150th Exhibition Opening, Sunday 15th September

Come and join us to help celebrate a big weekend in the history of the club.
150th Exhibition
After our Saturday night gala dinner we have a slightly more informal event at the boathouse (not too early for anyone who has had a “really big night”).
Normal training will be on at 10am for those keen and eager and the exhibition celebrating our 150 years of history will be open to all.
From midday the bar will also be open and the BBQ should be firing up to nourish members, friends and family.
So come along to experience what makes Richmond Rowing Club such a great place to be!

The Biggest Night in 150 Years of RRC and Exhibition of History

RRC 150 Years Celebration Gala Ball
The most significant event to celebrate 150 years of continuous rowing is the Gala Ball, being held on Saturday 14 September, 6pm at the Melbourne Town Hall.
No one who has a connection to Richmond Rowing Club should miss this dinner. It will be a night of meeting current and old members, telling stories and hearing presentations about the club, while enjoying fine dining and celebratory drink, with everyone wearing something much more attractive than training gear!
Everyone should book a ticket and not miss on being part of another historical event for the club.
Book your tickets here.

RRC 150 Years Exhibition
Despite 3 clubhouse fires, we have been very fortunate to be able to assemble an extensive amount of material to show our activities through the decades.
The exhibition will be open to anyone, and also shows the changes to the river and Melbourne’s skyline.
