Annual Erg-a-thon 2019
This past Thursday September 5th and Friday September 6th was our annual erg-a-thon. In this event, the team sets up our tent outside of the Union on campus along with two ergs. Each team member signs up for an hour of erging, and together we continue rowing on these machines for a full 24 hours!
The erg-a-thon is hosted by the team in order to help spread the word of the existence of our club an hopefully get some new recruits. This year we also set up a fundraising link where parents and friends could help support the team during the 24 hours.
Despite the hard work, participating team members always have fun encouraging each other or talking with interested students about our club. Some passerby even decided to give erging a try! In total, we managed to erg a total of 438,560 meters!
