What a Success!!

A huge thank you and congratulations to everyone involved in our revent trivia night! As a club, we raised a total of $5,818.00. Legends!

The night would not have been possible without your involvement but the club would like to say a specific thank you to some special people who helped keep the night running smoothly.

A special thank you to Rhiannon Sandow, Matt Bourke, Jane Milledge, our bakers: Maz Ramage, Margaret Bailey, Nicola Thompson and Jan McClelland; Niki Lopresti for the wonderful gelato; Doreen for the dip in bread. Also a thank you for the generous donations of Brian Ward (raffle first prize),  Richard Coleman and Guy Elron; the potato mashing and AMAZING raffle ticket sales by Catherine and Alicia Gleeson; and Heidi and James Parkes for managing the bar.  A big thanks also to all the people who helped wash up, set up and tidy up. 

Everyone’s contribution is appreciated and makes an event like this possible.

Last but certainly not least, we would like to say a HUGE thank you to Nancy Wahlquist for her incredible work planning and running the event. Her catering and organisation made for a fantastic evening and we all felt very looked after, Thank you Nancy for all of your hard work!

Boat Maintenance

From Daniela

Remember that September is boat maintenance month. Please rally your squads to conduct maintenance on the boats that have been allocated to you. Matt will be down from 8am on Saturday to assist squads with any maintenance if needed. We only have two more weekends to prepare our fleet for our first round of maintenance. So grab those old toothbrushes, buckets, sponges etc and give those boats some much needed TLC so they will serve us well.

On another note, good luck to all those crews racing at Lane Cove tomorrow.


From Nancy  

Lost anything?  Even if you haven’t, please help yourself to anything you find in lost property as it is being cleaned out on Monday.

There is a PLETHORA of drink bottles needing a new home, not to forget some nice warm jackets, shoes and towels.  The rest is going to the op shop.  So please take whatever you want.

RALFE CURRALL, loyal supporter of Leichhardt Rowing Club and esteemed member of the Leichhardt Union of Old Rowers, passed away 31st August 2019, after a long illness.
