This photo is the first ‘slide’ in a new RWSABC Slide Show.

During some events at the Boat Club it was decided that it would be good to have a slide show showing on the big screen.  A slide show has now been produced and made into a video available via You Tube.

The Slide Show may also be useful to share with people who want to know more about the Boat Club.

The Slide Show shows pictures from various events held at RWSABC. It provides those unfamiliar with the club with photographs of our sporting and social activities. The Slide Show runs for around 15 minutes and there is no sound with it.

If you think that there should be additional slides added and have photographs that you would want to see in future versions of the slide show please email them to Joe Heffernan email: openwaterswimming@rwsabc.com

The intention is to update this slide show around every 6 months to keep it fresh.

To find the video search for “RWSABC Slide Show” on You Tube.

Carrying on from the success of the first Curry and Quiz Night on 7 December Vicky and Rob are organising another one to take place on Saturday 15 February at 7pm.  There will be a great selection of curries from Priya’s Palace and a fun quiz with a hint of Valentine’s trivia.  Tickets cost £15 per person and can be purchased at the Bar.

 

On Robert Burns’ Birthday (25 January) the ‘Bard at the Boat Club’ event took place to celebrate the legacy of Scotland’s Bard.

Around 60 participants set down to a traditional Burn’s Supper buffet followed by entertainment.  This was a Burn’s Supper with a modern twist.  Hugh and Clair Kerr started the celebration of Burns with an superb rendition of Tam O’shanter (including horse!).  Music and song was provided by Al Black, Gordon McKenzie and a duet consisting of Rose Sloan and Tom Kater. The spoken word was provided by Lesley McLaren who read a Liz Lochhead poem and Stephen Watt, a modern day beat poet from Dumbarton.  Stephen recited 3 of his own poems.  The assembly ended a rousing rendition of Auld Lang Syne.

A raffle was held and those attending were exceptionally generous in donating prizes and purchasing tickets.

After the Bard at the Boat Club those present settled down to watch SUNSHINE ON LEITH and many sang along to The Proclaimers songs that run through this film.

Thank you to all who attended this event.  Congratulations and gratitude to those who organising this event and provided help .

Profits from this event will be used to support the RWSABC Development Fund.

We’re delighted to say that we’ve received funding for a supply of free period products for our members, participants and visitors. They’ll be in Ladies Changing rooms and Toilets, if you ever get caught short and need to use them.

The Inverclyde Bothy (at Gourock Station) in conjunction with Paths For All are starting up a Wednesday evening Health Walk starting at 7:00pm every Wednesday evening from RWSABC. This Health Walk is open to all and it is free. The walk shouldn’t last for more than 60 minutes and afterwards you are invited for a cuppa in the Club. The trained walk leaders taking the walk will be Joe Heffernan and Lee Trotter (both Boat Club members). During the dark winter nights the walk will be up and back down The Esplanade. We evenings become more light different routes will be explored. We should have a walk every week irrespective of weather unless there are icy conditions when the walk is likely to be cancelled. The poster shown here provides more information.
