The club held it’s Annual General Meeting for 2017 on 21st March reporting back on the 2016 successes and plans for 2017 and future years.
The committee is delighted that the new club President Miriam Luke was elected unanimously by those present at the meeting. Another change is that Chairman Ian Pankhurst steps down but leaves the club in the capable hands of Rob Berrington who was previously Vice Chairman.
This year the club is awarding new trophies for ‘Rower of the year’ in each squad. The junior rowing prizes were awarded in a separate event to Bruce Turnell (Junior Boy) and Alicia Redman (Junior Girl). Senior Man 2016 is Sam Agas, Senior Woman is Natalee Atkinson and Masters is Mike Jennings.
Captain Stan Admiraal gave a report for the year and then contributed to a joint presentation with Rob Berrington on the club’s goals and aspirations for the mid-term. The presentation is available to view below.
