Good Evening Rowers!

Over the last few weeks, I have begun work in my new role as Chairman of this fine club.

It will be a busy few weeks and there has been lots of exciting work going on behind the scenes as we get ready for next season.

A key focus for the summer months is player recruitment. As we discussed at the AGM, it is key to our clubs future that we continue to attract new members to our club.

As you may have seen, we launched a new member deal in May to coincide with a number of key University Graduate events. Social media was ablaze with details of this deal and interest levels have been high. This is a great first step but we must continue to actively seek new members.

We all have a responsibly to promote our club. Wherever you find yourself this summer and to all the people you meet, I challenge you to share all the positive experiences you have had at Rottenrow. Whether that be promoting the great people you play alongside throughout the season, the world class facilities our club benefits from at Glasgow Green, the best value membership fees in Glasgow or the high level of coaching Mr McNeill provides each week, please spread the word about our great club and what it means to you.

I am confident that if we all make a conscious effort to attract new members to Rottenrow that we will be successful.

As I mentioned earlier, there will be numerous updates over the coming weeks, as we begin to share the exciting plans for the summer months and into next season.

Speak to you all again very soon and good luck recruiting!

Lots of Love,
Fran

Chairman
Rottenrow BlueSox
