Pennant season: Bring it.

A summary of this newsletter is as follows: Snaps to those who competed at their first pennant regatta, and who competed in Sydney; Sign the hell up to volunteer on June 21; Go watch the video from Back to Wests and thanks to those who organised and came along; Put July 25 in your diary for the quiz night; Why growing facial hair can be beneficial and other nonsense.

The new kids on the block did us proud. You can check out their awesome action in the WD4+ and WD4+ events in our youtube video of Saturday's racing. Check it out here  
Not to be outdone (ever), Al picked up a third in the mixed double in Sydney with Jen S from Bunvegas. He wasn't sure he was actually going to row... but of course he did, and of course he medalled. 
Dear Sam, 
I am really busy this week and can't fill out the availability spreadsheet. Can you just boat me if I turn up? Thanks in advance,
Chairman of the Board.

It is not my job to coordinate your life. Your five minutes of procrastination because you can't be bothered typing your name into a spreadsheet results in 45 minutes of angst for the whole squad the following morning.

Sort your sh*t out. If you don't have enough time to put in your availability why don't you take a leaf out of the Captain's book and replace the time you spend shaving with this irksome chore.

Thanks for nothing,
Over at the Sydney International Rowing Regatta Centre, our girls in red did us proud, clocking a fourth in the Interstate Women's 8+ and up against a few rowers of rather terrifying pedigree. Loved this pic of determination on Dee's face at the start.
Matt Hort from the Vikings is back in town. For those familiar with the long history of WARC trivia nights, you will know that this will result in an epic battle as the Vikings look to win back the Trivia Crown they lost last year, to a table full of chicks. It's on like Donkey Kong, the gauntlett has been thrown. July 25: Put it in your diary now. 
To everyone who came Back to Wests, we hope you enjoyed it. We're looking to run an event annual in the lead-up to our 150th anniversary in 2018, and use these get-togethers as a chance to bring together our long and pretty awesome history. For those who went - or even those who didn't - stories from the day are now on a video on the WARC website here.
We promise this is not a Rick-Roll
