Fox Chapel crew team will host a relay race fundraiser on March 9 at Aspinwall Riverfront Park.

It’s too cold to hit the Allegheny River, but rowers can practice relay work during a flash fundraiser this weekend at Aspinwall Riverfront Park.

The Fox Chapel Crew team and the park board are hosting an indoor rowing race beginning at 8:45 a.m. March 9.

Proceeds benefit Fox Chapel Crew and Aspinwall Riverfront Park.

Teams of three people can join crew members to compete for the most total meters rowed on stationery machines. The winning team will receive medals.

The contest is open to teens (seventh grade or older) to senior citizens.

Cost is $100 for a three-person team or $35 per individual. Middle schoolers pay $25 each.

Crew Coach Mark Bellinger said team money will be used to help cover costs of moving to its new home at the park along River Road.

The team last year fundraised to buy low-profile docks and a gangway that would make the move possible, Bellinger said. Cost was $200,000.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
