Details:

Past and current members of the LMH Boat Club are warmly invited to the naming of our new men's eight, bought with money kindly donated by Mark Robson, and named after his sons Peter and John. The event takes place at our Boathouse on Saturday 19 October 2013, 12.30pm to 3.30pm.

This will be a great opportunity to meet up with fellow alumni, see how the Boat Club is doing and find out about alumni Boat Club events planned for the forthcoming academic year. Mark and his family will be attending the event. In his capacity as Honorary President of the Friends of LMHBC, Mark is looking forward to launching formally the LMHBC Presidents' Fund, with keen support from a Steering Committee of enthusiastic alumni rowers who have already offered to help.

After the boat naming, we will also hold the very first Old Boys v Current Boys Race. If you would like to be involved in the race, please email James Mountain. Afterwards, there will be an opportunity for any other alumni who wish to get out in a boat to do so. If this is something a group of you would like to do then please contact James so we can arrange it.

The timings for the event are:

12.30pm   Buffet lunch and drinks reception
1.15pm     Boat naming and speeches
1.45pm     Old Boys vs. Current Boys race
2.15pm     Drinks, cakes and the opportunity to get out in a boat for those that wish to
3.30pm     Finish

We will probably relocate to The Head of the River pub for another drink afterwards.

There is no charge for the event but donations to the LMHBC Presidents' Fund will be warmly welcomed on the day.

If you would like to attend, please inform the Development Office no later than Friday 11 October 2013. For further information, or if you have any questions, please contact James.
