BENEFITING: Capital Rowing Club, Inc.
As most of you know, we never got blades to go with our new 8+. We have been using a spare set that were not purchased with our program and rowing style in mind. The oars to the Liquid are close to 15 years old. After speaking with Concept2, Guennadi, Gretchen and others - we believe the right oars for our men's program are the Smoothie2 Vortex Edge blade and Skinny shaft.The cost for each oar is $425 and there is a flat fee shipping cost of $115 for up to 20 sticks. We feel fairly confident that we can raise the funds from amongst ourselves to purchase a set of eight oars now. But hope there is the capacity to raise funds for all twelve. If you feel comfortable asking family to contribute - we welcome support from any generous soul. Thanks for contributing what you can. Every little bit will help us reach our goal.
