Cygnet Weekly Update 25th October 2016
25th October 2016
Some good hard work done at the weekend with long rows to the Pink House and double outings. And it was the final two outings of the learn to row course who are all now invited to join the club and become the new novice squad starting their rowing careers and aiming for Head of the River Race on the 25th March next year. Many thanks to Alan Cox for coaching the course imparting his great rowing wisdom and displaying his inexhaustible enthusiasm and patience in equal measure. It will be great to have a new intake of Cygnets, please make them all very welcome.
This Saturday is stripey blazer time again at the Leander Lunch in Henley, which means a lot of people will be heading off early after the first outing. For the same reason the Novice outing for the LTR graduates will be 10am on Sunday NOT Saturday. There will be a time trial on Sunday so tough decisions to be made about how many pints to have at the Flowerpot on Saturday afternoon....
So this week...
Tuesday 7:15 Maxi Circuit at Cavendish School No charge only a towel and bottle of water required to gain admission
Wednesday 7pm at the club 10k club run
Thursday 7pm Squad ergo 6 x 500m
Saturday Squad outings, meet at 7:35 2k Erg test !!!!! followed by squad outings
Sunday meet at 7:45 Inaugural time trial, details of crews to follow, get your availability up to date on the spreadsheet so you are included in the plan.
