The CRF Board discussed the annual New Year's Day Row that many crews have taken advantage of in the past. With the safety updates to the
SaM, any shell going out on New Year's Day requires a launch to accompany it. Sean, our maintenance director, has been working on the launches
since the season ended. At this point, they are all taken apart and out of the water. If anyone is in need of a launch for Jan. 1st, please send a note
recovery. If the launches are not needed, we don't want to waste precious time preparing them. Since the USRowing Waiver that CRF requires
ends Dec 31st, anyone on the water must sign a waiver for 2013 as well. Waivers will be posted at the boathouse that day. I will be on vacation
until January 2nd but will do my best to coordinate requests for a launch.
