Class Day BBQ with the Team

The Class Day BBQ is served up by the Washington Rowing Stewards to the team and is free (donations accepted) to all of the parents, friends and alums at the crewhouse immediately following the Class Day races on the 28th.

On the menu are beef, chicken or garden burgers; hot dogs; chips, cookies, and a beverage, and maybe apples from an eastern Washington alum and maybe candy bars if we're hungry when we do the shopping.

Class Day Awards, including the naming of the 2015 captains, inspirational athletes, and academic award winners, begin about 11:30. 

The BBQ will begin about 11:00, or when the coals are hot.  It is served up on a first come, first served basis - once the food is gone it's gone - so get there early!  See you there --

And thank you to the Rowing Stewards who make this event happen each year!
