GRC Santa (Dash) Row 2016

GRC entered Christmas with not just one, or even two but over 27 Santas. Even Clydesdale ARC managed to attract a load of Santas to the clyde to join in the fun sport. Some of them were even heard to be hollering that famous old santa phrase “Ho Ho Ho” :-). We hope they all enjoyed getting a bit of fitness training in before jetting off with Rudolph and the other reindeer to deliver all the presents to good boys and girls across the world.

 

And, as if evidence were needed, here’s the photos…

Santa Dash GRC Style

Hi Folks,

We’ve lost our minds and decided rowing a 5k in Santa suits seems like a good way to have fun :-). We need as many Santa’s as we can gather to row up to Belvedere and back down. A seat will cost £5 and you’ll get a Santa Suit to wear to give us some individual identity. All proceeds will be given to the Beatson Charity for Cancer Research and we’re likely to get a mention in some of Scotland’s finest press….

Come join our Santa Dash as only GRC can do.

Looking to get some boats on the water for 10am and there may be some mulled wine and mince pies for after.

To sign up, drop us a note on the Contact Us page.

See you all on Saturday, bright and early 🙂

Results!

Thanks to all crews who came along and competed over the 5000m Clyde Course.

With no stream and sunshine it was a successful day!

The results below have been revised since the event prize giving…in error Glasgow Uni were awarded the prize for WRes2 4+, this prize was actually won by Clydesdale ARC – Clough.

New Committee, New Year

AGM complete and new club year upon us.

Membership is now due and rates have been set, you can see them on the website here. Please arrange your payments with our new treasurer Ann Black (you can pay by cheque, cash, bank transfer, paypal or in installments by standing order) so we can build a list of members who have paid. If payment is not received by December, use of the club facilities (including access to your own boat if you have one) will be withheld until all fees due are paid. You have been warned…

The pages on the website detailing who is the committee have been updated as have membership fees so please take a look and get to know your new team. Give any of us a shout if you have any questions or suggestions for the club. Subsequent positions (boathouse manager, media, safety etc) will be decided at the first committee meeting and this will be updated then.

As we launch this year, we will be working towards building the club and teams, starting with our 4’s Head of the River race in November (Volunteers will be required) so please get involved where you can and support our wee club. (we may have social events before this so keep watching this space….)

Your elected committee…

GRC Summer Barbecue

GRC had it’s summer club row and barbecue. Sorry we didn’t let everyone know on the website but it has been experiencing technical difficulIMG-20160806-WA0002ties recently. Back up and running now though….

Club members shared boats to get 2 eights, a four and a quad on the water together and all had an enjoyable paddle. Once the hard work was over, we had burgers, sausages and kebabs while swilling beer, wine and juice. During all the frivolities we named our latest two additions to the fleet, Sausage Row (name decided by club membIMG-20160806-WA0000ers at the previous barbecue), a lightweight Sims racing single scull, and Bill Mac (named after a valued and dedicated member  who passed away recently – he has been sorely missed), a Stampfli racing single scull.

After which we said our goodbys to our most active coach and all round good guy, Don ‘the Don’ Milesh while running one of our spectacular raffles….

 

GRC Regatta 2016

Our thanks must go out to the Umpires, racing organisers, catering staff, sponsors, competitors and the army of volunteers who all were essential in the running of our GRC Summer Regatta 2016.

We will post video and photos in due course but thanks everyone for making this an enjoyable and effective event. We hope to see you all at our Head race in November and will be inviting you all to our social events in the coming months.
