RRC 2014-15 Awards

Thanks to everyone who came together on Saturday night to celebrate the achievements of RRC for the past season. From the comfort of our beautiful boathouse we remembered the great wins, the closes races, the fun nights, the early mornings and the special friendships we have built.

President’s Award – Vicki Brennan, for being an all round amazing help and super efficient treasurer. I can not thank her enough for her time, effort and support over the last couple of years. On top of all those jobs she takes on as treasurer she is also the person you can thank for the bar being stocked at our functions and more often than not she will even volunteer to serve you that drink.
The evening concluded with a slideshow of this seasons highlights, if you want to see it take a look here.
Now the season is concluded we want to look forward to the next one which will be here before you know it. This Saturday we will be hosting a planning day at the boathouse from 10am, it’s your opportunity to have your say and we welcome your opinions so please come along or contact [email protected] if you want more information.

Back in 2004

Back in 2004 the club embarked on a very successful 24 hour ergo challenge. To cut a long story short, we went on the media campaign frenzy to promote the event and managed to get a few mugs on various television promotions including this one…feast your eyes on the man in seven seat…
