Kia Ora Everyone
And we’re off, welcome to the new season!
The LTR programme is in full swing and all the new Novices seem to be thoroughly enjoying it. We have a large cohort of boys but only a handful of girls. So, if you know any Yr 9 or 10 girls who want to try rowing, it's not too late. Encourage them to come to one of the LTR sessions.
Thanks to all of the rowers who are helping out with this, your experience and role modelling is very beneficial and appreciated. And thanks also to the coaches who are running the operation - like a well oiled machine!
All rowers need to urgently register with WRC. If you are participating in training at the club or helping out with LTR, then you need to be registered. This is a WRC health and safety requirement.
All rowers heading into the new season are now required to pay the WRC spring training subs. Pay into the OCRC account with your name as reference. The payment of $250 is passed onto WRC and $10 to OCRC.
This has been postponed and will likely be rescheduled to 16 September. Your coaches will confirm nearer the time and we’ll post details on the facebook page.
LTR Camp dates:
Further camp information will be issued within the next 2 weeks including the cost. But expect it to be approximately $250.
New uniform orders will be taken in October including polos, hoodies, caps and rowsuits (for those who gave theirs away at Maadi you will need one for KR1, so start sweet talking your parents or saving your pennies!)
As you’re aware the date for our annual book fair had to be changed to accommodate the Wharewaka AGM. The new date is the weekend of the Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th of October.
This is our major fundraiser for the year and supports reimbursing our great coaching staff with some of their expenses.
Here’s the list of tasks to do to make sure we get a good number of books to sell:
