Come out on Sat, Sept 26th, 2020 from 8 - 11 am to watch as New Canaan Crew hosts their annual “Erg-a-Thon” rowing exhibition.
Held at the New Canaan Pop-up Park on the intersection of Elm Street and South Avenue in downtown New Canaan, the event will feature a demonstration on the use of the "erg" (a machine equipped with a sliding seat, designed to simulate rowing). and other opportunities to learn more about rowing. All of the New Canaan Crew rowers will be on hand for the event, designed to raise funds and seek sponsorships to purchase new equipment for the program. You will also see teammates strolling downtown New Canaan to collect donations to support the effort.
As a club sport, the program is self-funded and not eligible for booster funding. The “shells" (boats) and the various equipment required to maintain a crew team are very expensive. The team is grateful to the New Canaan community for it's support in years past and hopes it can continue.
