The Better-late-than-never edition of

Hello <<First Name>>, the weekend lineup is below but first...
Less than a month to go... 
Are you able to help at this year's Silver Sculls?

Please sign up today, many thanks
A message from our CWO, Judy: A senior at WEY told me recently of two attacks that took place during the summer, one in the Queens Road areas which was a sexual attack by a man on a young man and another on a young women in Portmore Park road. You may not have a junior at the club but I think the best way to tackle the threat, is for everyone to be vigilant and to pass on the information. The police were not willing to share information with me or other clubs as the cases are ongoing and apparently not prepared to advise clubs either. Instead, for information, we are directed to the police websites for Surrey and their Facebook page.
 
Anyway, many of us, and our juniors, leave the club via Portmore Park road and travel on foot by Queens road so please do be aware and do not walk alone at night. We have another week of sunshine and therefore potentially light evenings so please do take care and encourage all juniors, and I would advise that we all take heed, to walk with a friend or be collected. Stay safe.
There's much-to-do about the Club

From 200 Club Chairman, "Greg" Gregory Jones:

Some of you may already have read Nigel Burton's excellent hardback book on the history of Weybridge Rowing Club 1880s-1980s; the first print run sold out quite quickly. For those who have not seen the book, we have now commissioned a second run. 


Copies in hardback are available to buy from our new online shop

This is an excellent read, well-researched and well-written, including an interesting section culled from the letters of Vince Boveington, stroke of the Club's 1924 Olympic four and a complete chapter on the years 1939-45, by George Kenyon (deceased) who served as both Club Secretary and Treasurer, and rowed in the post-war Eight that proved to be one of the fastest ever produced by the Club.

The veteran crews - they were called veterans not masters - of the 80s receive full mention flagging names such as Hudson, Knowles, Cumpper, Wilson, Thomas, et al, and an appendix lists the contributions made by our Honorary Life Members - 19 of them - with, unfortunately, only 7 now surviving. Interestingly only this week, I received a letter from Aurthur Ayliffe, made an Hon. Life member in 1961, now in his 90s and still a strong supporter of the 200 Club, telling me how much he valued the Club and the enjoyment it gave him in his youth.
