Oars for Eagles
When the Embry-Riddle Crew Club was founded, it was always the hope of Coach Paul Quinn that the team would eventually work its way into the athletic department and become a varsity sport. After 26 years, that time has finally come. I was fortunate enough to be tabbed as the Director of Rowing for the new varsity program in August. Shortly afterwards, Bob Van Twyver, the current club's head coach, was named the men's head coach.
I've been lucky enough to spend time working with the club team to learn first-hand the unique challenges and opportunities to be addressed once the varsity rowing program begins its first year. As many of you will understand, the equipment we have is adequate but there simply is not enough of it to meet the needs of this growing team. Your team needs your help.
Our immediate need is for a new set of oars. Our goal is to raise $4,600 in order to buy a set of Concept2 oars. Please help support Embry-Riddle Rowing as we work to make you proud of your legacy.
Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions.
