For the Townsman

The Rockies Rowing Club, established in 2001, will be holding their 15th annual general meeting on Wednesday March 30 at 6 pm at the Anglican Church Hall, Phillips Room, on the corner of 1st Street and 13th Avenue South.

Reports, Election of Executive, Membership Fee changes, fundraising and the plans for 2016 will all be on the agenda.

We need your input because this meeting will set the future of the Club.

In 2016 the BC Summer Games will be held in Abbotsford and the Zone 1 (Kootenay) Rowing coaches will be at the Rockies Rowing Club AGM.

The age restriction for Rowing in the BC Summer Games is under 17 years of age as of December 31, 2016. Athletes must be born in 2000 or later.

The America’s Masters Games will be held in the Lower Mainland on False Creek this summer in August.  Masters rowers are 27-plus in age and the races are only 500 metres long.

If there are any Masters age rowers or those who would like to take Learn to Row and then train for this regatta come to the AGM on March 30 to sign up for the challenge.

Athletes from other sport disciplines, or those in the age category that would like to learn to row and are interested in rowing, are also invited come out to the AGM and meet the coaches.
