As most of you are aware Mike Murphy has decided to end his coaching role within the Juniors.
This is a sad loss and Mike will be sorely missed.

We are trying very hard to minimise the impact on current training schedules and are making arrangements to ensure all current training sessions can continue. We are working with the Club Captain to identify alternative coaches - but it may take some time before things settle down. Plese be patient.

All current sessions will carry on as normal - though there may be a few new faces helping out. If any session needs to be cancelled we will let you know as far in advance as possible. Keep checking the web site for details,

There is no change to the immediate race schedule so, where applicable, please keep Oct 30th - Upper Thames head and Nov 5th - Fours head in diaries. Also don't forget the City of Bristol Head on 13th November.

If you have any questions or need any further information please ring Andy Wiberg between 5 - 7pm on a weekday or catch him at a training session.

There will be changes ahead but the message is please be patient - Keep calm and carry on!!!

Report from the Junior picnic 2009 by Sophie Dun

The weather held out for our large junior gathering on the downs last weekend. After lots of tripping in the 3- legged race and squealing in the egg and spoon (where a few juniors discovered only half the egg's were hard boiled) the prize giving commenced.

Ellie Murphy won a remarkable 8 pots this year and was crowned the Junior of the Year. Jo Pagon was the coaches choice and it is no surprise why due to her dedication, positive attitude and improvement all year.

Finally my unsung hero awards went to Hannah Wiberg and Alice Hurley, for being the main junior coxes and deserving much more recognition!

Well done to everyone for a fantastic year (76 pots in all). I look forward to an equally brilliant 2009/2010!
