The Just-in-time-for-the-weekend edition of

Hello <<First Name>>, the weekend lineup is below but first...
Knowing how and where to report issues with boats or blades is key to maintaining the fleet. Each and every member can help with staying on top of such issues by reporting them using the links provided, via:
  1. the boat booking sheet, or
  2. our new mobile app: weyhey.beezer.com
Both link to this form for your quick completion, including marking the boat booking sheet with 'ooa' (for 'out of action'), if the boat requires major repair or is otherwise not functional or safe to use.
With many thanks to WSA Graham for pursuing to a satisfactory resolution, we are able to bring back to WEY both our Eights - Gladee8Oar and Quickest Wey Too (the red Filippi) - which WLARC kindly stored for us these last 7 months, whilst work has been ongoing to sure up the bank and construct a fish pass. At least for the winter months, the fish pass project is on hold, and expected to restart around Spring 2019.

Along with Graham, we thank Mackey's - the site contractors - for being so approachable and keen to assist in minimising the impact the works have had on our rowing activities.
A message from the Chairman of the 200 Club

200 Club December Draw and Charity Raffle

As you are probably aware the 200 Club holds a quarterly draw and the final draw for this year will take place on SUNDAY 9th DECEMBER  beginning 12 noon with  complimentary wine and nibbles and the draw-proper at 1pm, and I should like to take this early opportunity to invite you to attend. Obviously this is not pure altruism on my part since at this draw we intend also to run a charity raffle to help the homeless at Christmas.
 
For the past five years, at the 200 Club December Draw, we have organised a charity bottle raffle, the proceeds of which have been shared between the 200 Club and a charity that supports the homeless at Christmas; this year that charity may be  Rentstart, the chosen charity of the current Mayor of Elmbridge. Rentstart assists the homeless in the Borough and last year helped around 130 desperate people without homes or who, of necessity, were sleeping rough in our area. We, at Weybridge Rowing Club, are extremely fortunate. We may sometimes complain about the cost of living, rowing club subscriptions, the need for yet another item of racing kit, but this in no way compares to the unfortunate individual who has to wonder how he or she will pay for a next meal or find a bed for the night.

In the past, WEY members and parents of our junior members have been very generous in donating bottles for the raffle, and then purchasing raffle tickets, and that has enabled us to give several hundred pounds to the chosen charity, and I do hope that, this year, you will be similarly supportive. There is a box in the clubroom in which you may leave your donation, so please look in the back of that cupboard and extract the bottle of wine you brought back from last year's holiday, but have not since touched; find the bottle of gin that aunty Mary gave you for your birthday ignoring the fact that you hate gin! Or, put an extra bottle in your weekly shop and give it to the raffle: it does not have to be Château d'Yquem, albeit this may be the tipple of some members.

The December 200 Club Draw and Raffle has, traditionally, proven a very popular social occasion, so please enter the date in your diary now and do join us. You do not have to be a 200 Club member to come along on this occasion, just be there to meet and chat with members from all sectors of the Club: active, social, parents of juniors, and other friends, and support this very worthwhile initiative.

Best wishes
"Greg" Gregory-Jones - Chairman, 200 Club
Gus Cowie - Secretary, 200 Club

Mobility is vital to rowing performance. Mobility is how you sit up straight during the recovery, have strong and efficient leg drive at the catch, and avoid slumping at the finish to squeeze out the last bit of stroke power. Mobility allows you to display your full strength potential in a highly demanding athletic movement - the stroke.

Check out the "Mobility for Rowers" article and video series from Will Ruth of Rowing Stronger, broken into the four areas of the body where most rowers struggle:
