I have just received the very sad news that our past president Alan Spong has passed away, aged 94.
The timing is particularly pertinent as the club is planning its 'Row to Remember' Sponsored Row and Alan was one of the last surviving Dunkirk veterans.
His funeral is on Wednesday 13th August at 3pm at:
South Road, Bracknell,
Wokingham, RG40 3DW
Followed on at the nearby pub:
The Golden Retriever
Nine Mile Ride,
Bracknell RG40 3DR
Do you want to learn to row?
If the sight of Helen Stannard returning to the Olympic womens pair or Triggs-Hodge flexing his muscles at Lucerne World Cup Regatta has wetted your appetite to get into rowing, NOW is the time to do something about it.
Kingston Rowing Club will be running the Autumn Adult Learn to Row course at the club boat house in Canbury Gardens from Saturday September 6th to Sunday September 28th 2014 incl.
KRC is holding a fund raising event in support of the Royal Star & Garter Homes.
It involves rowing, running and cycling – there will be the option of doing all three, two or just one of these disciplines - and is scheduled for Saturday 27th September 2014.
We want as many of our current rowers as possible to get involved and we will also encourage many of our crews from the past to re-form for this special occasion.
There will be work carried out on each of the arches of Kingston Railway Bridge until October 2014.
Currently both the Surrey and the Middlesex arch are closed, indicated by a red danger sign slung below the arch. 18/3/2014
