The Arlington Rowing Association is running an October car wash fundraiser with support from Foam and Wash. Rowers are able to purchase vouchers/coupons for a car wash at all Foam and Wash locations worth $10.00. The rower can sell the car wash vouchers for $8.00 each and the rower keeps $4.00 and Foam and Wash gets $4.00.
Example: purchase 5 car wash vouches at $8.00 each = $40.00. Foam and Wash gets $20 and the rower gets $20.
Rowers/ parents must pay for the vouchers first and then they keep the profit from the sale.
For more information please contact Gina Spagnoli (Ginams928@yahoo.com) or Mary Beth Ellman (firstname.lastname@example.org). A copy of the flier is available below:

2015 Arlington Crew – The Rules
FALL, 2015 SWIMMING CERTIFICATION
Registration for the Fall 2015 Season is now available.
The cost is $500 and the season runs from 9/5/2015 to 11/7/2015.
There are 2 options for registration.
- JV/Varsity (rower must have completed two seasons as a Novice)
- Novice (no experience is necessary)
Novice registration has a more flexible reimbursement policy, 100% if made within the first 4 weeks versus prorated from 9/5/2015. There is a late fee of $50 for registrations not completed by 9/15/2015. Registration must be completed prior to participation.
Each family is expected to volunteer for 10 hours (this is not per rower). There is a $100 deposit that is collected during registration. This deposit is refundable following completion of the 10 hours of service, as documented on the Volunteer Card.
Returning rowers may have positive account balances as a result of last year’s fundraising events and/or erg deposits. To apply your balance to the registration fee you will need to request a Coupon from the Treasurer (send an email request to email@example.com). There is also a 10% discount per rower for families with more than one rower. You will need a Coupon if you need to apply the 10% discount.
Registration is also available for the Modified program. The modified Program is open to all 7th and 8th graders attending either UVMS or LMS. The cost is $250 and runs from 9/5/2015 to 11/7/2015. Rowers will learn the fundamentals of rowing and work with the Novice program coaches. Rowers in the Modified Program will not participate in any of the races, but will be encouraged to attend the home races. At the discretion of the coaches, rowers may be asked to move up from the Modified Program based on ability. To the extent the rower moves up, they will be expected to pay the cost associated with the team they are placed on.

Watch Arlington Crew rowers in action:
In an effort to increase the quantity of new 8th and 9th grade rowers (especially new boys), the Arlington Rowing Association implemented a Rower Recruitment Incentive Program. The following are details of the program:
- Applies to registrations of new rowers for the Novice Programs and 8th Grade Learn to Row Program
- The new Rower needs to register online and indicate in the registraion the name of the existing rower that recruited him/her
- The existing rower that recruited the new rower receives a credit to their account at end of season (the new rower needs to complete the season)
- The incentive rates are 10% for new Boy and 8% for new Girl (i.e. Novice Boy = 10% of $500 = $50, 8th Grade Learn to Row Girl = 8% of $200 = $16, etc.)
- Please direct any questions to the Arlington Rowing Association President or Treasurer.
