The OCRC Executive Committee met on Monday 8 Feb. Key points of note from that meeting are covered below. Our next meeting is on Tuesday 1 March. If you have anything you would like the Committee to discuss then please let me know and I’ll put it on the agenda.
Initial Maadi Selection
Congratulations to all our rowers who have made the preliminary selections for attendance at Maadi 2016.
Please be aware that these are initial selections only. If your rower is still eager to compete at Maadi then their form will continue to be assessed throughout the remainder of the season, up to and including North Island Secondary Schools Championships (NISSRC) at Karapiro in late March. Final selections will be confirmed once NISSRC has concluded.
In order to qualify for attendance at Maadi, your rower must either compete in an A Final, or be leading the B Final at NISSRC. We are looking for crews who can compete in an A Final or finish in the top half of a B Final at Maadi itself.
Our uniform co-ordinators are asking for feedback on the new Onslow Unitards that were purchased this season. If you have any comments to make about these please can you email Steph Clark directly:

Do you want to sponsor OCRC?
Our huge thanks to UPS Power Solutions, who have sponsored the OCRC trailer for a number of years now. It’s been a fantastic contribution to the club, as well as a great way of getting the UPS brand out there up and down the country! If your business would like to look into sponsorship opportunities in association with the club then please let me know. We’d love to hear from you!
