2017 Concept2 Virtual Team Challenge

January 1 - January 31

Concept2 2017 Virtual Team Challenge VTC

Now that I am mostly recovered from my bout of rowing pneumonia and am just starting to recover from the ravages of a full course of Levaquin, I am really looking forward to taking up the virtual oar and take to the annual Concept2 Virtual Team Challenge from January 1-31, 2017.  Please come aboard and join me on Team Grotto — we have plenty of room and we’re an open virtual team so the more the merrier. You can find Team Grotto on Facebook and on the Team Grotto Concept2 Log page.

The Virtual Team Challenge (VTC), runs every year from January 1–31.  Each team completes as many meters as they can collectively between 12:00 a.m. January 1 and 11:59 p.m. January 31.  This is a team challenge. You must belong to a team to participate. This is not the same as your club affiliation in your profile. See “Information for Team Members” below.  Teams must consist of at least two (2) people. Team members will not appear on challenge boards until at least two people are taking part.

Virtual teams (not based on or around a specific physical location) can be made up of anyone from anywhere who wants to participate—friends, family, co-workers, old schoolmates, rowing teammates, and so on.

Anyone who participates in the challenge is eligible for the following incentives and rewards, regardless of how many meters are completed:

  • A free downloadable certificate of achievement
  • The option to purchase Virtual Team Challenge items at our third-party vendor (availability varies by country)
  • Inclusion on the Virtual Team Challenge Honor Board—a list of all the teams and team members participating in the challenge.
