HOORAH FOR HOSPITALITY!
Cold, wet and hungry – three words that describe the typical Crew parent as we spend hours alongside a body of water, catching occasional glimpses of rowers through the trees and encouraging every rower wearing the Concord colors. Cold, wet, hungry, and burning a thousand calories – words that describe our athletes.
The Hospitality Committee’s goal is to make the Regatta experience as pleasant as possible for rowers and their families. We provide shelter (large canopies), stoves, grills, tables and utensils, all delivered in the Hospitality trailer. This equipment allows us to provide hot and cold beverages and nutritious pre-and post-race food even in locations remote from stores and restaurants. The canopies provide a nice place to socialize, get out of the weather, and pass the day while we wait for our boats to come down the course. The Hospitality Committee relies on parents to volunteer for jobs during the day. Each week the Hospitality Committee will plan a menu, shop and transport the food to the Regatta.
We use the seasonal Hospitality Fee charged at the beginning of the season, at registration time, to provide nutritious meals for our rowers and their families.
