Tents (Friday at 10) and Marshalls (Saturday & Sunday at 9:30)

Just a quick reminder that we’ll be putting up the tents tomorrow (Friday) starting at 10am and hopefully finishing by 11:30. Please come along if you are available.

I have also attached details of how we will organise crews at the start this year.  Can all start marshals please read over this before Saturday?

Can I ask everyone who is down on the rota to be a start marshal to come to the event briefing at 9:30 each morning and then stay behind after that so that we can allocate people to marshalling groups and answer any questions you may have on the marshalling plan?

Regatta Rota

Hello Everyone

The Rota for Jobs for our upcoming Regatta weekend is attached.

As you can see everyone that has let me know they can help out has a job (perhaps even 2) – if anyone has been missed come and see me first thing Saturday Morning and I will give you something to do (no need to feel shy).

If there are any parents / juniors available and are at a loose end come to regatta control at any point and we can find you a task, many hands make light work.

Please bring your lovely cakes tray bakes sandwiches filled rolls etc to the Tea Tent first thing each morning, if you can spare ½ an hour make yourself known to the Tent Folk and they can then fit you in to help out.

Remember to wrap up warmly, put on your smiley welcoming faces – they are great for all to see 😉

See you all Saturday,

Hazel G

Ps. Friday Morning Crew see you all at 10am sharp – to put up the Tents

Ice Picture – 2nd Feb 19

Just 2 patches of ice left.  Should lift in the next couple of days but, sadly, no rowing on Sunday as the steps/pontoons are not free of ice and there’s a 100m section at the corner by the wall that’s solid.

Jobs Rota

Hello Everyone

Please find attached a rough Rota for the event this weekend. If I’ve missed anyone that has volunteered please just come and fill in the gaps.

If I’ve given you a task you are not sure about, please ask someone who has been involved before and they will help & point you in the right direction.

A few names have been pencilled into the Tea Tent Rota – however I am looking for anyone feeling generous with their time to step in and help when able.

I think that the tent will be under siege and all hands Young & Old are needed and welcomed.

If I forget to say to everyone here is my THANK YOU (IN ADVANCE)

Scottish Rowing Growth Mindset Workshop 4th October 18:30 at the Aquadome

Scottish Rowing are holding a workshop next Thursday for IRC club members – please see attached poster for details.

The link to register is:

If you want more information about the event, please have a look at the following video or the text below (which you will find on the booking link):-

Individuals who believe their talents can be developed (through hard work, good strategies, and input from others) have a growth mindset. They tend to achieve more than those with a more fixed mindset (those who believe their talents are innate gifts). This is because they worry less about looking smart and they put more energy into learning. When entire organisations embrace a growth mindset, their employees, volunteers, members, parents etc. report feeling far more empowered and committed; they also receive far greater organisational support for collaboration and innovation. In contrast, people at primarily fixed-mindset organisations report more of only one thing: cheating and deception among leaders, employees, volunteers members and others, presumably to gain an advantage in the talent race.

Mindset is a buzzword in many sectors and organisations, even working its way into their mission statements. But when we probe, you often discover that people’s understanding of the idea is limited. This workshop will look at three common misconceptions, how to embed a growth mindset culture across organisations, and provide attendees with tools, methods and techniques to lead organisational change towards creating an environment conducive to Growth Mindset.

This workshop will explore mindset and go beyond the theory of mindset and explore the different mindsets and where they exist in organisations.  It will also look at creating learning environments to improve practice, performance and productivity leading to a GM culture and will also explore effective implementation across clubs.
