The $20,000 pile issue

Piling is underway at WARC but it hasn't been without drama: One of our piles fell over after the old deck was removed and as a result, the cost of the deck has increased by about $20,000. 

It's worth remembering our new deck is a $250,000 project being delivered for about half that amount, thanks to the sweat equity brought by Mick Duxbury, Mike Smith and Sam Hughes together with the team. 

And here's two ways you can help:

Donate your time: Come down this weekend (June 18-19) to be part of this once-in-30-years opportunity to literally build the future of WARC. Sign up here. 

Donate your money: Can't make it to the club? Instead you can make a well-timed pre-EOFY tax-deductible donation to our Australian Sports Foundation fund to help cover the cost of the lost pile. Donate here. 

What happened to the pile, you may ask? Well, read the details here. 

Rowers: follow us on facebook

We've made a strategic decision to wind back our email correspondence to only tell subscribers the really important stuff - like how the deck is coming along. For day-to-day operational updates, on regatta dates, run-sheets, on-water updates please subscribe to our Facebook Page and membersl please join the Facebook Group. 

I do apologise for anyone who relies on the newsletter for operational day-to-day updates. From a communications management perspective, it is much easier to use a virtual noticeboard like Facebook where many people can post, including Joe our headcoach and Nick the Captain, rather than relying on emails. I hope you remain subscribed though, as the really important stuff, particularly the bits relevant to people not currently rowing, will come via the newsletter!

Quiz night: July 9
