Super Saturday – don’t miss out!

The outline plan is to load the boat onto the trailer after social rowing, then head up to Tesco for 1.00pm until 3.00pm. I would be grateful if some members could be at the car park to help unload the boat and during the course of the couple of hours, pop along and give support. I know it may be difficult as I know many of our Youth Members are active in other sports (and there is a big rugby game on), but if you or parents can come along and talk to anyone interested.

At 3.00pm it would be good to have a couple of people to load the boat again and unload at Port Edgar ready for youth rowing on Sunday morning.

Meanwhile, Club captain Marianne has issued a special invitation for Saturday morning:

The weather looks good for social rowing and bacon rolls. Rising tide too. Yay!

However, we have something else for you too. One of our stalwarts recently celebrated his 80th birthday, so I’d like to invite you to help us celebrate with John – and eat a very special cake (after one of Peter’s Bacon rolls of course) – on Saturday 13 Nov from 09:00.

Most of you will know John of course, but for newer members, this is a good chance to come down, have a row, a chat and meet the legend himself!
