Welcome to your own section of our new website. Here, we endeavor to keep you up-to-date with any news and events that affect our Friends of Durham Rowing in particular. You will also be able to browse through our photo albums, watch videos of DUBC in action, check out the Rower of the Month (link in the sidebar), read an archive of newsletters and see the progress that DUBC is making towards its current fundraising goal.
If you have any photos or videos that you would like to see added to the website or news of any events that you would like posted, please do get in touch.
As we move in to our next academic year here are a few dates for your diary:
- DUBC Olympics Celebration Event: 9-11th November 2012. This event will be a chance for you to get together with your old crew mates to race in a fun regatta alongside Olympic Rowers, followed by a black tie celebration dinner and speeches. Over the weekend there will be guest speakers, a BBQ, a tour of our new facilites and many more activities for you to enjoy in Durham where you spent several happy years.
- Alumni Races: provisionally 8th January 2012 Following the great deal of fun and enjoyment had by all concerned last year, we hope to run our event on the same weekend as last year in conjunction with the Durham University Alumni Sports Day. This will be confirmed in the coming weeks, so keep the date in your diary, but do keep checking.
- Durham Regatta: provisionally 9th-10th June. It would be fantastic this year to have a few Alumni Crews coming together again to race at the regatta on our home turf! This year we had a crew comprised of recent leavers and in 2010 we had two crews of a few generations before. If you and your team mates of your time would like to compete and relive the nostalgia, please contact either the President or Vice-President and we shall arrange boats, blades and entries.
- Henley Drinks: 30th June. As ever the students shall be holding their annual Pimm’s Reunion Drinks this Henley Royal on the Saturday Evening, which was quite a raucous event this year but included some very tasty food! It was very good to see so many alumni meeting old friends once again, we hope that you can join us in 2013.
