OCRC DAY SHEET – 4 November 2018
Kia Ora everyone
We are well into the rowing season now, it is always a busy time of the year when the season kicks off with new people, roles, responsibilities and logistics, but it’s shaping up to be a great season. In the words of the new Principal Sheena Millar when fare welling the Year 13’s recently, she said ‘step out of your comfort zone and try things you have never done before’ – so that is me with this President role, probably all of our new student coaches, others for taking on new roles in our rowing programme and those yet to come and do parent help on camps and regattas. So, thank you to everyone for stepping up to a new challenge!

Availability for camps and regattas
If you are not available for any of the season camps and regattas, then please let your coach and squad manager know.
See the list of camps and regattas on the website: https://ocrowingclub.weebly.com/regattas--camps.html
Rowit - https://www.rowit.co.nz/
This is a great site for parents to keep in touch with the live results while the students are away at regattas. View the Day Sheet for race events, times and results. Rowers can also check their race entries here.
New members and those not yet signed up, should ask to be added to the 'Onslow College Rowing' Facebook page. This is a good way of a keeping up with reminder notices for regatta trips and events, as well as photos and other things happening with the club.
Finally, good luck to all or our seniors sitting exams and our Yr 10s doing the maths exam.
Stephanie Clark President of OCRC.
