Attention all members of Beccles RC.
The 2015 Annual General Meeting will be held at Beccles Town Hall starting at 19:30 on Friday 13th November.
The AGM is expected to last an hour to be followed by and bite to eat and drinks.
Please forward any agenda items to the Hon. Secretary (me) before the 6th November.
Please note that our AGM is due to take place on Friday 14th November at 7:00 p.m.
The proposed agenda is to be found here. Please do make every effort to attend to discuss plans for the club, elect a new committee and join us for a social get together after.
As we are now well into the new club year (as of 1st October), it will be helpful if everyone could complete new membership forms to ensure our records are accurate and up to date.
See you there.
Please be advised that we have just opened a two-week ‘window’ for a bulk order of club kit. See the club kit ordering page for further details.
Please follow this post to keep track of the plans for the sponsored row from Beccles to Oulton Broad on the afternoon of Saturday 28th June.
Good news. Our charity site on Virgin Money Giving has finally been launched. Follow this link to either start fundraising for the club or to make a donation:
Thanks and good luck with the fundraising.
All, please could you lend a hand this Saturday at the club from 10:00.
There are a number of maintenance jobs needing undertaking both around this site and on the boathouse itself. Many hands make light work so please do come and lend a hand.
As the clocks have changed and the evenings are brighter we have decided to start supporting club outings on Thursday evenings from 18:00.
This is open to all club members and adults are free to arrive earlier but could all juniors be aware that they should not boat prior to 18:00 unless their coach for the evening gives them explicit permission.
Do check the coaching rota to ensure that juniors will have qualified adult support.
There will be no junior rowing this Sunday, 20th April.
Hope to see you all again on the 27th at 10:00 as usual.
May I draw your attention to the list of racing events that we hope to try and attend this year in the column to the right of this post. There are a lot of races over the year and we cannot hope to attend them all but at the very least, we would hope that the club could be represented in some way at these events.
The next race will be the Alton RC Spring Head of the River on Saturday 22nd March. Robin has kindly offered to tow the trailer down to Alton Water near Holbrook, Ipswich. Could anyone wishing to race please make themselves known to me by Friday 14th March at the latest.
I should remind all potential competitors that to be able to race at British Rowing affiliated events, you will need to be a racing member of BR. Please ensure your membership is up to date and that you have selected Beccles as your affiliated club.
Alton will be the last long-distance (Head of the river) race before the Spring when we shall change the focus to the fast and furious mode of regatta racing before the Head season begins again in October.
Happy racing and good luck.
We have visitors from British Rowing joining us at the club Sunday morning from 11:30 so to ensure we have time to complete a junior outing, could everyone be down and ready a little earlier at 09:30 please.
Weather watch: winds are forecast to drop over night and I expect us to safely manage a junior out to the swing-bridge.
