Busy 6 weeks ahead at the Club

As well as all the regular watersports nights, there are a number of events of note that may be of interest to some or all in the coming weeks.

Sat 19th May – Private function in the clubhouse
Sat 19th May – Members volunteering at Wheels-to-Water event at Castle Semple Loch. See Willie Bell for more info
Sat 19th May – Cove Sailing Club are hosting an open day and have asked if any kayakers or rowers were in the area they could pop in to extol the virtues of these sporting disciplines to their members. They are trying to diversify.

Fri 25th May – May Boat Club Session
Sat 26th May – Private function in the clubhouse
This Private Function is the wedding of one of our members, Mr. Allan Downie. who is marrying Miss Lee Trotter.

They are arriving by yacht at approx. 3pm and being married on the beach at approx. 4pm, using the hall for the reception.
If anyone would like to help enhance their arrival at the Club by launching boats and accompanying them ashore in a small flotilla, that would be most welcome.

The Committee would politely request that members bear this event in mind when planning their use of the Club on that date. Allan will have a lot of guests in attendance, and although we will have additional bar staff working most of the day, the bar may be quite busy. The snooker room will also be in use for the function from early in the day.

Frid 1st June – Clydeview Academy School Show fundraising party
Sat 2nd June – Greenock Hockey Club prize giving and summer party
Sat 2nd June – Club attending Troon Regatta

Sat 16th June – Club attending Arran regatta in Lamlash

Frid 29th June – June Boat Club Session
Sat 30th June – 50th Anniversary Event, marking the first Long Row using Zebra in 1968.
The crew who rowed from the Club round Mull and back that summer, are being joined by participants in subsequent Long Rows to take a trip to Kilcreggan before gathering back in the Club for dinner and finally a second showing of Hugh Kerr’s memorable presentation on the history of Long Rows from the Club. The Committee would respectfully request that members do not make any plans to use Zebra, Whiteforland, No. 10 or No. 11 Pairs on this date, as all are required for use by the past Long Rowers. Although the trip to Kilcreggan and dinner are by invitation only, there may be space within the hall later for the general membership to attend Hugh’s presentation.
