First item to talk about.
A number of you have not paid your fees. The rowing club will start to prevent you from on the water activities if these do not get paid. This can be done by etransfer to:
Identifying which membership you are joining, required forms, and any applicable
Please get this done ASAP. Your crew members need you.
Second item. We need to start focusing on ensuring that we are focused on our water training. Far too much time is being lost in getting our boats on the water in the morning as well as time lost to crew members not being available. Let’s be more precise in what we are doing.
Third item. To get the Novice Mens Eight going we are going to start rotating one of the five Senior men into the crew. We have 7 novice men and 5 senior men. This means we can put out an eight and quad out each and every day. Lets make this work.
Fourth item. The Senior Womens Quad and Novice Womens Quad will be practicing Saturday mornings as a Senior Womens Eight. This is being done to expand our training and racing opportunities.
Fifth item. It is yet to be fully confirmed but it looks like the SNRC Invitational Regatta will take place. This regatta will be held on Saturday and Sunday May 21st and 22nd which is the long Victoria Day weekend. The regatta has always been a big one for us and the goal is to get two races per day for everyone. Please ensure that you are able to be there and race. Your crew members need you.
Sixth item. The Hamilton City Championships will take place on Saturday, May 28th. Once again please ensure that you can be there.
Seventh item. CSSRA regatta is June 3rd to 5th. This is the biggest regatta of the high school season and everyone will race. However, we need committment to being there and also training with your crews. This regatta is important to us and it will be important to you for the rest of your high school racing career.
