LRC Pop-Up Store
We will have an LRC shop at this week’s regatta, operating upstairs in our club house.
Come and have a look at examples of the new clothing range, buy some of the existing range at never-to-be-repeated prices and order things like tracksuits, blazers, branded sun shirts and lots more.
The shop will open from 9.00am
Boats for Nationals
Please be aware that there is a DO NOT USE sign on a few boats for the coming week as they have been setup for the individuals rowing in the Nationals next week.
We want them to have the best possible chance and also avoid any unplanned accidents. Thanks for you cooperation.
Boat Race Officials
Without BROs we would not have regattas. They are fundamental to our sport and all volunteers.
If you’re interested in learning more about rowing or if you’ve had a great rowing career and want to give back a little, then please consider becoming a BRO by contacting Justin.
Leichhardt is the biggest club in NSW and yet we currently have only three active BROs. We are punching below our weight and need to “man up”.
Tuesday and Thursday Night Club Rowing
We have about 10 positive replies to starting Club Rowing between 6.30 and 8 pm Tuesday and Thursday nights. Matt has volunteered to coach on Tuesdays and Steve Roll on Thursdays.
Let’s start the week after Nationals, so that’s Tuesday 22nd March at 6.30pm. Don’t forget to bring your torches.
Does anyone know what has happened to the complete feet fittings for the 3 seat of the Rod Moynahan?
It is a different make of boat and so we have no spares. The boat is unrowable!
Leichhardt Council Message
There is a home game for the Tigers on this Monday night and the Council also has an event on Leichhardt Oval No2.
There will be a manned barrier gate at the top of the hill to keep space for the officials etc for their event. They have told us that if any of our members wish to use the club just drive up to the guard and say you are using the Rowing Club. They will let you through.
