Sunday, February 23rd is our Spring Parent Social. Due to popular demand, we are bringing back our Chili Cook-Off. A few years have gone by and the Coaches are now ready to sample everyone’s chili again. Traditional, Non-Traditional, and Vegetarian versions are requested. Since we can’t live on chili alone, non-chili-making parents please bring an appetizer, salad or dessert to share.

Please come to River Landing, 245 Azalea Drive, Roswell from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. In addition to sampling lots of great food, this is your chance to talk to the coaches one-on-one, to meet other rower’s parents, or have a night out by the river with old friends. It is great fun and we hope that you can join us!
