We have an Ergathon!

SORA Crew will be having an Ergathon Fundraiser during the week of November 2, 2020. The Ergathon is to raise funds to upgrade our fleet of boats and to be able to host our end of season celebrations.

Our club will commit to rowing 500,000 meters during this week. This goal will be shared between our High School and Middle School rowers, and our Masters rowers and SORA staff. We are asking all High School and Middle School rowers to participate and seek sponsorship for their meters rowed. Each rower should have a goal (10,000 meters for HS, 5,000 meters for MS) to help us reach our 500,000 meters goal.

Let’s support our rowing community by supporting SORA's effort to build a fleet to compete effectively at our regattas. There will be prizes for: Most Funds Raised (1 for High School and 1 for Middle School) and Most Meters Rowed (1 for Varsity, 1 for Sophomore/Freshmen, 1 for Middle School). In addition, families who contribute over $150 will see their name proudly displayed on the team banner on race day at regattas.

Erging will take place at Moss Park during weekday practice. To ensure we are social distancing, coaches will hold different erging sessions during the week of November 2 during regular practice time. At the end of each row, a picture of the erg monitor display showing the number of meters rowed in order to provide evidence for sponsors.
