ANZAC Day Row

from Trevor Sills

Hello All Members

In commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the end of WW1, and in conjunction with Pymble Ladies’ College, LRC has organised an ANZAC Day row and Dawn Service of Remembrance on Blackwattle Bay in sight of the Anzac Bridge.
We need people to help with the event as well as people to row in it.

If you would like to be part of the Anzac Day row on 25 April, please add your name to the list on the club noticeboard by 1 April.

Clubs from across Sydney have been invited to participate, rowing in their Club Eights.

On Saturday 25 April, crews will assemble at LRC and row to Blackwattle Bay Glebe, leaving LRC from about 3.50am, arriving around 5am. Crews will raft up on a rope drawn between two tugs provided by the Sydney Heritage Fleet.

The Dawn Service will be conducted from an official boat commencing at 5.20am and will conclude about 5.50am. The main body of crews will then row back to Leichhardt.

After the row, we will be holding a breakfast at our Clubhouse.

To run this Anzac Day event, we need to know who would like to row and/or who would be prepared to assist the evening before/or at the event. We need tinny drivers and assistants, BBQ/breakfast staff and a pontoon marshall.

Batteries – $2 for 3

Please DO pay for the batteries. Only a few coins have been dropped in the bucket and more than 30 batteries have been taken!
$2 for 3 batteries (not $1 as published last week – apologies).

Nancy is watching!

Colleges rowing out of LRC

We have a few crews from Uni colleges rowing with us. Great to see some youth getting back in the boats – please help out if in need and be kind to our guests.
