    Deadline 2/20/18

    In an effort to be pro-active this year, we want to get all of our High School rowers pre-registered for States as soon as possible. They are very strict about this process so please read and follow the instructions below. We appreciate your help with this. Please send the requested documents/picture to support@soracrew.com or as a reply to this email.

    Returning rowers (see list below) only need to do step #1

    1. Current School Enrollment Documentation

    Documentation showing the athlete is currently enrolled in a Florida state secondary education program. The document must include 4 items: athlete’s name, institution attending, grade level or graduation year, and current date. Examples of acceptable forms that should have all 4 required items: class schedule, transcripts, report cards, ED-line info page, etc.


    2. Athlete Photo

    A recent digital photo of each athlete taken individually against a mono-color background with a clear view of their face (a referee looking at this photo must be able to recognize the athlete wearing the ID). Preferably the image should be no more than mid-torso up. No sunglasses or hats, caps, visors, etc. Photo should be taken in a portrait orientation and recommend files size is about 1MB (thumb nail size photos are not scalable and will be rejected). If it's a phone picture, send the full-size or original-size file.

    If you are not on the list at the end of this email, you also need to provide the following:

    3. Photo ID

    Any school or government issued photo ID with name and photo on it is acceptable. Examples: passport, county park ID, driver’s license, green card, military ID, etc. If the student does not have a photo ID, they can get a Florida ID from their local DMV office.

    4. Date of Birth

    If the school documents and photo ID submitted don’t have a Date of Birth listed, provide a copy of the athlete’s birth certificate.

    Election Results

    Last night we had our board elections for 2018 and the new board was unanimously approved.

    President - Phil Murphy
    1st VP - Lori Varro
    2nd VP - Mike Cogen
    Treasurer - Mike Shea
    Secretary - Kelly Hagan

    They will start their term on January 1st. Thank you to outgoing board members Ron Yelland (Treasurer) and Sarah Miller (Secretary) for your outstanding service to SORA.

    Fundraising Success

    So far we've had two spirit nights bringing in nearly $800. Thank you to all who came to McDonald's and Chipolte to support our cause. That money is going towards funding some new sculling oars and improving our launch motors.

    High School End of Year Awards Ceremony

    We're currently looking for high school parents (Freshman-Junior) to form a committee to plan our end of year ceremony to be held on May 25th (Venue TBD). Our Senior parents will contribute but we'd like to start a new tradition of them being able to enjoy this last awards ceremony without having to plan it. Please email support@soracrew.com if you are interested in helping.

    It's time for SORA Board of Directors Nominations and Elections. If you are interested in serving on the board, please use the link below to download the nominations form. Please read both the requirements for qualification and the attached bylaw sections about duties and responsibilities.

    Application: SORA Board of Directors Nomination Form 2017.pdf

    The application deadline will be 9pm on December 6th, 2017. No applications will be accepted after that time.

    You may nominate yourself or someone else but if you're nominating someone else, they will need to complete/submit the application by the deadline.

    There are only two ways to submit your nomination application:

    • Send an email with the nomination form attached to support@soracrew.com with the subject line: SORA Board Nomination Application. You must receive a reply confirming receipt of your application for it to be considered submitted.
    • Hand the form directly to our current Secretary, Sarah Miller who can be reached at 407-256-9129 if you want to make arrangements to meet her at the park during practice hours. Applications submitted this way will receive email confirmation from Sarah as proof of submission.

    No applications will be accepted if submitted any other way.

    Existing board members who wish to be considered for re-election must also submit an application.

    The elections will be held on Monday, December 11th at 6:00 PM at the Lake Nona YMCA. We will publish a slate of nominations after the 12/6 deadline and voting will take place in person at the meeting. If we have competing nominations for a single position(s) we will reach out to each nominee to make sure they want to run for a contested position or switch to an uncontested position if available. We encourage all nominees to be present at the election.

    When we announced that the Head of the Giblet was cancelled it took a race off the calendar of a lot of teams including ours. While we weren't ready to pull off the kind of regatta we've done in the past, Coach Terry wanted to make sure our rowers still got a chance to race and test themselves against a quality team. That turned into a two team dual/scrimmage against Sarasota Scullers and the day could not have gone better. SORA wants to thank the coaches, rowers and parents of Sarasota Scullers for making the trip. We look forward to seeing you throughout the year and having you back again next season.

    Over the weekend of 11th and 12th, our high school varsity rowers and a few masters traveled up to the Head of the South regatta in Augusta, Ga. All rowers put in a great effort and we brought home a few medals in the Women's Jr Lightweight 1x (1st), Women's Jr Novice 1x (2nd), Women's Jr 2x (3rd) and Men's Jr Novice 8+ (3rd).

    Congrats to all who went on the trip for braving the cold weather to represent SORA well!
