The school year is just around the corner, so here is some information about the callouts that will be happening in the coming weeks. First, if you visit the New Rowers page, you can read a letter from the president and get additional information about the callouts. We will also be present at many BGR events, where you can talk to current rowers and coaches, while learning more about the club. We will also display our racing shells at various points on the campus, so you can take a closer look at what we row with.
Feel free to contact us with the questionnaire, or stop by any of our callouts or booths, so we can help you join and become key members of the 2014 novice class. We look forward to seeing you!

Purdue Crew takes home two brand new ergs from their conquests at the Chicago Indoor Rowing Championships. This indoor rowing championship saw many victories across the board for our team. Purdue Crew took CIRCs by storm and left everyone in the dust. We hope that next year we will see even more competitors from our team to represent Purdue in this erg race.
Crew members Bobby Jones, Ryan Roby, Fred Jorgenson, Drew Stover, Mike Frick, and Mike Reichert with Purdue Crew's ergs won at CIRC

Lots of fun and a nice mental break from winter training came today on the last day of January. It's also the day before our annual Row-a-thon, so our women's team decided to take a shift in terms of practice and instead of doing a traditional workout, that they'd play a game of flag football out in the beautiful snow.
Just a reminder, that Row-a-thon does begin tomorrow. Shifts are as follows.
