Dates for the 2019 / 2020 season

Brunch and Learn, Saturday 12 October, from 11:30

This event is part of our effort to raise awareness about mental health issues. Before we eat our body weight in pastries and eggs, there will be a 15 minute session about mental health and stigma. It would be great if you're able to bring along contributions (either brunch food or some coinage). All money that is raised will be split between the club and Mind for the wonderful things they do for those in need. Please RSVP by 1st October at the link above (club's closed Facebook group). 

Furnivall Pub Quiz, Saturday 19 October, from 5pm

As part of Mental Health Awareness Month, we will be hosting a pub quiz. Donations received will go towards both the club and the mental health charity, Mind. We'll also be inviting AK and Sons so it will be a great opportunity to meet the neighbours too! Please RSVP at the link above (club's closed Facebook group).

Christmas Cheese & Wine Party, Saturday 14 December

Our much-loved Christmas party featuring fun racing in eights followed by the eating of copious amounts of cheese. All members welcome, present and past, plus friends and family. More details to follow!

Learn To Row BBQ, Sunday 30 June

Please speak to the club captain or squad captains for more specific details.

Fancy some riverside regatta cheering? Love to people watch? Like drinking prosecco out of plastic cups? Let's gather forces and claim a stake on the Henley riverside for all the above.
