RRC Quiz Night – Friday 15 March 2019 – Tickets available now!!!

The annual RRC Trivia Night is on Friday 15th March. This year we have a swinging 60’s theme. So its time to revamp your flares, dust off your go-go boots and re-arrange your flower necklace, cause the swinging Sixties are coming back to Richmond.
Our quizmaster from afar, Justin Thomas, will again be writing the questions to see who can take home the trophy this year.
Tickets are available through Trybooking at https://www.trybooking.com/466963
We are also looking for items to auction….these could be just about anything…wine, tools, accommodation (especially if you have a holiday house), tickets to concerts, shows or galleries, hampers, sporting goods, jewellery, paintings, ….. the list is endless.
The other thing that is always a winner is the donation of your time which could include things such as Coxing (everyone needs a coxwain), coaching, handyman, babysitting, gardening, painting or if you are a professional then perhaps you could offer you service of expertise for a period of time.
Please have a think and see what you can come up with. All donations will help raise money for the club and will be put towards upgrading our fleet and equipment.
If you have any items to donate or can help out with organising the night please contact Christine with questions or donations at fundraising@richmondrowing.com.au.

Quiz Fundraiser

I would like to invite you all to our Quiz – fundraiser night on March 14.  Fundraising is a critical part of club activities, this year we are looking to use the funds raised from this night towards new ergos and oars so it would be see a big attendance.
Some of the main fundraising activities are the live auction and silent auction. We count on the membership to offer prizes for sale to make these successful. Past offers include use of a holiday house for a week, on-water coaching sessions, gardening and cleaning services, wine, catering and homewares. If you have something we can sell (including your time and labour!), please contact Lindsey on Mslindseybrown@gmail.com.
Friends from outside of the club are more than welcome, you can arrange with Shern shern.timmins@hotmail.com to book for a whole team (ten people), part of a team or just bring yourself.  See you there!
Cheers
Justin

“Ides of March” – RRC Quiz Night

Book tickets now!

The next fundraising quiz will be the evening of 15th of March, as this is the “Ides of March” we will be having a Roman theme.

Participation in Fundraising is an expectation of membership. Without past fundraising we would have no equipment now, without fundraising now we will have no equipment in the future. It is that simple.

Not only is the event critical to the club it is far less strenuous than fundraising activities we have done in the past, in fact most people seem to have fun. There will be prizes for the winners and the best dressed Romans; the winners also get to keep for a year a very special marsupial, Wiki the wombat.

There is an entry fee of $20 and the bar will be open. Friends and family are more than welcome, in the past we have had groups forming their own quiz team (10 people) but if you are just bringing yourself we can find you a team.

Details of how to book will follow.
