“Cool Heads” – 27th Oct 2013

Changes to Saturday Morning Rowing

Competitive Rowing/Coaching (08:30) – In order to continue the development of the club in competition, this will now be organised by Ron Paterson and be by invitation for settled/planned crews with a view to racing in future events. These crews will have priority over boats and equipment.

Saturday Club Rowing (08:30) – due to the popularity of the Saturday morning rowing session, an additional club rowing session will be now be held, but be separate from the Competitive Rowing activities. This will also be held at 08:30 but will require those wishing to attend to email Mike at comms@uptonrc.org.uk by Thursday evening each (as before).

If members have any feedback on this change then please email comms@uptonrc.org.uk.
