Corporate Challenge 2019

We are getting very close to the LRC Corporate Challenge. At this stage things are building quite nicely but we need two things from members:
  1. Talk some folks from your office into putting a crew together and entering;
  2. Volunteer to be a coach, or a cox, or tiny driver, or fill in rower where needed.
For volunteering, to enter crews or if you have questions, contact Justin ( The brochure and details are on the website.  

Defibrillator Training – 11th July @ 6.30pm

Do you know what to do in an event where someone has collapsed and needs CPR using a Defibrillator? Whilst we never want to be in this situation, it would be good to be prepared for the ‘just in case’. So come along to a training session to be held at the club. The session will go for approximately 1 hour and will cover the following:
  • What is cardiac arrest, what is CPR and how CPR and a defibrillator help can save a life;
  • How to recognise the warning signs of a cardiac arrest;
  • Stay calm and dial 000;
  • How to assess the area for safety, assess the patient and determine if you should use an AED;
  • How to buy time for the victim by performing CPR until the AED arrives;
  • How the AED Product works; • How to attach AED pads correctly and how to use the defibrillator effectively and safely;
  • How to follow safety protocols to protect the user and bystanders;
  • How to deal with unusual situations (such as a victim lying in water);
  • How to perform CPR in conjunction with the defibrillator; and
  • Defibrillator general care and maintenance.
It costs nothing to attend but could save a life in the future. See Daniela for more info. If you would like to attend please put your name on list.  

Trivia Night on Saturday 7 September

Yes folks, Trivia Night is back! Put it in the diary and start assembling your winning team – we recommend booking a table of 8-10 knowledgeable buddies so you can smash it! Our cracking team has already started putting together a wide-ranging list of questions to keep you on your toes and there will be fun and games for all. There will also be a call-out for volunteers closer to the date, so ink it in!
