We had a HUGE turnout for our Xmas festive fun day last Saturday resulting in lots of side by side 8s racing in scratch crews. The athletes represented the breadth of our membership: young and old(er), those who have barely started their rowing careers to those who have been rowing for more years than they probably care to remember. Costumes were suitably Christmassy - elves, antlers, tinsel, Santa hats, and a few preferring more Dickensian (bah humbug) attire. Many thanks to IJ and Sue Johnson for organising the event, to our coxes Steve J (AKA Coxing Santa) and Heather, Charlie (AKA Safety Launch Santa), George and children for setting up and clearing away, Chris W for being master of ceremonies, and to the many people who brought food to share.
Saturday 30th September is a maintenance and repair day at the new clubhouse. There will be no rowing.
There will be scaffolding, lifting and shifting and tinkering so come prepared.
After last nights AGM we have some changes to the Committee.
Robert Dibley was elected as Chair.
Sandra Burne was elected as Captain.
Stephen Rose and Scott Carpenter return as Treasurer and Secretary respectively.
The Committee Members are:
Thank you to those members that attended, and to those that offered their apologies.
The next Annual General Meeting for Gloucester Rowing Club will take place on Monday 18th September at 1930 at the new boathouse. Refreshments will be provided.
Please find below the final versions of the draw for Saturday and Sunday, we have had to make a couple of amendments due to status changes from wins over the weekend. We look forward to seeing you all at the weekend.
