The LRC Boathouse in 1887

Come and celebrate: AGM, boat and trailer christening and BBQ on this Sunday

Don’t forget to come down to the Club, or stay on after a row, this Sunday morning 30th August.

At 10.30am we’ll be having our AGM where we will review the year that was and also look ahead to next year.

The new committee will be voted in and then straight afterwards we’ll christen two new boats and our new trailer.

The trailer will be commissioned by Jamie Parker, Balmain’s local member who has been very helpful to the club and is a strong supporter.
