What?! Winter points? Yes. Winter points.


How about a friendly competition between alumni? How many points can you get this winter? Competition starts November 23rd and ends on the first day of Spring Semester. If we get Alumni participants, perhaps we can set up a little challenge with the current team?? If you're interested, please fill out the form below. We are working on an additional form for you to fill out with your completed points. Remember, this is on the honor system.

The GTCA winner will receive a gift from the GTCA Merchandise Department. We are currently designing many new items... one of which is a FLASK bearing the words "Never go dry again."

GTCA Bonus Points
These points will not be included in any challenge with the team but will provide any Alumni with an advantage over other alumni.
1 pt - one ghost membership to GTCA (1 point for every ghost membership)
10 pt - volunteer for the Atlanta Erg Sprints (because this event happens in February, you will need to make it known to our Events Coordinator that you plan on volunteering)
20 pt - actually ROW in the Atlanta Erg Sprints (all 2000 meters) (again - this happens in February, so you will need to let us know you plan on participating)

A rowers character is defined by what one does when nobody is watching.
Pump it up, Champ.
