With effect from midnight on 31st March (i.e. from 1st April) the assets and operations of Marlow Rowing Club (the unincorporated association founded in 1871) will be taken over by Marlow Rowing Club (a registered charity number 1148327 and company limited by guarantee).
At the EGM and Meeting last night, members overwhelmingly supported the Watersports Hub plans and approved the transfer of the club assets to the charity on 31st March. Further announcements will be made later this week.
Today (Sat 9th March) in the Women's Eights Head of the River two Marlow crews came in the top 40: with 303 crews racing for position WEHoRR is the biggest women's race of the year. MRC B came 31st in 19.43, and MRC A came 36th in 19.46. Well done.
Good results at the Schools Head today - JW 16 8+ and J 4x win, and mixed quad 3rd even after a crash with Westminster. In the Scullery Head at Dorney WJ18 4x‐ were 4th, J18 4x‐ were 1st and WJ15 8x+ were 4th.
We have an important club EGM and meeting next Tuesday (12th March). In my last email and letter I probably wasn't clear enough about what we will cover. There will be presentations about the planned new Rowing Club clubhouse and Watersports Hub, the Sport England grant and a vote on whether to proceed with this plan. This is therefore a critical meeting and I urge you all to attend.
