The official opening of the new RRC Boathouse.
Also please consider contributing a gift for our boathouse warming using our online registry (password: 1863).
As you will have all hopefully seen the boathouse redevelopment is moving at pace now (even despite the weather this week). There is still lots to do and a big thank you to everyone who has helped get us this far.
We still need more funds to purchase the racking for this new area and it is not too late for you to donate using this ASF form to make a tax deductible donation. Click through now, complete the form and email or send it to Anthea, our Secretary, email@example.com. Every bit you can donate will help us towards our target $20,000.
