President’s Communications - 9th May 2017

I thought I would pen a few words on the general progress in the Club after yesterday’s Committee Meeting. A lot of exciting things  are happening at present  within the Club. Our new Coxless Four has arrived and is in use. At last night’s Meeting TWO more fours ,both coxed, one for the use of the Ladies was  ordered.  ( Delivery time, I am told is 6/8 weeks.) Extra blades and 4 sets of sculling blades and quad riggers  ,are also on order. On the Social side our Bar takings ,as you will see when the Accounts are released, have  increased  by a double digit amount. What pub can boast that in the last year?   The washing up machine is on it’s    last legs  ( due to overuse ) and a new one is now to be ordered as is a new safe is also on the cards. A Work Party is been set up to  stain the tables and chairs on the balcony so as to attract  even more people over the Summer months. This will be held on Saturday 20th May starting at 10.30a.m.  ( after rowing )This will save the Club in the region of £800/£1,000.                    All this is due to a small group of people  who have worked tirelessly for the Club plus a dedicated Bar Staff. If YOU want to help or know more about the Club, do not listen to gossip, simply ask one of the hard working Committee. A hell of a lot has been achieved in the last 12 months ,but there is much more to do . Ideas and suggestions to the Committee. Moans to ME.
