Hello fellow rowers!

I hope this message is coherent--I'm still a bit dazed from our morning work
out--so please excuse any gaps of logic...

The University of Texas (at Austin) Rowing Team is looking for a few good
boats, specifically a hvywt men's & women's 8s. Also some good used
blades. The Austin Rowing Club (whose facilies we use) is getting a bit
ticked at the fact that we have not added a boat to the house in 4+ years
that was only an '84 Vespoli 8. So, if you've got something for sale,
reply to my e-mail address and let me know!

Also, do any of you university crews or clubs have any suggestions for
successful fundraising? This area is our Achilles heel and we need help!

Thanks for any insights you might have!

On the subject of fundraising:

We are about to try a "Rent A Rower" fundraiser in which Joe public pays a rower by
the hour to do some kind of work.  We are charging $6.50/hour and advertising to all
of the faculty and local papers for work. Supposidly the faculty here really go for
this type of thing.

The usual car wash....

Auction a rower: this is where other students get to bid on rowers to do things for
them for a day.  We haven't done it yet, but other clubs have had a great sucess.  
They use one of the bars/resteraunts and it is run as a fun thing with an auctioneer
that can keep the crown amused... usually throwing out whitty comments about the
person that is up for auction.

Also, if you think that your boat situation is bad, check us out: 107 rowers have
paid dues and we only have 3 eights and 2 fours all of which are intercollegite
Schoenbrods.  ACK!  Anyone out there want to sell us some good used stuff?
