I have just been down to the river at Godstow and the water is still very high and fast, it is extremely unlikely that the river will drop enough over the course of the weekend for the J14 squad to safely go on the water.
This is to confirm that there will be supper available at 5:30pm for girls that are attending rowing training on Monday 7th December before the HSOBC music evening. There may be a small charge for this meal if your daughter is not a boarder.
I am very much looking forward to the event and I hope to see many of you there on the night.
Due to the high winds forecast for this Saturday (5th December) we have decided to move training for all squads from Godstow up to the the school gym.
The timings will run as follows:
J14s: Gym 8am to 10am then Godstow till 12pm
J15s - Seniors: Gym 8am to 12pm
Sunday 6th December is off for all squads.
Due to the adverse weather forecast this weekend we have decided to move training on Saturday to the gym for all squads, please see below for details.
The forecast for Sunday looks much better so we are looking to run training as normal at the river, it will however be very cold so please ensure that your daughter comes prepared with adequate clothing.
We would like to invite you to the annual Boat Club Music Evening which is taking place on Monday 7th December from 6.30pm in the main school hall.
All the rowers will have supper provided at school and then join their parents for the concert.
Arrangements for HSOBC October mini-camps:
The J14 mini-camps will run from Monday 19th to Thuirsday 22nd October 2015. The sessions will run as follows:
Mon 19th - Godstow: 12pm to 4pm
Tue 20th - Godstow: 12pm to 4pm
Wed 21st - Gym 10am to 12pm
Thu 22nd - Godstow: 8am to 12pm
Due to restrictions on the number of boats we can have available at Reading but mainly because of the way it is run for the younger rowers (they have to sit on the water before they race for several hours as they are set off at the back of the field) we have decided not to race the J13s or J14s at this event.
