AGM

LRC_Flag_2019_RGB_Icon.png

Members of LRC are encouraged to attend the Club’s Annual General Meeting on 24 July, starting at 7:30 pm.  This is an opportunity to hear about the Club’s progress over the past 12 months, to review the Accounts, to ask (reasonable) questions of the Club’s officers, and to elect a new Committee.  Committee members – all volunteers – do an enormous amount of work for the Club, and the AGM is also an opportunity for members to show their support and appreciation for the work they do.

Please note that nominations for the Committee must be received by the Club by not later than 7:30 pm on Wednesday 17 July.  Nominations, together with the names of the nominee’s proposer and seconder, should if possible be sent to the Club by email to office@londonrc.org.uk.  If you require information about the AGM, the nomination process, or our governance structure, please email secretary@londonrc.org.uk.

The AGM is usually quite a convivial occasion, and an opportunity to meet up with friends at the Club.  This year we have much to celebrate, in particular the Club’s achievement in developing a new Gym and raising the funds necessary for this project.  We look forward to seeing you there.

Honorary Secretary, London Rowing Club

DebbieFlood_London_LRC.jpg

Join British Olympic rower Debbie Flood at London Rowing Club as she discusses her sporting career, what motivates her and her continuing support of young athletes, with SPCK author Andy Frost.

Your whole ticket price will go to Diffusion – the programme which helps prisoners improve their reading skills and reduce their chances of reoffending. If you can't attend the event, you can make a donation to the programme here: https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/booksforprisoners

Included in the cost of your ticket is: a drinks reception with canapes and a goody bag to take away worth £30.

Debbie Flood has had an extraordinary career representing Great Britain in the women's double and quadruple sculls. She won Bronze at the 1998 Junior World Championships in the Double Sculls and finished her career by competing at London 2012. Along the way, she won gold three times at the World Rowing Championships and picked up two silver medals at the Olympic games. In 2012, she was elected captain of the Leander Club in Henley on Thames; the first woman to hold this role in over 200 years!

Debbie is a fantastic role model for young men and women who want to pursue a career in elite sport. She now works with Christians in Sport, mentoring young elite athletes.

We are so excited that Debbie has agreed to speak at this event and cannot wait to hear about her experiences! Don't miss out - book your tickets here today on Eventbrite:

‘Richard Philips’ Boat Naming Ceremony

Members are invited to join a celebration of London's longest serving volunteer coaches of the modern era, Richard Philips. We will name an eight for Richard who has been a member of the Club since 1973. 

Richard's first win was as a novice in a coxed 4 at Staines Regatta in 1976. In 1984, he went on to win the National Championships with his double partner David Babbs. The following year, he reached the quarter finals of the Diamonds but then lost to US Olympic double champion, Brad Lewis, who was then beaten by Sir Stephen Redgrave. 
 
Captaincy was next for Richard, serving for three seasons, 1988, ‘89 and ‘90. Since then, Richard has coached thousands of sessions, watching rowers move through life. There is much more to say and more to come from Richard; please come on Wednesday, 01 May to hear it all.
 
The naming ceremony commences at 7:00pm. Dinner from 7:30pm, please book in to kathleen.curran@londonrc.org.uk, £25 per person, the sooner the better, but no later than Thursday 25 April. Places will fill quickly.
