Trivia Night

Our annual Trivia Night is on Saturday, 12th September.

Come to Galactica, to prove your worth in answering curly questions.

Don't miss out! Buy your tickets online.


The Annual General Meeting of the Leichhardt Rowing Club will be held at the club on Sunday 30th August 2015 at 10.30am.

The annual report will be presented and the Committee for next year will be voted in by current financial qualifying members. Members entitled to vote according to the constitution include Life Members, Senior Competitor Members and Full Time Student Members over 18 years old.

Nominations have been received and we seem likely to have a good committee next year but if you would like to nominate for the committee you still have time. Just download the form, have it signed by a qualifying nominator and seconder and then send the completed form to the Secretary by 20/8/15.

Nominations received after that date will be invalid and therefore will not be considered. Members of the committee need to be Life Members or Senior Competitor Members or Full Time Student Competitor Members over 18 years old.

Recreational and Supporter Members are generally not able to be committee members unless there are no acceptable nominations far vacancies from Competing Members.

Juniors and Parents Meeting

This Sunday at 7am. To discuss the new season.

Shed Cleaning

The general approach by members is to leave a mess for others to attend.

As a consequence of this I have decided to work a monthly rotation roster for each squad to do some basic cleaning around the shed.

In particular the regular (weekly) cleaning of the pontoon and a monthly complete sweep out of the shed downstairs.

Squad coordinators are responsible to mobilise their group to get the task done.

Please do not leave it to me to have to chase you up.

JB sharp

Leichhardt is hosting the final JB sharp event this Sunday.

We are still looking for some volunteers to run the BBQ between 8am and 12md plus work as officials in tinnies or as pontoon marshal.

If you can assist even for part of the time, please email Belinda Brigham (

We also need people to row and help us win the shield. We are VERY close to Glebe and we need some more points.
