After extensive interviewing and package negotiation, Richard Medway has been appointed LRC Gas Man.
The position lasts until he can find a suitable replacement.
Thanks Richard.

New Equipment arriving Friday

24 new sculling blades arrive Friday. Chevrons needed. All will be labelled this week.
They are for the Frank & Kerry Thorn and Duff quad and the Hutchison and LRC Masters doubles.
New Sykes 8 for Men arrives this week. Black restricted use only.

Pymble coxes available

Pymble have girls available to cox at the Head Of Parramatta and Head Of The Yarra.
Let me know if needed. They are available Saturday and Thursday mornings as well.

Reducing congestion on the pontoon

We have a very busy pontoon at 5.15am and 6.50am during the week.
Make sure you prepare before putting your boat out on racks.
Try to be away within 5 minutes.
Avoid returning to the pontoon at 6.50am on Mon, Wed or Fri mornings as this is when all the Pymble girls are returning.
A delay of 5 minutes can make all the difference, especially if you are just going upstairs to have a leisurely breakfast anyway.
