Row From Here to Timbuktu..Join TEAM TIMBUK2 JVC09

Postby PJM » January 4th, 2009, 2:35 pm

The popular statement, " From here to Timbuktu." conjures up images of remote, isolated and distant parts of this earth


That is the mission of TIMBUK2..to row to distances beyond our wildest expectations.

This team has rowed with strength and spirit for a few years and has always had the indomitable spirit needed to row to distant parts of this earth..so join us for the JVC09 and help us continue our mission!!!

How to Join a Team: Information for Team Members
First, you'll need to find a team to join. This is not the same as your club affiliation in your profile. If you don't know of a team but want to participate, visit the Team/Club/University Challenge Corner in the Training Forum and post that you're looking for a team to join.
Establish an Online Logbook if you haven't already (it's FREE!).
To do so:
Visit the Online Logbook home page.
Click Register under New Users and follow the directions.
Join a team:
In your online logbook, click Teams at the top of the page.
In the Join a Team section, click Choose A Team and select a team from the list.
Click Select Team.

If the team has open membership, you will automatically be added to the team roster. If the team has closed membership (that is, membership by permission only), use the page provided to send an email to the Team Captain asking permission to join the team.
Indicate that you are actively participating in the current challenge:
In your online logbook, click Teams at the top of the page.
In the Team Challenge section, click the link provided to indicate your participation.
If you change your mind, you can leave the challenge using the Leave this Challenge link provided in the same location. You have until approximately two weeks into the current challenge to make changes; after that time, team membership and participation cannot change for the remainder of the challenge.
Enter all of your meters into your online logbook.
If you do not have access to a computer but want to participate as a team member, contact your Team Captain and ask if they would enter your meters for you. Due to the popularity of these challenges, we strongly encourage you to create your own online logbook and log your own meters to keep the workload manageable for the Team Captains. Team members without online logbooks do not need to indicate that they are participating in the challenge (step 4 above), as they are automatically considered part of the current challenge.
