New 2011/2012 Season
Saturday, 20 August 2011 14:16

The new rowing season in Shandon opened with two very positive meetings.    On Friday 2nd September a meeting of new adult novice rowers indicated that we will be starting the season with at least 10 adults with ambitions to row competitively for the club.   This is a great improvement on Karen Corcoran O'Hare our sole, if outstanding, adult competitive rower in 2011.     We are still keeping open the option of an adult recruitment campaign.    

The junior meeting on Saturday 3rd was very successful with 90 enthusiastic attendees.   It was great to see so many faces from last season and we were also delighted to welcome 25 newcomers most of whom are graduates of our summer Learn to Row camp.   It will take some time to effectively organise this large group into an efficently working coaching and training schedule and I hope that everyone will bear with us as we go about this. 

Junior recruitment is now effectively closed.
