May 2017 CCAC Meeting Recap

Thanks to @CrozetCommunity for tweeting it. (I wonder how/if any other Crozetians would be interested in attending/tweeting?)

Some interesting nuggets in here … I can’t underestimate how important both the meetings are, and the need for citizen attendance and oversight.

Update – here’s the video of the meeting, thanks to the Crozet Gazette.

CCAC Meeting – 17 May 2017

This is important stuff, folks. It’s easy to focus on national politics, but local is where we can have impact and influence. Sunlight is good, and explicit oversight and awareness (ie: butts in seats at meetings) is better.

WAHS Crew Win Virginia State Regatta Championships



Western Albemarle Crew had a fantastic showing at the Virginia State Regatta Championships this weekend in Occoquan.

From The Beaver Creek Sculling blog: (read the whole thing)

Western Albemarle’s Crew team entered ten boats in the Virginia State Rowing Championships hosted this past Saturday by the Virginia Scholastic Rowing Association and brought home eight medals: four gold, two silver and two bronze.

Both the women’s and the men’s senior quads dominated their races; a particularly satisfying accomplishment for the WAHS men’s quad as they had never won that event. Peter Dister, Noah Davis, both juniors, and seniors Spencer Hale and Wiley Martin rowed the quad to the win, automatically qualifying to compete at the Scholastic National Championships later this month.

The women’s senior quad had quite a legacy to uphold; it had not only won the State Championships, but had gone on to row to gold in the 2016 Scholastic National Championships. Two of the members of the 2016 quad graduated, but team captain Carrie Smith and Maggie Vidal, both seniors returned and the team added senior Grace von Elten and junior Hannah Carter to continue the quad’s winning tradition.


Results –

5 Gold, 2 Silver, 2 Bronze, 2 Fourth!!

The men’s team won in the men’s quad, scored a 3rd in the men’s double, a second in the men’s junior double, won in the men’s lightweight single and men’s junior single.
The women’s team won in the women’s quad, were also 3rd by .1 seconds with women’s junior quad, 2nd and 4th in the women’s lightweight double, 4th in the women’s junior double and won in the women’s junior single.
