Nebraska Crew Alumni Banquet
Last night was our Crew Club's Alumni Banquet. George and I were honored with the awards of oarsman/oarswoman of the year. This award goes to the MVP rower from each team. We were both very excited to receive this honor and thank all of our teammates who voted for us!
We also were wonderfully surprised by the team when they called us up to present us with a donation for our Atlantic Row. Words cannot express how thankful we are to have such wonderful teammates. It is truly a blessing to have a family away from home that is so supportive of our adventure. We are looking forward to rowing with all of them next year and keeping them involved in our planning for the Atlatic crossing.
We also would like to thank Robin & Randy Ruhl and Billy Coghill for their generous donations! We are truly thankful for all the support we have gotten so far.
A small update on our progress...We met with a team from UNL Student Involvement last week and they agreed to make a promotional video for us. This video will be used on our crowdfunding site KriticalMass. Once we get up and running on the website we will let everyone know how to donate if they are interested.
We also met with the Assistant Athletic Director at UNL. The meeting went well and he seemed to be genuinely interested in what we are doing. He is going to send our information along to some other important people at the University and then we will go from there.
Again, thank you to everyone who has helped us on our journey so far!
