February 1, 2011: Seventeen alumni pitched in to row 1,142,275 meters in the annual C2 January Virtual Team Challenge (JVTC). For the challenge rowers had to row as many meters as possible between January 1 and January 31 then log their daily meters using the Concept 2 Logbook. The results were then ranked against other teams. The SARA team finished in 91st place out of 291 teams with each member averaging over 60,000m. Thank you to everyone that participated.

This year marked the second time a concerted effort was made to log meters for this challenge and the second time we bested our URA rivals from the University of Chicago. We beat their alumni team, but were passed by the students (a separate ranking group) who pulled 1.6 million meters. Rowers from WRRA only managed 381,215 meters, but were hampered by no access to the boathouse ergs. CRF was still working on the occupancy permit for the new boathouse so a number of their members could not post meters.

Team Results: Team Total Meters # Rowers Avg. Meters/Rower
