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.

Junior Learn to Row session

We have had a very successful LTR session for some junior rowers from Glasgow. Starting with 5 we whittled it down to the top 3 (Lewis, Kier and Ryan) who learned to row, ending up in our fine shell doubles with their coaches to compete against each other and show the teachers a thing or two.

GRC Barbecue

We had a fantastic night and managed to view the fantastic fireworks display laid on by Glasgow City Council and a beautifully synchronized soundtrack laid on by Don and Kate Steven who we owe a huge thank you to. We managed to sell some lovely home-made burgers and a load of raffle tickets. In total we managed to raise a grand total of over £250 and we’d like to thank everyone involved.

We also had a wee vote to name our new single bought using Sandy’s takings in the tuckshop and the one that most members (not me it has to be said) voted for was Sausage Row. We’ll be having a wee naming ceremony in the not too distant future which I hope you will be able to join us for.

Hopefully we’ll be having some more social events in the near future and hope you can join us.
