Oxford University claim the biggest win since 1973 to beat Cambridge University in the 160th Boat Race after problems hit the Light Blues early in the event.
Curlew and Globe Rowing Club held a joint social to watch the boat race. With members from both sides helping with the catering…(there was so much cake)…A MASSIVE THANKS for those who baked (especially Bridget, Debbie, Craig, Grace, Katherine and many more. I do not think I have ever seen the newly redecorated Clubhouse so busy, the bar was jumping and the drinks flowing.
Both clubs entered into the spirit of the event, and it was decided that we should hold our own boat race or club races in the summer.
This was the second social that the Trafalgar Committee has held this year. All proceeds from the food will be spent on new gym equipment and currently we have raised nearly £500 for the gym so far this year.
A great big thank you for all Members old and new who came down and supported the clubs. It was great to see many old faces (and new…Baby Gillbe was there) in the clubhouse.
The end of summer saw a lot of activity, with the TRC gym being given a much needed face lift, as well the purchase of two new spin bikes to replace the old and broken ones. This is part of the TRC Management Committee commitment to renew and improve the gym equipment. What is next on the list?
A big thank you for all Curlew and Globe members who gave up their Sunday morning to repaint the gym! Please can we keep it nice and tidy from now on…
