KR1 XMAS REGATTA
The first Karapiro regatta is coming up:
Departing Wed 13th Dec. 7am in Onslow quad, in travel uniform.
Returning Sun 17th Dec.
Thank you for paying the regatta fee and completing the consent forms – a quick turn around on these things is really appreciated. Remember to be at school 7am on Wed 13th Dec in your travel uniform (black trousers / shorts, OCRC polo and OCRC hoodie) ready to load the bus for a prompt departure.
To note, the regatta coordinator is now Stephanie Clark not Frances Martin.
The information sheet for Summer camp has now been issued and fees for this are due by 30th December ($355). Keith has also sent the consent form out on Survey Monkey and we really need these in within the next few days so we can complete the process ahead of school closing.
I will be asking for assistance from the Girls and Experienced Boys parent cohort for some pre-camp food preparation in the next week.
In addition to that, if you are handy in the kitchen and would like to assist with some of the meal bases (butter chicken, bolognaise etc) please give me a call as preparing these in advance cuts back the work at camp for parent helpers. We have a standard set of recipes and the costs of these ingredients are covered.
Thank you to Maggie and family
A big 'Thank you' to Maggie and her family for being part of Onslow Rowing and the Girls crew since her Novice season 3 years ago. Maggie's contribution in the Senior girl’s crew and to Onslow rowing has been invaluable and will be hugely missed as will Frances and Mike’s parent help contributions which have been very much appreciated. (Unfortunately, Maggie has an injury which doesn't permit her to continue rowing for this final season).
Fundraising priorities and grants
The Committee agreed that the following things were our priorities for fundraising/grants this year – and potentially into next:
Unfortunately, our application to Pelorus Trust for replacing the school ergs was not successful. With Maggie moving on from rowing we are looking for someone else to assist with grant applications as there are potentially other avenues for funding which we have not yet tried. If you are interested in assisting give myself or Stephanie Clark a call.
Support for squad managers
Our squad managers are a primary channel for club communications and sometimes this means a lot of email when there is an event (which is just about every weekend in the season). Please support them by meeting the deadlines for responses, as this will assist to keep the number of communications and reminders to a minimum.
Stephanie Clark President of OCRC.
