Regattas and post regatta tidy-up in Wellington
Our next regatta is McLauchlin Shield this coming Saturday on Wellington Harbour. OCRC is required to help with boat loading and other tidy-up duties once the regatta is over, and we will make sure that the crews carry out this task fairly. Two crews will be rostered on for each Wellington regatta, and your coaches will advise you which crews those are closer to the time. Be aware that if your crew is rostered for post-regatta tidy-up you may be delayed for a time after the regatta has officially finished before you can go home.
For those of you making travel plans around the dates for Summer Camp, please note that rowers are required to be at camp by 10am on Tuesday 5 January; and will be ready to leave camp again by approximately 2pm on Sunday 10 January.
Steph Clark has been doing a fantastic job of developing a website for us and this will be ready to launch soon. We’d like to put photos of our rowers onto the site – so please let me know by the end of this week (20 November) if you do not want us to post photos of your rower/s on the OCRC website. The purpose of the site will be to keep our community up to date with regattas, training programmes, information from the Exec and the like; and also to promote OCRC to anyone who is considering joining us in the future.
Mattresses for bargain hunters!
Deidre has managed to sniff out a deal for us with the Warehouse. If we can get 10 or more orders together they will sell us a foam mattress and pillow normally valued at $75 each for just $60 each. These can be used for overnighting at the Ruamahanga or at Whanganui during the Whanganui regattas, and for sleeping at the Cambridge Raceway at Karapiro. If you’re interested, please contact Deidre directly.
WRC Christmas party!
The WRC Christmas Party is on the evening of the 27th of November, from 6.30pm, there is a cover charge of $20 for adults and $10 for U18’s. There will be free drinks (soft and harder stuff) until they run out. It’ll be bring a plate, with contributions co-ordinated between squads.
This has been a great event for the last three years - rowers are encouraged to bring their families and come and have a good time.
Stephanie Clark President of OCRC.
