End of Season Party Tomorrow - Last Minute Tickets

The End of Season Party is tomorrow (Saturday 19 June) starting at 6pm. You can still get tickets.

Key Points:

  1. Please try to stay out of the shed from 8am - to give the volunteers setting up the event the time and space to make it happen.
  2. No washing of boats in the shed from 8am - so we have somewhere dry to enjoy the night.
  3. Have a good time and a safe time (I know I sound like your mother but that doesn’t mean she’s wrong).


2021/22 Membership Renewals Are Due By 30 June

Member Protection Policy - Reminder

The Committee has ratified a major new policy for the club: Member Protection Policy

The main objective of the new policy is to maintain responsible behaviour and the making of informed decisions by members and other participants at GRC. It outlines our commitment to a person’s right to be treated with respect and dignity, and to be safe and protected from discrimination, harassment and abuse.

In many ways there are no new ideas in this policy and it should not change how we treat each other. It is 100% in alignment with the club’s long standing values.

However, it does codify and inform everyone involved in our club of their legal and ethical rights and responsibilities and the standards of behaviour that are expected of them. It also covers the care and protection of children participating in our club’s activities.

All members are subject to this policy and the club’s Terms of membership, as accepted when applying or renewing membership, have been updated to include reference to it.

Please take the time to read the full document: Member Protection Policy

If you have questions please contact Luke or Adam.


SIRC GRC Training Day - Saturday 26th June - Reminder

Brad has secured Sydney International Regatta Centre at Penrith for a Glebe club training day on Saturday 26th June.

It will be good preparation for NSW Masters the following weekend or for those who have never raced in lanes and want to give it a try.
