The OCRC Exec met on Sunday 31 July. The following are key points for you to note from that meeting:
A reminder that the days for this have changed – winter training will now be on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the City Fitness Gym in Johnsonville from 3:30 to 5pm. Any additional squad-based training will be notified directly to squads by their coaches.
These are being done on Tuesday this week – all rowers please to wear their unitards, no socks or caps. All coaches please wear your black OCRC polo shirts. There will be individual and squad-based photos.
Tina and some of our experienced rowers are speaking to the Year 9 and 10 assemblies this week. Tina says please wear your OCRC Hoodies this week, and be available for anyone who may have some questions for you. Remember we need lots of new recruits!

We will send out formal notice of the AGM and call for nominations closer to the time – but please start giving some thought to whether you would like to serve on the Committee, or whether there are others you would like to nominate.
