As many rowers have indicated they will be driving up to Nagambie on Friday the thirteenth (queue spooky music) Boat loading has been moved to Thursday the 12th and later to 7.30 pm to accommodate one last training row.
To make this a fast load after training could those arriving at 6 pm help push the trailer down to the club so we can start loading as soon as possible.
The Nagambie weather forecast looks a pleasant 19-21 degrees Sat and Sun.
The first floor form work has been completed and REO for the slab has been delivered this morning (see left)

What’s Box biting you say?
Well the only way you will find out is to attend the RICHMOND ROWING CLUB PRESEASON CAMP on the 4th 5th and 6th of October at Lake Nagambie.
Lake Nagambie is just 90 mins drive from Melbourne via the Hume Highway, located on the Goulbourn river and nestled amongst some of Victoria’s premier wine country although we may actually do some rowing too it is camp after all.

To paraphrase the Bard... “come join your fellow Tigers for a night of good food, good wine and good company”.
Richmond Rowing Club will be hitting the road this weekend to attend the Wendouree Ballarat Regatta. If you are in the area on Sunday 10th of Feb head down to the lake and cheer on the RRC tigers.
This will be the first time competing on the former 1956 Olympics Rowing Venue for many tigers so most importantly remember to CHECK THE BOAT after you cross the line as the bank comes up fast. Also check the weather forecast and pack for all 4 season anyway.
For those attending Peter Schouten will be our designated tow vehicle driver and boat loading will be 6pm Friday evening. Derek and Dennis have the loading plan.
Good luck this weekend.
