Please let me know if: –

 

Returning Varsity rower has tried on her Uni and will require a NEW one for this season

 

Returning Rower (previous novice) needs a UNI

 

UNI doesn’t FIT?????

 

if you have a Uni that can be passed along to a member of the team please let me know size and we may be able to pass along to another rower

 

Once I hear from parents I will forward instructions for sizing and cost.

 

Your prompt response is greatly appreciated as the Uni order will need to be placed no later than August 24th in order to have them in time for Lift Bridge.  Any questions, I can be reached at 585-414-7309 or email bpsermar@gmail.com
