We have 4 members who (so far) have offered to attend the Marlow Rowing Club Presidents dinner – this event is to raise money for the new clubhouse and training facilities at the Marlow Water Sports Hub (MWSH). The MWSH is being built on the Marlow Rowing Club (MRC) site by Marlow Bridge and Longridge Canoe Club will have access, and use of all facilities, so its important that we do our best to support these fundraising efforts!£60 per ticket is expensive so would members be willing to enter into a draw for a ticket at a reduced price so we can make up a LCC table?If you think this a good idea please reply to this post.PS – The elite group of paddlers from the club are already making good use of MRC’s temporary home so we really should do our bit,PPS – It would also be good to support one of our members who is MRC’s President!
