End of financial year fundraising opportunity

Tax time is rapidly approaching and if you are looking for a good cause to obtain a tax deductible donation then please consider donating to the RRC ASF project for a new Concept 2 ERG bike.

We have been able to enhance the gym over the past couple of years with new ergos, PM5 monitors and a great weights set up. We felt it was time to also add a new stationary bike also to add some variety to training options and aid injury recovery.

The Concept 2 ERG bike use the same flywheel and PM5 monitor as the current Concept 2 rowing Ergos making it easy to use and monitor your workout.  The ERG bike is also great for recovery sessions and will be a welcome addition to the gym.

All donations over $2 through ASF are tax deductible, so if you make your donation before 30 June 2019 you will be able to include it on your 2019 tax return. You will be able to contribute to the club and reduce your tax liability at the same time.

Here is the link to make it happen…..

Fundraising – investing back in you

As we come to the end of our financial year we have been tallying up all our fundraising success of the year, I want to thank everyone who has contributed and let you know about our plans for investing it straight back into the club to hopefully benefit you all.

We’ve run a few great events and thanks to the success of the New Years Eve party and our big annual Trivia Night fundraiser we have generated $14,000 in fundraising this year. The decision has been made to invest that money in two areas:

  1. A brand new set of men’s sweep oars – so boys you can start Winter training for HoTY as we took delivery of them this week, but please wait for the captain to unwrap and set them up. There’s actually 10 oars in the set so a club pair can get training too 😉
  2. Refit of the gymnasium – lots of planning has gone into how we can best utilise the space we have in our gym beyond the ergos we currently have. Look out for some new equipment (which will start arriving tomorrow to enable more all round weight and fitness training to suit all strengths. We might need some helpers in getting everything set up and then we’ll try and get everyone trained to be able to safely use the new equipment – please do not use if you don’t know how to and always ask for help if needed. The hope is that while the weather is not so attractive for getting out on the water we can still work on our fitness and strength over Winter.

So maybe when you are at the club this Saturday celebrating the success’ of the season take a peak at some of the new additions that we will all be able to benefit from and maybe purchase an extra celebratory drink at the bar – because all our social/fundraising profit will go towards equipment for our members.
