Hello San Diego Notre Dame Family!
Quite a blustery end to January we’re having here in San Diego! Hopefully you are all safe and dry. The calendar for the next few months is starting to fill up with great opportunities to get out and socialize with fellow alumni and friends of Notre Dame.
A non-club event I’d like to bring to your attention is Dinner with the Pros, an annual dinner organized by legendary Irish kicker John Carney ’86. The event will take place Saturday, April 9th at the luxurious Omni La Costa Resort & Spa in Carlsbad. The event includes great food and famous athletes, and benefits local Catholic non-profit organizations. If you’re interested, visit the Dinner with the Pros website, or click here for a flyer.

2016 Crew Classic
Mission Bay, Crown Point Shores Park
It’s that time of year again! The ND Men’s Rowing team WILL BE HERE – April 1-3, 2016 for the San Diego Crew Classic. Rowing!! Eating!!! Socializing!!! 20 young men from Notre Dame will be out to compete with some of the best teams on the water for two days. There will be a hospitality tent for the team, alumni and friends – come out and join us. There are several ways YOU can help out!!!
HOST TEAM MEMBERS IN YOUR HOME: Can you host two-three of the men in your home for the weekend? If you live within 20 miles of Mission Bay and wouldn’t mind having a few crew team members crash at your place over the weekend, please let us know.
LOGISTICS OF THE WEEKEND: Are you willing to assist (pre-, during, or after the event) with the upcoming San Diego Crew Classic and the arrival of our Men’s Rowing team?
SPONSOR A PORTION OF THE WEEKEND: Be a Sponsor for the 2016 Crew Classic
Going back as far as we can recall, the Notre Dame Club of San Diego has hosted a tent at the annual Crew Classic on Mission Bay to provide our visiting Irish Crew Teams with a place to rest, fuel up, and socialize with the local Irish family. As the cost of providing this home-away from home has reached epic proportions, this year we’re asking for sponsorship help in funding the event. Here are some ideas for how you can help, but you’re welcome to “make your own sponsorship” as well.
- “hydration sponsorship” – $50
- “tent pole sponsorship” (10 poles available at $100 per pole)
- “feed the crew” sponsorship for $200,
- “cover the tent” at $1120
- “be part of the team” — any amount is appreciated!
Please email Karen Ron ’02 at email@example.com if you can help us put on this annual favorite!
