Leichhardt Rowing Club

This Week @ LRC – 2 June 2017

The x-training table you have all been waiting for

Bumper Crop

It looks like this year we are going to have a great turnout for the LRC Corporate Challenge.

At present we have 12 crews registered and it may swell to 14. That means new boats and repairs to the blue pontoon next year πŸ™‚

BUT we still need more coaches. So far we have eight volunteers and therefore need at least another four. Ideally you will have a tinny licence or have a buddy who can drive for you while you coach.

Not all of the sessions will be early morning. Some may be in the afternoons or on the weekends when the sun’s up. We also need coxes and volunteer subs.

So Recreational Rowers – think about getting a few more miles up before the season starts by helping out in a corporate crew. If you want to volunteer, please contact justin@cicomilne.com.

Labelling seats and oars

This weekend, Dean and Anna will start labelling seats and oars across the shed. Please come and lend a hand if you can. It’s going to be painless. πŸ˜‰

Women’s Crews

Thanks to those who sent in their preferences about crews and upcoming season’s plans. As a reminder, the Women’s meeting will be on 11 June, Sunday, at 9.30am. Every female member will need to have a plan of sorts for the season, to be able to book boats and enter regattas, so either send in yours beforehand (to annacico@gmail.com) or see you at the meeting.

JB Sharp – Glebe

First regatta of the JB Sharp series is on this Sunday 4th June, at Glebe. Event invite also on the Facebook page. This Winter series is great for all rowers who want to build a bit of race experience. Excellent for all those who want to try racing for the first time. No fees involved, and no entries required either. Just show up, take a boat and line up at the start. How easy is that!?
