Marianne writes: No doubt you will have heard the latest news by now. Obviously it means still no rowing for us, well into January at least. More importantly, some of you will no doubt have Christmas plans in some disarray.
I know it’s not the same, but your rowing club family are still here, and Val has very kindly put two dates in the Zoom virtual Shed diary for get-togethers (see below). One on Boxing Day, another a Hogmanay Coorie In. Thanks, Val!
Please come and let’s join together to raise a glass (morning drinking on Boxing Day is definitely acceptable!), tell stories of our glory days and remember that good times on the water will come to us again. Until then, the QRC rowing family are all here for you and for each other.
Val adds: Great suggestion on the virtual shed yesterday morning (yes they’re still running!) from John for a couple of special wee sessions over the holiday period to come together with season’s greetings and usher in 2021.
Boxing Day, Saturday 26th December – running at the usual Saturday social time of 10am, but perhaps will linger on a little longer than normal probably until noon for anyone struggling to get their heads off the pillow!
New Years Eve, Thursday 31st December – 16:45 to 18:30, timed to hopefully avoid clashes with daylight pursuits or online festivities (or just going to bed!) later on – perfect start to the evening with a wee winter warmer and a few nibbles perhaps.
