About

Ottawa New Edinburgh Club has entered a team in the Concept 2 Virtual Team Challenge every year since 2006, started by Gillian Williamson. This coming year will be the fifteenth anniversary for the club’s participation. COVID-19 has complicated participation because access to rowing machines in gyms and fitness centers will be restricted; nevertheless, our team has grown to five members, and information about renting an erg can be provided. I'm optimistic that we will continue our longstanding tradition of ONEC's participation. The VTC offers an excellent opportunity to practice and maintain rowing skills in the off-season. The rules are simple: during the month of January row as much as your personal circumstances permit and enter your distance and time in your Concept 2 log. If you do not have a log, one may be established at log.concept2.com/login. Thereafter, you indicate on the Team page that you want to join the team "Ottawa New Edinburgh Club" For those with logs you need only go your log, click on Team page and indicate you are signing up for the VTC. If anyone has problems, the HELP line is very obliging. I do request that each participant provide me in confidence with an estimate of the number of meters that s/he expects to achieve. The numbers are totaled and that becomes the team’s goal which is communicated to all. This process worked well last year and encouraged participants during the final week to extra effort and to surpass the goal.

You can also join this program via the mobile app.
