Registration includes the banquet dinner and programming on Saturday evening, in addition to the alumni regatta and lunch at University Lake on Saturday morning. There may be other optional events over the course of the weekend that have additional associated costs.
The registration fee is designed to cover all of our costs, but does not include any donation to the team or the boathouse project. If you’d like to make additional donations you can do that. We don’t want anyone to feel like they were invited back for their checkbook. We want you to come for the celebration.
How do I buy UNC Crew branded items?
Alumni and friends can buy UNC Crew items through the team, alumni association websites or via the reunion website (alumni.unc.edu/crew). Items purchased in advance of the reunion can be picked up at the alumni regatta or the reunion dinner.
Who makes up the UNC Crew 50th Anniversary Team?
The 50th anniversary reunion is about celebrating all rowing at UNC and its personal impact on the lives of so many.
Reunion representatives come from 50 years of undergraduate and masters athletes, coaches, sport slubs, Campus Recreation, Athletics, UNC General Alumni Association and Student Affairs.
Our objective is to bring back as many alumni as possible to connect, celebrate, and support rowing in all its forms April 3-5, 2020.
Why is a UNC development officer involved?
The Office of Development has a tradition of helping rowing at Carolina. Since our first reunion, back in the early 2000s, there has always been one or more development officers from the University advising, working with and funding our effort to raise funds for a more sustainable club.
As much as we would like to claim total victory without any outside help, the University is our partner and offers some professional resources (human and otherwise) that we simply don’t have.
Few would count on a lawyer to provide salient medical advice when injured — we would be foolish to turn down free fundraising help from a professional development officer.
