The 2015 Rowing Dinner took place on the evening of Tuesday 17 March at Hathersage House in Somerset West. The evening was a great success as we celebrated the Rowing Club and honoured all those who made the season a successful one. We were honoured to have former Rowing Club Captain and Head Boy of 2010, Brad Carruthers, join us as our guest speaker.
We honoured our top achievers of the season and recognised those who have served the Rowing Club with diligence and commitment. We bade a fond farewell to our Senior Opens who leave the Rowing Club at the end of the season, and congratulated our incoming office bearers for the Rowing Club who will serve in the upcoming 2015-2016 rowing season. Finally, we raised some much needed funds for the Rowing Club by auctioning the naming rights for the newest additions to our fleet of boats. These boats are the Italian made quad and double that won a silver and gold medal respectively at the 2015 SA Schools Rowing Championships!
A big thanks goes to all those who made the evening a success and, most importantly, a big thanks and congratulations to all of the rowers who made the 2014-2015 rowing season the great success that it was.
