to grab an oar and test their hand at rowing.
Everyone had a great time and the club hopes to make this Alumni & Family Day event an annual tradition. Interested in participating next year? Contact club president, Karen Dunford, at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more photos from the event, please check out the CRS Flickr Photostream.
