Stornoway Rowing Club will be holding it’s first AGM on Wednesday 7th March, 7:30pm at the Stornoway Coastguard Station.

All are welcome and I hope we can encourage some new members who will be keen to participate in some of the events we have been invited to this summer. These include:

The Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant – along with 1000 boats of all shapes and sizes on the River Thames, London, with free camping for the crew in the very centrally located Barns Elm, near the Wetlands Centre, for the whole weekend. The Scottish Traditional Boat Festival at Portsoy and the Dalriada Games in County Antrim…and many others, and all are options that can be considered by any of our members.

Closer to home we have the rowing challenge at the Sail Stornoway Maritime Festival (previously Sail Hebrides) which this year looks to be quite an event with another St Ayles skiff likely to be built in Stornoway in time to hold the races against.

During the AGM we will need to take a few moments to vote for our Chairman, Treasurer, Secretary, Fundraiser and four committee members so please send in your nominations.

I would also like to propose a large reduction in our membership fee as I feel that it is currently too high.

If anyone has any suggestions for any other matters to be discussed at the AGM please send them in.
