2013 Atlanta Erg Sprints


The planning for the 2013 Atlanta Erg Sprints is well underway. For 9 years, this event has been planned by GT Crew Alumni, and since 2004, it has raised over $44,000 total. Each year, as more alumni get involved and the attendance grows, the event becomes bigger and better. WILL YOU HELP?

A team of seven dedicated alumni plan the Atlanta Erg Sprints each year. For the event to grow even larger, and for it to be an even bigger fundraiser, more alumni participation is required.

Please glance at the areas below where we believe the Atlanta Erg Sprints could use enhancement. Contact AtlantaErgSprints@gmail.com if you would like to volunteer for any of the positions below.Some of these positions do not require you to live in Atlanta. None of them are very time consuming. Each position either directly adds to the fundraising total, or adds value to the event which will bring teams back year after year. This is a very valuable way to give back to GT Crew.

Event Merchandise

  • Ordering & purchase of merchandise (especially T-shirts)
  • Set prices
  • Set and clean up sales area
  • Schedule volunteers to assist

Sponsorship (volunteer can live outside of Atlanta)

Advertising (volunteer can live outside of Atlanta)

  • Contact rowing clubs, CrossFit gyms and indoor rowing clubs to spread word of event and get more participation

Race Announcers

  • Announce races about to start, races on deck, etc.
  • Announce winners and any new hammer records
  • Announce team point status
  • Remind them to buy t-shirts

Large TV Donations would also be welcome for the day of the event
