Hi everyone,

I've no time for a full newsletter just yet, but this is a quick note to let you know of two upcoming events:

Saturday 21st July - WARC Hosted Regatta, Champion Lakes

This is the first of two regattas we'll be hosting this year. What does regatta hosting involve, I hear you ask? It means we have to provide caterers, dinghy drivers for umpires, commentators, have the opportunity to run a raffle and a whole lot more. We are especially dependent on our non-rowing partners, friends and family for volunteer work as most of the athletes will be hopping in and out of boats all day.

If you're able to help out or have a mum, dad or partner who can lend a hand, please send an email to Sam Hughes at shughes0@gmail.com stating:

Thanks, we really need a lot of help (about 30 volunteers minimum) to make it happen. It's an important fundraiser for the club so any and all help would be appreciated!

Friday 27th to Sunday 29th July - WARC Weekend Away

After all our hard work on the previous weekend, it's time to let our hair down and relax with a social weekend away. Due to a lack of availability we've moved the weekend away back to the 27th, all Westies and partners are welcome. These weekends are great fun and I highly recommend you head along, especially if you're new to the club!

Where: Fairbridge Village http://www.fairbridge.asn.au/index.php?page=8 Accommodation Cost: ~$55-70 per person for the weekend (depending on numbers as we pay per cottage).

We have tentatively booked the Middlemore and Kitchener Cottages which are next to each other and sleep up to 48 people - beds and pillows are provided but everyone will need to bring their own towels, sheets, blankets and sleeping bags.

Once we have numbers and see what people are interested in we can also look at arranging some activities. They have quite a lot of activities on offer at pretty decent prices - if you want to take a look here's the link http://www.fairbridge.asn.au/index.php?page=21

If you are interested, please RSVP to nicholson.angela@gmail.com by lunch time Monday 16 July as we need to confirm the booking Monday afternoon.

WARC Captain
