This Week @ LRC – 20 July 2018

Working around the Club

Thanks to those that removed the 80 odd sliding racks, but in particular Christiaan Fitzsimons and Gene Phillips for spending 4 hours straight of the grinders at great peril to their own safety!

And thanks to all volunteers like Rex (in the picture) who have been making a great contribution to maintaining the building and equipment.


Bay Run 2018 – from the organiser

Our annual Bay Run fundraising event is fast approaching and this year will be held on Sunday the 5th of August. This year we’re expecting approx 2,000 runners to take part. The event starting point is located along the front of the reserve at the end of Maliyawul St, Lilyfield.

A road closure will be in place along Waterfront Drive (Callan Park) between 6am – 10am which might have a direct impact on your families. The closure is along the front of the water where the carpark is. Could you please notify everyone who may be affected by the closure to avoid confusion on the day.

Below are the proposed event timings (these may change slightly):

6:45am – Registration Opens
7:45am – Professional pre-race warm-up
8:00am – Start for all runners and walkers
8:05am – Start for the Primary OSHCare 2km Challenge

More information about the event can be found at If you have any queries, or would like further information, please don’t hesitate to contact Selina ( directly.

We hope it will be a great day and we’re hoping to raise valuable funds for Dobroyd Point Public School.


JB Sharp – 29 July 2018, Sunday

Thanks to all who have already volunteered for the last JB Sharp (Sunday 29 July).

If you can drive a tinny, or can do other small jobs on the day, please let Anna C know.



From Steven Duff

If you wish to bring a friend down for a row (who has experience rowing) we wish to support you. Members are welcome to do this as long as they get permission from the Captain. More than this “one off” experience requires the visitor to either join as a GUEST MEMBER paying a monthly fee for up to 6 months or to join the club.

No unauthorised people are allowed to use our facilities at all. This includes the gym.

If unsure just send me an email and ask.

If you disregard this club policy your jeopardise your own membership. I am quite strong on this issue so please do not try your luck.
