Captain’s Log

Orientation for new(ish) members

If you have joined the Club in 2014 you are expected to attend one of the scheduled Orientation Days.
They are this Sunday from 8.30am to 10.30am or on Saturday 15th November from 8.30am to 10.30am.
Please tick your selection on the list on the notice board upstairs.
Older members welcome. We will be covering everything from “Who’s Who” to how to change a wheel.

URGENT – Head Of The Yarra – get your entries to the Captain by Monday 3rd November

The closing date for entries for the HOTY is 7pm Sunday 9th November. We want to have our entries in well before that.

If you have a crew you wish to propose it must be sent to me with names by this Monday (3/11).

Please add the division they wish to enter and their lead up training program. Boats are limited so get in fast!

Once a crew has been accepted each rower must go to our online shop to pay the race, transport and BBQ fee of $120.

This fee must be pre-paid in order for the crew entry to be made by our regatta secretary.

Iron Cove Classic BBQ and Cake stall on Saturday

The more cakes and goodies we can sell, the better will be the fund raising outcome for the club. So, start baking!
Remember no nuts and include a list of the ingredients.

Please deliver your cakes to the Club early on Saturday or leave them in the kitchen marked ‘Cake Stall’.

Remember to bring money with you on Saturday to partake of the BBQ (it’s always good!!) and to buy something to take home.

Watch the race from the balcony – it’s not that often you can see that many eights at the one time on Iron Cove (or anywhere)!
