Our heartfelt thanks to retiring committee members Annie Hindle (past president) and David Marston (Secretary) as well as Dion Blackmore (Student Rep) for their service to Onslow Rowing last season. They worked tirelessly to establish lots of the formal rules and structures for the club and have left us in a good position to move forward.
Fantastic to see our rowers out on the harbour in the Norton Cup yesterday. The local regattas are a good opportunity to come and support our rowers and it was nice to see many of you there.
COUNTDOWN TO THE QUIZ NIGHT
20 November – 1841 Bar, Johnsonville 6:30 pm
This will be a great night and a great way to bring our rowing community together.
By now most people have either sold their ticket allocation or have confirmed they are not participating. That means we have approx. 40 spare tickets to sell so if you want additional tickets contact Steve Watters– first come basis.
For those of you who have sold tickets please deposit the money into the rowing account now or collect on the night and deposit it with your rower’s name in the reference.
Raffle Donations: We are running two raffles on the night – squad managers are now asking for donated (non-perishable) goods for these – one or two items each should make a good basket so please respond to this. All those contributing will get a share of funds raised on the evening – so if you were unable to sell tickets this is a great way to be involved..
Great effort from everyone at the Rowathon! Remember to deposit your Rowathon money into the Rowing account. 50% goes to WRC fund raising and 50% to your own rower account. Thank you if you have done this already.
Uniforms (polo, hat, hoodie) will be issued to your squad manager for distribution. They should be arriving within the next week.
Make sure you join the rowing facebook group – it is for rowers and parents: Onslow College Rowing
Regatta messages and photos are often posted here.
Please find attached an updated version of the Season Guide recently issued. There is a correction to Tina's email address. Please use her school email address rather than the one provided in the first version.
As Annie mentioned last day sheet we have had great success with Grant applications this year. A brand new double is on order thanks to the $14000 grant secured from the Hutt Mana Trust and a further $3000 from NZCT which will be used to purchase new oars. Thanks to all of those involved in this.
Olwyn Crutchley – OCRC President
Stephanie Clark President of OCRC.
