The Montclair High School Crew Team will host the second annual Erging Auction on Sunday, January 24th, from 1:00-4:00 p.m., in the MHS main gym on Midland Avenue. The team is raising funds to help purchase a new boat trailer to transport MHS’s growing fleet to regattas.

The Ergathon features the Montclair High School Crew team and middle school rowers in exciting indoor rowing races.

The Ergathon Silent Auction and Basket Raffle offer luxury items ranging from vacation stays in Florida and Vermont to spa treatments, fitness packages, beauty baskets, designer accessories, jewelry, tickets to TV shows, restaurant gift certificates, and even a Concept 2 Erg (a rowing machine).

The fun kicks off at 1 p.m. with a parade featuring all 21 teams in “Battle of the Bands” costume. The highlight of the event is the indoor rowing competitions, beginning at 2 p.m. There will be competitive 4K-meter relay races for members of the MHS Crew Team, a 1000-meter race for participants of the middle school rowing program, and a 500-meter race for parents who participated in the training program at Groove Indoor Rowing @ 3 Sixty Cycling Studio. All races will be shown on a large venue racing screen and medals will be awarded.

Please join us for an energizing winter afternoon! Admission is free and open to anyone interested in supporting the MHS Crew Team or learning about Crew. See the MHS Crew team in action. The erg machines will be humming and the DJ will be spinning.
