U23 Quiz Night
U23 athletes (including Westies' own Hannah Vermeersch and Matty
Cochran) are holding a fundraiser quiz
night before they fly out to the U23 World Championships in Amsterdam.
Please come down and support our athletes -
being U23 athletes they receive very little support from Rowing
Think about this: you normally pay $5-$10 for
seat fees at each regatta you race at. The U23's have to pay $7500
EACH in seat fees to race at U23 Worlds!
Raffle tickets will be available to buy as well
as an auction featuring memorabilia signed by Western Australian
Doors will open at 5:30pm for a 6pm start.
$20 per ticket, Limited numbers available, secure yours early.
To RSVP and secure your ticket or to organise a table of 8, email Ausrowing_quiznight@hotmail.com

Speaking of our U23 athletes, I recently received
the following update from Matt Cochran, who is training in Adelaide
in the Aussie U23 Mens 8+ :
"Training is going really well. It's kinda
like rowing in an 8 that goes fast and is so stable that the cox
could be doing a lil jig in the middle of pieces and it would
all be fine.
We fly out from Adelaide for Sydney in about
4 weeks for a pre-departure camp, then on to Amsterdam."
Good luck to all of WA's U23 athletes - you
