Committee Planning:

Website: Mike Ward is “moving” the rowing website over to Word Press – Mike is currently training Scott Orwig to take over as our IT guy.
We need to renew both domain names: rowing and crew. The cost is $32 per year.
Each board member will take a page or pages of the current website and make revisions/updates to them for Mike/Scott to upload to the new website.

Food: The committee needs a month to inventory.
Cecilyne Penny will hand out surveys at the new rower meeting. The survey will ask the team about their favorite meals, snacks, etc.

Cooking: The team needs more volunteers for this committee.

Lodging Accommodations: Jeff Cox has volunteered to take over for Judy Inge.

Photography: Nicole Bergren is stepping down this year. We will need another volunteer to take team photos along with Heide Pfannes.
